The controller aims to enable gamers with disabilities to play more easily, comfortably and longer on the PlayStation 5, the manufacturer says. The controller is being developed in collaboration with members of the gaming community, developers and leading experts from AbleGamers, SpecialEffect and Stack Up , which focus on accessibility issues.

Project Leonardo has extensive customization options, allowing each player to tailor the controller to their own needs. The device comes with a set of interchangeable components, including a variety of analog sticks and buttons of various shapes and sizes.

In addition to changing the form of Project Leonardo, players can also customize special software features, including assigning the same action to multiple buttons.

Project Leonardo can be used as a primary controller or as a secondary controller along with DualSense.

The novelty is also equipped with four 3.5mm jacks for connecting additional accessories.

The company hasn’t specified when Project Leonardo will go on sale.
