Since the launch of the AbleGamers Accessibility Arcade in October 2012, Life Labs sought out ways to partner with the AbleGamers Foundation to bring accessible gaming to UCP affiliates and others. The result was a mobile gaming station that contains all of the necessary ingredients for fun, social and cognitive stimulation: an easily assembled rollable cabinet containing a flat-screen TV, Microsoft Xbox gaming station, accessible gaming controllers, games and instructions.
The mobile gaming station will be designed with plug-and-play functionality and operate over either WiFi or ethernet connection for networked gameplay.
Life Labs already has a major UCP affiliate interested in several of these mobile gaming stations and is excited to be able to offer the station to the general public once a prototype is completed. The tentative timeline to complete the first prototype is Spring 2013.
