A popular saying calls a father the first love of a daughter and the first hero of a son. Rory Steele, a former IT and math teacher, is another father figure to justify this statement.

Later, Steele also created a controller for his son, Corban, who, like his sister, suffers from a disability. This article is a throwback to the genius of Rory Steele and the Xbox Adaptive Controllers that made the customization possible.

Xbox Adaptive Controllers and eBay Made It Possible

The Xbox Adaptive Controller is a device specifically designed for people who cannot move independently. In fact, users can connect external devices such as switches, buttons, mounts and joysticks to further customize the adaptive controller.

Rory Steele ordered parts from eBay and customized an Xbox adaptive controller to meet Ava’s requirements. In fact, he did the same for Corban, allowing him to easily use a controller to play on his Nintendo Switch while in a wheelchair.

In addition, Steele recorded Ava and Corban’s reactions as he surprised them with controllers for viewing on the Internet. His reactions were simply priceless!

George Takei discovered video of Ava using the controller and shared it on Twitter yesterday. “The smile on his face says everything. What a wonderful father.” Read his post.

Below is video of Corban receiving his controller!

As expected, many fans reacted to George Takei’s post, all appreciating Steele’s tenacity.

What are Ava and Rory suffering from?

As it happens, Steele’s daughter, Ava, and her son, Corban, are both disabled that deprive them of free limb movement. Ava suffers from spastic paraplegia, a hereditary disorder that impairs her speech and movements. Corban also suffers from the same and both require a wheelchair to get through.

Due to the disorder, Ava and Korban cannot use traditional controllers effectively. His position inspired Steele to create a customized controller for his kids to make it easier for them to play games on their Nintendo Switch.
