Now this is the kind of modification we can all get behind.

Well-known modder Ben Heck created a single-handed Xbox One controller for disabled gamers; now he's done it for the PlayStation 4 controller.

Heck tore down the standard Dual Shock 4 and reassembled all the controller's left buttons on the right side, so those with a disability can still play with only one hand. If you're wondering how he did it, he'll explain during this week's installment of The Ben Heck Show (teaser below). The single-handed Xbox One controller was donated to the Able Gamers Foundation, which was a darn good idea. However, the modded Dual Shock 4 will be given to an element14 community viewer.

I collect games so that when I'm too crippled I can just play games all day.

It's a damned shame this guy's not getting all that bonus money instead of Antivision's sleazy shyster Bobby Kotex.

As far as useful human beings go I'd put this type of thinking far and above that wig model.

So I know this is meant to be a good thing and all, but I actually can't see a good use for this.

Single handed controller. So this is for people who have lost the use of their left hand?

That doesn't really seem like a majority of disabled people, and the title of the article is "for disabled gamers". Well that's not really true, it is for people who lost the use of their left hand. What about people who have lost the use of their right hand? Or both hands?
