Logitech’s Adaptive Gaming Kit Makes Gaming More Accessible For Everyone

Published

Logitech has launched a new product in the market for gamers that offer improved accessibility customization at a more affordable rate. The new Logitech G Adaptive Gaming Kit is a collection of 12 buttons and triggers designed to work with Microsoft’s Xbox Adaptive Controller to make gaming more accessible with disabilities.

Logitech designed the kit with input from the Microsoft’s Inclusive Tech lab and several accessibility groups, including the AbleGamers Charity and the Abilities Research Center at Mount Sinai and SpecialEffect.

“Everyone’s needs are different, and the Logitech G Adaptive Gaming Kit delivers a wide range of configuration options to make gaming possible for all,” says AbleGamers COO Steve Spohn. “We appreciate the opportunity to work closely with Logitech G on the design of this kit and look forward to continuing our partnership in the future.”

The Logitech G Adaptive Gaming comes with three 1.4- inch buttons and three 2.5-inch buttons with mechanical switches and stabilizer bars for the consistent press. It also includes two large triggers with variable force turning and four light-touch buttons with easy actuation. The buttons and the triggers have space on them for Logitech’s included sticker for labeling custom buttons. Along with the two buttons and triggers, users get two game mats (one rigid and one foldable) that can be used to arrange the buttons in a layout you want using the included Velcro ties.

Standard controllers don’t take into account physical impairments that can make minor motor functions difficult. Logitech G Adaptive Gaming aims to change that and make gaming more accessible. Microsoft’s Xbox Adaptive Controller has supported third-party inputs like this since launch, but each buttons could cost almost $50 when bought directly from Microsoft. On the other hand, you can get the Logitech’s kit with three small buttons, three large buttons, four light-touch buttons, and two-variable trigger controls, all for $99.
