In today’s competitive gaming landscape gamers are constantly looking for an advantage. Whether it’s using a modded gamepad to improve your firing speed or lowering your graphic fidelity to a minimum in order to improve your FPS, there’s very little a gamer isn’t willing to do to get that edge.
Well, a recently funded Kickstarter project, the Stinky Footboard gaming pedal, promises to offer you that edge. The pedal finished slightly over its goal of $75,000 with a grand total of $79,562 pledged overall.
Player can map inputs normally bound to their mouse or keyboard to any of the buttons offered on the pedal via the bundled software (as seen at the 1:30 mark). Silly name aside, it does seem to be a useful contraption for e Sport gamers, and will work with Windows 8, 7, Vista and XP.
As a fan of flight simulators, something like this could be essential for satisfying that itch of feeling as though I’m in a physical cockpit. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see until June when the final product is released with an MSRP of $119.
