There are tons of switches (a.k.a. buttons that can be placed just about anywhere) on the market. You can find switches for a variety of ways to play, including: light touch, rigid, and even ones called “twitch switches,” which can be placed on a muscle such as your calf or eyebrows. You’ll want to do some research to ensure you are buying ones that will work best for you.
|Light Touch Buttons:||Sensitive, light-pressure buttons with a 12 mm height that can be activated with low force. |
|Variable Buttons:||Pressure-sensitive triggers can function like gas pedals, ideal for racing games or other applications. Force tune them for optimum control and comfort.|
|Small Buttons:||Approximately 1.4” buttons, built with mechanical switches, offer durable and consistent actuation. Low height allows for easy and quick presses.|
|Large Buttons:||Approximately 2.5” buttons built with mechanical switches are reinforced with stabilizer bars for consistent actuation across the full surface.|
If you need something different, like a mouth switch or sip and puff switch, EnableMart has a variety of switches that range in size, touch requirements, and function. Make sure that any switches you purchase uses a 3.5mm jack. Unfortunately, many of these switches are very pricey, but it’s a great place to start. Xbox also has a forum on what external devices work with the XAC.
