Video games are wonderful, there is no doubt about that. However, there are many things you could improve on and one of them is accessibility. There are already several projects that show that it is possible to break down barriers so that this hobby is enjoyed by more people.

Many times these initiatives do not come from companies, but from community members out of a genuine interest in improving gaming for everyone. Such is the case of Akaki Kuumeri, a content creator for YouTube who designed an adapter that allows you to play PlayStation 5 with one hand.

It is an adapter made up of 2 sections that is made to be installed in a DualSense. The idea is that the most important functions of the remote can be used without having to occupy 2 hands.

How does this work? The first thing we have is a device that is installed on the stick and allows you to control it by reloading its rubber base on a surface and moving the control. The other part consists of additional buttons that go next to the bumper and trigger of the hand that controls the DualSense. These are used to control the R1 / L1 and R2 / L2 buttons on the other part of the controller.

Now, there are several games that use the directional stick or the front buttons, what happens in these cases? Kuumeri designed a kind of paddles that are installed on these buttons and that allow you to press them without having to touch them.

A big step for accessibility on PlayStation 5

Best of all, the adapter can be adapted to either the left or right side of the controller. In addition, its creator uploaded the plan to his page for anyone to download for free and you can make it happen with a 3D printer.

It is worth mentioning that Kuumeri will also partner with Special Effect, a charity that helps people with disabilities play video games. Thus, it is an invention that will do good to many. Hopefully Sony will pay attention to this and offer a similar product for those who do not have access to a 3D printer.
