3D Printed WiiMote Mod for People With Physical Disabilities

I was contacted by someone about a controller modification. Again, the complaint was about those pesky triggers. It seems like there is a complaint about triggers every day! I tried to think of the simplest print that would solve the problem. I came up with this little hinged bit that just rocks back and pushes the trigger.

Ideally I’d redesign this for a longer life. The fatigue on the hinge part is going to cause it to snap after some use. Unfortunately, I don’t have the time right now so I suggest printing several of these at a time and just keeping spares.

You can download the files here if you want to print your own!
