Foot-Controlling Your Keyboard
For people who complain they have only two hands, Keith McMillen Instruments has a solution for you. The Berkeley, Calif.-based company has rolled out KeyWorx, software coupled with a controller called SoftStep, a keyboard that controls your computer with your feet.
The device helps people avoid extra shift-clicks or the finger contortions that go with some commands and foreign language characters. But more exciting is that the foot-controlled keys may be a way for amputees and people with repetitive stress injuries to get fuller use of their computers.
And it looks like an awful lot of fun.
