Psycho and Neville back on the pitch

Love this clip of legendary England hard man Stuart Pearce scoring using eye and switch-controlled FIFA at our Tales from the Tap fundraiser last week. But he wasn’t the only one hitting the back of the net that day…

Neville (below) was at our Games Room at the same time looking to be able to play games with his son. Neville’s spinal injury means he finds it really difficult to use a controller, especially the joysticks and the buttons on the back. But with a combination of the right laptop tray, a Microsoft XAC, an adapted large joystick and two remapped trigger switches, he’s back on the pitch as well!

(Is that a Starbucks cup...?)
