This is excellent and I can’t wait to see the adaptive uses that people will find for the hardware. Opening up accessibility expands opportunities for innovation!

One of the cooler bits is how it’s compatible with existing accessibility components so someone who might have been using a controller with ports hacked into it can move their peripherals over with minimal modification.

It’s great this is getting so much coverage. It’s not the first device of this kind, but it’s far cheaper than what came before. The Adroit Switchblade and the Versatility Gaming Controller are similar devices at $400.

This is about the coolest thing Microsoft has ever made.
