The one-handed Xbox 360 controller

The drawing board

One of the most popular modders that we have at the moment, Ben Heckendorn, owner of BenHeck.com and creator of the Xbox 360 Laptop, has just unveiled his latest creation: an Xbox 360 controller which can be played with one hand.

Alright, before everyone starts inserting jokes about games that can be played with a single hand, the first thing that we have to remember is that this controller was built with disabled people in mind so that they may also be able to enjoy Xbox 360 games. Don’t you just love a guy who’s got such helpful ideas?

To best describe the layout of this modded controller, Ben explains it best:

I managed to get both rumble controllers on this thing because I didn’t want to accidentally build a Sixaxis. The right analog shoulder button has been moved down and flipped for use with the pinky finger. The X Y B A triggers, along with right bumper, have been rewired with tact switches to the middle for actuation by the middle and ring fingers. The left analog trigger and left bumper have not been moved.
