The Xbox Adaptive Controller (XAC) is a first-of-its-kind device designed to allow people with a wide range of physical abilities to access game commands and play video games alone – and with friends. The physical access XAC provides isn’t something everyone needs. But anyone who does need it can now have it. What a change!
It’s all the more special because the Cerebral Palsy Foundation (CPF) has had a role in this process. From our first conversations with Microsoft nearly five years ago, we’ve been able to share our experience and provide insights throughout the entire development process. The relationship has been wildly rewarding, to know we have had input into the form factor and user experience of XAC.
This month CPF is also launching user profiles to help those with disabilities choose the most effective switches and setups to meet their specific physical challenges. It’s part of the magic of getting to work with the fabulous folks behind this wonderful addition to our world. Please contact us if you’d like to share your set-up with us and get access to our library of user profiles.
