“Stinky Footboard” PC Foot Controller Kickstarter Coming Soon
This may sound facetious, but I’m playing it straight — honest. You’re playing a game, right hand on your mouse, left hand hovering over your keyboard, manically hammering at various keys. Maybe you have some extra buttons on your mouse to give your keyboard hand a respite, but nonetheless, odds are that you’re sometimes taking your fingers off important keys in order to press secondary ones — like taking a finger off a movement key in order to swap to a specific weapon or throw a grenade. And yet, there are your feet, doing absolutely nothing of worth.
Stelulu Technologies is putting your feet to work with the Stinky Footboard PC Foot Controller. The controller will be available for sale in June for $119. Preorders can be placed in the coming days via their Kickstarter page, which will soon start its crowd funding. Visit their website for more details.
I had a friend who used a foot pedal while playing FPS games as his push-to-talk key for TeamSpeak and Ventrilo. He was a high-level player, and keeping his hands free was invaluable to him.
