Losing a limb doesn’t have to mean losing the ability to play video games, thanks to this cool-ass controller. Designed by grad students at Johns Hopkins, the controller, called GEAR allows players to use their feet to control action onscreen. Most observers weren’t able to tell the difference between players using regular controllers and players using the specialized controllers. Pretty damn neat.
