The Playstation 2 Switch Interface Deluxe (PS2-SID for short) is finally available to buy. It can be set-up in a huge number of ways to best suit each gamer. It's also a lot of fun to use in a team setting, where gamers share controls. Click on the pictures above to find out more.
Namco's "Star Trigon", one of the finest one-switch games in existence, has just surfaced on eBay for £69.95. You can get these PCBs working at home with an accessibility switch by following my JAMMA D.I.Y. guide. If you're really rich, you could always fit it in a JAMMA compatible full sized arcade machine. Don't tell me though - I'd be sick jealous.
The beautifully simplistic mouse based interface makes this highly accessible to head-tracker and eye-tracker users. For more games like this, such as The Trial, visit Zap Dramatic.
If you didn't know, Retro Remakes have been long term backers of the accessibility in games cause. They've seen some of the finest accessible games come into being via two of their recent programming competitions. They've given forum space for game developers in the "Accessibility Angle". They've now added an Accessibility section to their Blog.
There's much more to Retro Remakes than just this, but thank you!!! It's a big deal, and it's appreciated.
A short YouTube video of a prototype Guitar Hero controller for blind gamers. The gamer wears a glove for fret work. Small transponders tap the guitarists fingers, prompting them as to which buttons to press. Inspirational work from Eelke Folmer and his team.

I saw the above Bumper cars in Maplin Electronics, £80 for 2 recently. They use two forward-neutral-back joysticks enabling tank like control. I'm guessing that you could get this usable with just two switches: One connected to both forward controls, and the second connected to a single back control for spin.
N.B. "If you use mechanical high current relays, you can use standard special needs / adaptive switches to run this toy". Do not do so otherwise! Added to the OneSwitch.org.uk D.I.Y. pages here.
