Ultimate gaming for the disabled

Russian company builds state-of-the-art apparatus

As far as complicated computer apparatuses are concerned, we weren't so sure about the " Ergopod 500 ," especially for those who live anywhere near earthquake country. But Russian-based Gravitonus seems to have done it right, with a new gaming system for the physically disabled that appears a lot more secure.

The "Alternative Computer Control System" shown on Medgadget looks like a cross between a piece of ultra-modern Danish furniture and something you'd find in Dr. Evil's underground control center. Despite the aesthetic qualities, it's an engineering marvel that incorporates features even quadriplegics can use, such as a "tongue-controlled directional command module."

Special considerations aside, we wouldn't be surprised if some hard-core gamers without disabilities would be interested in purchasing one of these. At least some people, after all, are buying the " Roccaforte ."
