Re: One handed controller for disabled son

Hello all, user "Jonathan" made a controller for me and I received it yesterday. Will keep you all informed of how it works out.

Jonathan can you post some of the pics?

Thank you all for your ideas!

Re: One handed controller for disabled son

Mario seems to be M-I-A. Problem I have is my son overheard my wife and I talking about it and is now asking daily, hourly when it is coming. Our mistake. :-) He is like that whenever we order anything for him online. Anybody else interested in helping? I'll pay for the parts, shipping and labor. Ma...

Re: One handed controller for disabled son

He has no use of his right hand. Cannot move his fingers, for this picture he basically wedged the controller into his right hand using his left hand.

Re: One handed controller for disabled son

Wow...thanks for all the great ideas and that you are all really into it. I know a five year old that is going to be very happy (I hope).

At this point a controller that would allow him to play mario would be great. So, how is that best done? He needs to use his left hand. I would be willing to pay for a...
