One more (I can’t resist) step toward full body interfaces. Great idea for many reasons and situations and as an alternative to keyboards, mouse, joystick, etc.

“When it comes to controlling your favorite PC title, you’ve got a few options. There’s a mouse. There’s a keyboard. There’s a control pad and the joystick. Now, there’s one more option apparently. Keith McMillen Instruments (KMI) announced today the SoftStep KeyWorx multi-touch foot controller, the world’s first foot controlled digital interface. Available for Mac and Windows, this controller sits on the floor. The company claims that it has multiple uses for gamers, video editors, programmers, data entry professionals, disabled people, repetitive stress syndrome sufferers, etc. It’s both pressure and location sensitive, USB-powered, and contains ten fully customizable keys that remember up to 100 sets of commands for repetitive tasks.”
