In September, we reported on Super Smash Bros. Melee player Aziz “Hax” Al-yani, and his hand injury. As was reported then, he has been suffering from a calcified flexor carpi ulnaris in his forearm, and it has been a long road back since.
Hax, however, has refused to give up. Having found a surgeon that would operate on his wrist, Al-yani has made adjustments to alleviate the strain placed from the GameCube controller for Smash players. His most notable adjustment has been to not only adopt the Smash Box, but contribute to the development of the controller.
However, unhappy with the pace of development of the Smash Box, he has since forked the project into his “B0XX” project, with the help of engineers from Rutgers University.
