One-handed Video Game Controllers?

Talk-show co-host Mike Reed plays video games with one-hand, following a shooting accident in 1993. Although he loves playing video games, most games are impossible to play one-handed. "They’re mostly fantasy and adventure games that require many rapid motions using both hands," Reed said. "It excludes people with temporary arm injuries or limb deficiencies." But Reed intends to change that, designing a dual-motion game controller that combines all movement, button response and directional function into a one-handed video game controller. Reed hopes to market his design with a U.S. game controller manufacturer for all major consoles. Since no prototype has been built yet, it is still unknown how well the controller can perform. Given that many action games require use of both analog sticks and the buttons, it seems difficult to design a controller that can perform all functions with one hand - yet Reed remains optimistic. "I really hope the game controller idea works out," Reed said. "It would be proud knowing that I could contribute to gamers single-handedly."
