Handi-hacked is a VR input device designed to make virtual reality easily accessible for all. This device is built for handicapped individuals who may have inferior motor skills and cannot easily manipulate typical keys such as WASD. It was inspired by a mixture of peripherals I've seen online and my volunteer time at a disable camp every summer. Such a device allows the joys of VR to be simple and intuitive for all handicapped people, as the input device supports a plethora of wheelchairs (motorized or not). Furthermore, it is also a great tool for therapies, VR enthusiasts, or one who may have interest in life bound to a wheelchair. We plan to extend this idea and release our SDK's written at the event and produce/distribute these wheelchair inputs across the world. Thank you for your time.
