Stinky Footboard Lets You control Games with Your Feet
The Stinky Footboard puts your feet into PC gaming action.
Do you need better performance from your game? Why not get your feet involved?
A startup called Stelulu has announced a new peripheral that will allow you to use your feet for with certain PC games. Called the Stinky Footboard, it's used in conjunction with a PC mouse and keyboard, letting you assign secondary duties on a game to your feet.
Some of the functions that the Footboard can be used for include changing guns and throwing grenades in first-person shooters; increasing actions per minute in real-time strategy games; and accessing additional functionality for massive multiplayer online (MMO) players.
Stelulu plans to run a Kickstarter campaign in order to gain funding for the Stinky Footboard, and will have it available for display and testing this weekend at the forthcoming Penny Arcade Expo East event in Boston.
The Stinky Footboard is currently slated for a release in June, and will be compatible with many PC systems, including Windows 7, 8, Vista and XP. Pricing is slated to be around $120.
Let's just hope your gaming skills don't stink as much as your feet.
