The HumanPad is a gamepad, developed by Elmar Hanlhofer. The special design makes it easier for pysically challenged people (without "finger function" ex. tetra plegic) to play with a gamepad/controller/joystick. The main problem with common gamepads 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 works fine, but its not ready for mass production.
