Entertainment company Sony has announced that they are developing a more accessible controller for people with disabilities.
The new device is being designed with the help of computer experts, community members, and game developers.
Sony hopes that it will help players with disabilities play games more easily and comfortably.
The controller is currently known as Project Leonardo. It is built to address common challenges faced by many players with limited motor control, “including difficulty holding a controller for long periods, accurately pressing small clusters of buttons or triggers, or positioning thumbs and fingers optimally on a standard controller.”
Sony says the new controller will include a kit of swappable components, including a variety of stick caps and buttons in different shapes and sizes.
Gamers will also be able to store their preferred settings as control profiles and easily switch between them.
Sony says the new kit is still being developed and the company is continuing to gather important feedback from the community.
