One of the coolest aspects of PC gaming is that you can kinda do anything you want on the platform. Before games got mouselook working proper, a joystick was still a fixture on three desks in my house. Take crazy peripherals and add in some crowd-funding and what do you get? Something like the Stinky Footboard, of course.
So what is it? It’s a footboard, obviously. When you plug it into your PC, it’ll see it as a keyboard and you can map each of the Stinky’s four (customizably) spring-boarded boxes to suit whatever functionality you want. Far more functional than a Rock Band foot pedal, you could map all of your DOTA 2 abilities to your foot. That’s crazy! What if you mapped your jump button to it? That’s also madness! It’s not that I don’t play PC games, because I definitely do, but if I had a single game I played often so I wasn’t constantly setting up new profiles, I’d be totally into this.
Stinky just completed their successful Kickstarter and boards will start shipping soon.
