Ben Heck's Plan To Make Gaming Open To All 33

An anonymous reader writes "Legendary DIY gaming guru Ben Heck has given a new interview in which he talks about the Access Controller, his modular controller for consoles that lets disabled gamers play with one hand, and how he plans to update it for the next generation of consoles: 'I'm sure I will. At the very least people are going to want the accessibility controllers I build...People have already asked about them for the next-gen consoles, and that was at E3. When I was there, the thing I looked at the most was the controllers. The Xbox One looks pretty similar to what we have at the moment, but they finally fixed the D-pad.'"

    He may be popular, but sometimes he can totally screw up too.

    So can anyone, legendary or not.

    The fact that you immediately knew who they were talking about though kind of proved their point... And legendary isn't always good (though in this case I think it is)

    I think it's awesome that he's willing to put his time, energy and ingenuity towards those less fortunate in the gaming community. Ben has a reputation for some awe-inspiring feats of engineering, and if he's able to use those talents to enable more gamers to enjoy the art and science of Video Games, then good on him.

    The world needs more people like Ben Heck.

The moon may be smaller than Earth, but it's further away.
