Xbox Adaptive Controller has been recognised for its innovative approach to inclusive design by the prestigious Victoria & Albert Museum. Based in London, the museum will house the Xbox Adaptive Controller within its Rapid Response Collecting gallery – a curation of objects that signal major moments in history that touch the world of design and manufacturing.

The Xbox Adaptive Controller will sit alongside twelve other objects and will have a permanent place in a public area at the Victoria & Albert Museum – which houses a collection of more than 2.3 million objects that span over 5,000 years of human creativity. Other iconic items with the Rapid Response Collecting, noted for its impact on society or design, include an Oculus Rift VR headset and a pair of nude Cristian Louboutin shoes.

 

The Xbox Adaptive Controller is available today at the Microsoft Store for £79.99. The first-of-its-kind controller lets gamers with limited mobility plugins assistive aids such as buttons, joysticks and switches to allow them to play video games on Xbox and Windows 10 PCs.
