During its presentation at CES 2023, Sony officially announced Project Leonardo, the new PlayStation 5 remote controller intended for use by people with disabilities thanks to its special design with detachable and reprogrammable buttons.
Project Leonardo features a large circular base designed to sit on a surface, with a large joystick and buttons surrounding the circular layout. Users can pair two such controllers at once, change button positions, connect a regular DualSense remote as well, or even opt for larger buttons for greater convenience.
Reprogramming options include mapping a specific action to two different buttons, performing two actions on one button (eg R2 + L2), joystick orientation, and more depending on the user's needs. It also offers the possibility to create up to 3 different mapping profiles for instant selection depending on the game. Finally, there are also 4 AUX sockets for connecting external peripheral devices.
At the moment the price and release date are not known, as Project Leonardo is still in the development stage. There will probably be another update later in the year.
