Rocky Stoutenburgh, a.k.a. RockyNoHands, has just made history yet again. The pro gamer was previously inducted into the Guinness World Records 2020 and Guinness World Records 2020 Gamer’s Edition, earning two different records in Fortnite while using a mouth-operated joystick. Now, according to a report from TheGamer, RockyNoHands has become the first quadriplegic gamer to be signed to a professional esports organization.
Injured in a motorcycle accident, Alvaro Blanco is now able to play video games with something called a Quadstick.
After a motorcycle accident injured his spinal cord, Alvaro Blanco was no longer able to use his hands and feet to control his favorite racing game — but that wasn’t about to stop him from playing. Now, Alvaro uses a special controller known as a Quadstick to play GT Sport using only his mouth.
The QuadStick has a joystick, four sip & puff sensors, a lip position sensor, and a push switch, connected to a 32 bit ARM processor that converts the sensor inputs into USB and Bluetooth signals for host devices.
