With Project Leonardo, Sony is developing an accessible controller kit.
At CES, SONY presented Project Leonardo, an accessible controller kit for the PlayStation 5. Developed with the help of accessibility experts, community members and game developers, it aims to make it easier, more convenient and longer for gamers with disabilities to play their games.
The configurable controller, which is still in development, creates new gaming possibilities for gamers and works with many third-party accessibility accessories.
Sony said of Project Leonardo: “The kit was designed to address common challenges faced by many gamers with limited motor control, including difficulty holding a controller for long periods of time, accurately pressing small groups of buttons or triggers or optimal thumb and finger positioning on a standard controller.”
On the hardware side, the kit is customizable with interchangeable components, including analog stick caps and buttons of different shapes and sizes. This allows you to create different control layouts. The distance between the analog stick and the gamepad is also adjustable to suit the physical needs of the player.
In addition, keys can be assigned on the software side and control profiles can be created.
Project Leonardo can also be paired with DualSense wireless controllers, but can also be used as a standalone controller.
