Objective: Create an ambidextrous one-handed controller for the purpose of PC gaming and general interface accessibility.
Why?: One-handed controllers have been created in the past, but they are specifically designed for only one hand in mind (only works for left hand or for right hand). I wanted to challenge myself by creating one solution which is equally usable for either hand the user will be using.
How it works:
General: Has left-right mouse click and mouse movement (as a downward joystick).
Game: Has hot buttons for actions and a joystick for directional movements. All can be used by one hand.
Ambidextrous design: 2 sides of the mouse will be identical (2 sets of buttons) for user to change side and use it with their one hand. A switch is set up to change the side/ direction of the buttons/ joysticks.
Hardware: Left-right mouse buttons, buttons, joysticks as scroll wheels - direction - mouse movement, scroller (using a joystick), Wired connection.
Functionality: Internal test with Games & PC tasks.
