NES Hands Free from 1989, Lets You Control Mario with Your Tongue
Back in the NES days, Nintendo offered up a controller that, chances are, you've never heard of before. It was the Hands Free, and it was designed for the disabled.
The Hands Free was a huge controller that was strapped to the user's chest. The D-pad was controlled by the user's tongue, while you could control the A and B buttons by blowing and sucking through the pipe.
I'm not quite sure how you could hit both buttons at once, but I'm sure they made it usable.
Back when it was released in 1989 it retailed for $179 straight from Nintendo, but if you want one now you'll have to hit up eBay, where they go for upwards of $600.
lmao its like thi ass hole that made something like this 4 the xbox 360
Randy "N0M4D" Fitzgerald is a gamer who plays with the tools at hand. Don't think "disabled" think "differently abled", you'll know that when its time to throw down in game. Infinity ward the makers of COD4 were nice enough to add his layout to the new update. When you are using your lips to hit buttons its pretty much impossible to hold the look down the barrel button and shoot effectively so the most important part of the layout is a sticky aim down the sight, click once to look down the barrel, click again to un-look
We have created two controller mods for N0M4D over the last couple years. The triggers and shoulder buttons on a normal 360 controller are about useless to him, 4 new buttons right below the normal ABXY buttons were added, the trigger functions are mapped to the thumb sticks, thumb stick clicks and shoulder buttons are hardwired to the 4 new buttons
