Ben Heckendorn's one-handed Xbox 360 controller
Just when we think our man Ben Heckendorn has floored us for the last time with his insane(ly amazing) console hacking projects, he pulls another stunning hat trick on us. Built by request for a serviceman injured in Iraq, Ben's single handed Xbox 360 controller places the four right-thumb buttons and right bumper at the middle and ring fingers, the right trigger at the pinky, and the left at the index -- but the most inspired bit is the left stick placed beneath on an extension, to be used as a fulcrum while the whole thing rests on a leg or other surface. And despite it all, it still has rumble. Just brilliant. Something tells us these one-handed controller hacks could be big sellers if mass produced. Ben, you laying down the patents yet?
