Plop HumanPad


page update: 16/aug/2008

Description


The HumanPad is a gamepad, developed by Elmar Hanlhofer. The special design allows pysically challenged people (without "finger function" ex. tetra plegic) to play with the Microsoft XBOX. The main problem with the XBOX Controller is to use the analog triggers (with the forefingers) and the buttons or sticks (with the thumb) at the same time. The solution is to use the triggers with the wrist. It should be easy to modify the HumanPad to help people with other handicaps too.


The HumanPad can be connected to the following devices

  • to the PC with USB.
  • to the Microsoft XBOX and XBOX 360.
  • to the Sony Playstation2 with a XBOX->PS2 adapter.
  • The HumanPad works fine, but its not ready for mass production.
