Last year, peripheral equipment manufacturer HORI announced that it was producing barrier-free controllers for Nintendo Switch. HORI Flex, Back in June, we had the honor to try out the multifunctional Flex controller and some accessories provided by the UK distributor Pretoria, United Kingdom.

These “co-pilot” controls reflect similar features of the Xbox Adaptive Controller, although Flex’s ability to mix EyeGaze with other controller functions is not possible on Microsoft’s controllers. You can check EyeGaze using Flex in the Pretorian video below, they are demonstrating the settings of some small indie game called Minecraft:
