One-handed Wii controller is a feel-good mod

Candace Savino

While we love gaming, it's often easy to overlook the fact that people with certain handicaps tend to get left out of the hobby. That's why reader Ryan Culy recently modded the Wiimote and Nunchuck into a controller that can be used with one hand.

Designed for a friend who lost most of his left arm, Ryan moved the "Z" and "C" buttons from the Nunchuck to the Wiimote. The joystick was separated and can be put on a table, knee, or foot, allowing the player to control it with his or her elbow.

Although Ryan makes his creation look and sound easy, we know the process wasn't simple. Everyone's favorite mod genius, Ben Heck, was so impressed that he featured it as his "Pick of the Wii-k."
