Nicest mod ever: One-handed Gamecube controller

Modder Hasse's brother can only use his right hand, but he loves to play videogames. this inspired him to make what has to be the most heartwarming controller hack ever: a one-handed Gamecube controller.

His solution was to re-work pieces of several eBay'd Gamecube controllers into one fully functional device. The trick here was to use an accelerometer and a digital-to-analog converter to reassign what you'd normally do on the d-pad to tilts of the controller. He even put in a switch for analog/d-pad preference and LED indicator lights. He also wrote custom software and relocated a trigger button. Wow.

As you'll see in the video, it all works nicely.

This guy rules.
