A 3D Printed Playstation Controller Mod to Play Entirely One-Handed

Because gaming should be all-inclusive, inventor Akaki Kuumeri has created a snap-on attachment for Playstation 4 DualShock controllers that allow a player to operate all the peripheral’s buttons one-handed. The mod, which is constructed entirely from 3D printed pieces, even enables the use of the right thumbstick (typically for adjusting camera view) by moving the whole controller around a hinged pivot resting against your leg. Now that’s a clever design.

The right-side trigger buttons can also be operated with the left hand thanks to an extending arm, with a design that allows both the R2 and L2 triggers to be pressed at once, as is often necessary for first-person shooters. Akari has the 3D printing model files available for free download over at PrusaPrinters, with the default being a left-handed model. To make a right-handed model, just mirror all the pieces before printing. Of course, this is assuming you’ve already completed step one of the whole process: buying a 3D printer.

Not only is this a great opportunity for gamers with hand-related disabilities, but also for those of us who want to multitask while gaming. Like being able to snack or test. I mean, it never hurts to multitask. Except while driving, then it can hurt the worst. Eyes on the road!
