    Abstract

    This University of South Australia and Flinders University collaborative industrial design educational project aimed to design, develop, and prototype a specialised gaming controller that children with cerebral palsy hand impairments could use. The project saw the development of two different specialised game controllers that could be used to play a range of custom-designed computer games while providing tactile vibration feedback to the user's hands to increase game realism and their sense of gameplay.
