"Barrier-free Controller for Home Videogames by Namco
http://hustle-club.com

This redesigned game pad is compatible with the Sony PlayStation 2.  It has 
oversized buttons and a joystick on it, but also has switch ports for the 
addition of external switches."


I found this info from www.connsensebulletin.com/gap2005.html. However, 
there's nothing on the Hustle-club web-site about this (although if I could 
read Japanese this might help). They told me that no hardware was exhibited 
for this, but there were pamphlets and two people from Namco that could 
speak a little English.


Some more interesting Japanese sites around assistive technology:

controller in 2002)

(English translation of bespoke accessible USB controllers

 If only we could bridge the language barrier....

All the best,
