QuadStick controller brings PS3, PC, Xbox One, 360 and Android gaming to quadriplegic gamers
A games controller made for quadriplegics has appeared on Kickstarter with the name QuadStick.
The QuadStick uses a single joystick with four sip-and-puff sensors, a lip position sensor and push switch, that allow users complex controls using just their mouths.
These inputs are all run through a 32-bit ARM processor which outputs to USB and Bluetooth. That means it can work with PCs, Android devices, PS3, and with the right adapter Xbox One and 360 also.

The QuadStick is configurable, allowing each input to be set as a certain button, with several pre-arranged options available. Modes can be shifted to control the left analogue stick, D-pad or mouse cursor. Voice controls can also be used with third-party voice recognition software like Dragon Naturally Speaking.
At the time of publishing, the $10,000 Kickstarter goal is still quite far off with $4,415 contributed so far. But it's only just started so there's still plenty of time left.
