3dRudder compatible with Xbox Adaptative Controller with USB cable

The 3dRudder, which we reviewed here, is now not only available in Microsoft stores and online at Microsoft.com, it is also even easier to attach: all you have to do is plug the 3dRudder in the Xbox Adaptive Controller.

The Adaptive Controller has 2 USB ports, one on each side. When you plug the 3dRudder in the right USB port, it takes the functionality of the right stick of the traditional gamepad -for camera control, gaze & aiming. Likewise, when you plug it in the left port it takes the functionality of the left stick -to move your character or vehicle, depending on in-game controls. Once your 3dRudder is plugged in, you just put your feet on it and start playing.

This is a boon to players suffering various mobility issues. With the 3dRudder, they can make use of their feet while playing games requiring a lot of physical input. The 3dRudder can be used for a number of inputs:

  • a foot keyboard with up to 8 key bindings
  • a foot mouse with exactly the same functionalities as a hand mouse
  • a foot joystick with up to 4 axes
  • a foot powered VR motion controller

The 3DRudder is priced at $99.
