The Microsoft - Xbox Adaptive Controller (often known a XAC) offers a large range of inputs for switches and joysticks and has a few buttons built-in.
However, for many less able users, operating many separate devices can in itself prove a challenge.
Celtic Magic has a range of buttons and special light force joysticks that can plug straight into the Adaptive Controller. These can be mounted on special supports offering a bespoke way to connect to the Adaptive Controller.
For sophisticated control, the Celtic Magic HEX multifunction joystick is a device that offers full control using a single joystick* and one button.
This includes combination controls for driving/ walking & running using a single joystick*.
*several styles available
Joysticks for MS XAC
All our miniature joysticks for our GCM100 product can be supplied for use with the XAC.
These made to order miniature joysticks are available as desk mounted, arm-mounted, chin operated or single-handed use and can be built to be normal force or light* force in operation.
(* except the J4 model)
HEX multifunction joystick
Any of our joysticks can be used with our HEX product.
HEX uses the shape of a hexagon to selected six different things by first moving the joystick to a corner of the hex shape.
ie. The HEX could be one moment the left joystick, the next - buttons, the next - a single-handed driving or walking mode. With a little practice, all modes are swappable in a fraction of a second.
Mounts & Things
Sometimes it's just easier to mount switches and joysticks off a standard cushioned mounting plate we call Hand Supports bases.
From such a base our J1 joysticks and switches are designed to be firmly mounted from miniature articulated arms that can be adjusted to any angle to suit the individual.
