One of my greatest fears in life is getting into an accident and losing a finger or a hand. Nothing scares me more because it would impair my ability as a gamer. Well friends, it seems I have to worry no more. This bad ass controller was made by one Ben Heckendorn, the maker of the way too cool 360 laptop:
This is actually a redesign of his One Handed Controller, the original is being readied for retail sale and looks like this:
I think the redesign is a huge improvement. The original (called the access) seems way too bulky to be a one handed controller. The only thing I'm not really crazy about on the redesign is the placement of the secondary joystick. It's on the bottom and according to Ben, it's meant to be manipulated by balancing it on your leg and moving the controller itself. It's a great idea but it seems like it would take some getting used to. The only question that remains is, is the D-pad any better then the original 360 pad? Ben Heckendorn's Blog
Bonus: Scroll down on the blog and check out the portable SNES. Looks kinda like a Sega Nomad.
