An engineer is helping to make playing Nintendo Switch a lot more accessible for gamers everywhere.
Engineer Julio Vazquez created two 3D-printed peripherals for the Nintendo Switch’s Joy-Con controllers, allowing players who only have the use of one hand to play Switch games more easily.
Two different models were showed off by the AbleGamers Charity on Twitter, demonstrating how the adapters work better in one hand than the standard Joy-Con grip.
Vazquez created the design on the right in April, which puts the two Joy-Cons right next to each other, effectively closing the gap that the standard Joy-Con grip creates and making it easier for players to reach every button.
But some games with more complex control schemes, like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, require more simultaneous button and joystick interaction though, so Vazquez also created the design on the left.
Vazquez says he was inspired to create the single-hand Joy-Con adapters by his friend who lost his ability to use his right hand.
