The Stinky Footboard might seem to be some sort of futuristic hoverboard at first glance, but it really is not that forward looking, despite being a foot-based PC gaming input device which intends to smoothen your gaming flow. Don’t you think that this is going to be a rather niche device? I wonder how many folks would not mind lending their Stinky Footboard to their friends, since feet are not known to be the best smelling part of the body for some folks.
The Stinky Footboard hails from Stelulu Technology of Canada, and it has been touted to come in handy for PC games that feature complicated input schemes. For instance, World of Warcraft, any modern military shooter, as well as competitive strategy games such as League of Legends will require players to know plenty of keyboard commands (up to the dozens in some instances) before they become proficient at it, and the Stinky Footboard intends to help you manage those controls easier.
A quartet of Cherry MX key switches will be located under your toe, your heel, and on the sides of the board, where all you need to do is lean your foot back and forth, or rock your ankle from side to side in order to trigger the relevant switches. The Stinky Footboard will run on Windows 7 or Windows 8, and is connected to the computer via USB.
