Microsoft has announced the XBOX Adaptive Controller, an controller designed for people with disabilities. 

The tech company designed the Adaptive Controller to help gamers of all shapes, sizes, and abilities play games however they can. It's can also be used on Windows 10 PC's. 

It's got ports into which players can plug switches, buttons, pressure-sensitive tubes, and other gear in order to control any function a standard controller can do.

On the back of the controller, there’s a line of 3.5 mm jacks (a total of 19 of them), which is the standard connection for assistive input devices. 

If the setup process sounds a little too complex or difficult, don't worry because there's a default profile already set up on the controller. You'll have an option to set up 3 custom profiles, too. 

The controller is set to come out a little later this year at $99 each.
