The future is here! A company as big as Microsoft has came out with one of the coolest adaptive products to date! This device will have a HUGE impact on the disabled gamers community! It opens up a whole new world for people with physical disabilities and gives them the ability to customize their set ups to what works for them. There are 19 ports on the back of the Xbox Adaptive Controller, each to represent a function of a standard controller. This is something we highly recommend looking into as you can also pair it with Xbox One's Co-Pilot feature, allowing 2 people to play as 1. This would make for a very entertaining activity!
