Xbox Adaptive Controller

A controller for gamers with limited mobility.

Create a custom controller experience that is uniquely yours. Designed primarily to meet the needs of gamers with limited mobility, the Xbox Adaptive Controller features large programmable buttons and connects to external switches, buttons, mounts, and joysticks to help make gaming more accessible.

Plugged In | Microsoft Story Labs
