Logitech Bundles Assistive Technology Switches at a Breakthrough Price

Logitech Gaming, working with AbleGamers and other groups just released the Logitech G Kit for the XBox Adaptive controller. The kit includes 10 standard AT switches plus two variable input Triggers, two mounting boards and accessories for about $100.

Bill Binko of “That’s Frikkin Huge! To buy that kit from traditional AT vendors would cost over $600 just for the switches. This is what happens when consumer electronics companies turn their eye on the AT space. There is an entire market waiting for devices they can use, and we should all be celebrating this amazing progress.”

Although these switches were designed to be used with the Xbox Adaptive Controller, they have standard AT 1/8″ jacks that can be used on a variety of assistive technology devices.

“Congrats first to Logitech G and AbleGamers for making this great kit, but also to Microsoft for making the XAC use standard AT interfaces. That makes all of these switches useful in things OTHER than the XAC such as speech generating devices, power chairs, adapted toys and more. Great Job!”, Bill said.
