Finally, Nibler interviewed Steve Spohn, chief operating officer of AbleGamers, an organization that “helps people with disabilities be able to play video games again,” Spohn explains, “through using technology to bridge the gap between desire and ability. We give people actual, physical controllers, whether that’s making it from parts we have in the shop, 3D printing, or just buying some technology off the shelf, like an Xbox adaptive controller.”
