To simplify technology so that people of all abilities are able to interact with the world on their own terms.



Xogo is a hardware and software platform that enables users to interact with consumer technology in ways that works for them. Independent of brand and function, personal input devices can be adapted to generate tailored controls for gaming consoles, media devices, smart homes, toys, and more.

This allows people with disabilities to use assistive devices or standard USB, Bluetooth, WiFi, and 3.5mm jack devices to connect to standard consumer technology in ways that were previously inaccessible due to physical limitations. Converting a wheelchair joystick into a controller for a TV might not be a typical user interface, but solutions like these drastically change the lives of our users.

Independent of their brand and function, Xogo can use all forms of technology together in the way that best fits every user’s lifestyle and needs. This helps us reach a broad range of users:

  • People with disabilities who aren’t able to use technology to its fullest capacity because of physical or other limitations
  • Our parents and grandparents who may be confused because of a lack of tech familiarity
  • The rest of us who are busy people who are fed up with a confusing array of ecosystems that don’t allow us to use devices easily or properly because of incompatibilities and poor user experiences



Bradley is an eleven-year-old kid who not only faces the common challenges of middle school, but also manages the physical limitations of cerebral palsy. He maintains a social circle, tackles hard math problems, and is trying to figure out who he wants to be. Playing video games and using technology shouldn’t be yet another challenge.

Bradley’s family gave him his Xogo as a Christmas present. Right now, Bradley uses his Xogo to play video games with his twin sister on a level playing field. As he grows up, Xogo will be there to foster his growing independence. He’ll be able to use it to flip through channels on the TV, surf the web, and maybe even buy a suit on the internet for his first job interview!
