Sandals that help the disabled play video games without using hands
Three engineering students in the United States have developed sandals that allows users to play video games using only their feet.
The game-controlling sandals were built to give disabled video gamers and amputees a way of playing without the use of their hands.
The device has been developed by three students, one of whom lost both hands due to a meningitis infection. It has been succesfully tested with many popular games.
The device allows people to socialise in a way in which their disability is not a factor.
