Sony’s Project Leonardo created a lot of headlines a few months ago. Now, the brand has shared the images and details regarding the new Access controller for the PS5 console.
Previously, the controller made its first appearance at CES 2023 under the name Project Leonardo. It is a highly-customizable accessibility controller kit created to aid players with disabilities to play games without any hassle and for longer periods.
The device has been built in collaboration with accessibility experts. As for the controller, it comes with a large number of swappable buttons and stick caps so that the players can develop different combinations for a range of motion, unique strength, and physical needs.
The Sony Access Controller will get the following:
- Analog stick caps (Standard, dome, and ball stick cap)
- Button caps of different shapes and sizes consist of pillow-sized button caps.
- Flat button caps
- Wide flat button caps (which cover two button sockets)
- Overhand button caps (which benefit players with smaller hands as they are close to the center) Curve button caps (which can be pushed if placed along the top or pulled if placed along the bottom of the controller)
- Swappable button cap tags to help in marking the inputs that will be used to map each button.
Not only this, but the players can also use the access controller on flat surfaces or set it on an AMPS mount or a tripod. The distance of the analog stick from the controller can also be adjusted without any issues. Players can also attach their specialty switches, buttons, or analog sticks with the four 3.5mm AUX ports offered in the controller.
The button mapping feature of the controller will allow the players to select orientation according to their preference. At the same time, access controllers and one DualSense wireless controller can be used collectively as a single unit. The toggle mode of the device lets the players alter the behavior of any button on the controller.
