XOGO: Universal Adaptor for the use of Assistive Devices for Game Consoles

Noam and Ray from Bansen Labs provided a demonstration of the XOGO universal adaptor that allows a gamer to use assistive devices, leveling the playing field. With the XOGO adaptor the player can utilize a number of assistive devices. For instance; head switches, buddy buttons, foot pedals, and tons of other devices that you already use or is available.

XOGO Co-founder Sean Baron came up with the idea for a universal adaptor so that he and his brother could play video games together. Sean devised the universal adaptor so that the assistive devices his brother uses could easily be used with their existing game console.

Visit Bansen Labs to find out more about the XOGO.
