PaBlo is a one-handed video game controller designed for left-handed and right-handed users. The ergonomic design allows for gamers to play PC games without compromising on the comfort or the functionality of standard controllers. The device was designed with one-handed accessibility at the forefront of the design. Whether the user has a broken wrist or is an amputee, as long as the user has one fully functioning hand, they can use PaBlo.

PaBlo is designed for a wide range of games such as Fighting, RPG, and Platformer. The unique placement of the bottom analog stick allows easy control of the camera in first-person shooters (FPS) and 3rd person action games without compromising on playability. A custom setup can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars, which is cost-prohibitive to new players, and hobbyists. The controller is designed to be sold at or less than an average $70 controller. PaBlo is an accessible controller for any gamer who doesn't want to compromise on comfort or playability or break the bank.
