Scythe USB Single Foot Switch
Product Code: SC-USB1FOOTSWITCH
I need more buttons! Have you ever had that thought before? Are you tired of trying to remember the key combination for that feature in Excel, Photoshop, Lightroom or AutoCAD? Perhaps you're frustrated with reaching for an awkwardly placed keyboard button whilst fighting your way out of an ambush, making the most of a gap between cars on the speedway, or turning and burning your way through a dogfight in your favourite flight sim? Spreadsheets, creative design and game titles are notorious for requiring large numbers of key commands, and the burden of remembering them all is placed on the user. Not anymore! With Scythe's USB foot switches, you're limited only by your imagination and no longer by a traditional mouse, keyboard, joystick or racing wheel layout. This USB foot switch is used as an additional input device for personal computers and operates as a human interface device, so it does not require the installation of drivers with supported operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows 2000 and above. You can freely assign the foot switch to any command you'd normally execute with a key press or button, so this product can do just about anything you'd want it to. As such, this foot switch from Scythe could bring about a new era in productivity for you! Moving some of the commands you'd normally accomplish with your hands to your feet, you now have access to a much wider spectrum of commands and key presses, all with just a small movement of your foot. Working in much the same way as the accelerator in your car, the Scythe foot switches offer a convenient, comfortable and intuitive method of adding more buttons and increasing interactivity with your system - it may even assist your posture during those long hours of design, manipulation or gaming! An added bonus gained by moving some tasks you'd normally accomplish with another input device like your mouse is a reduction in repetitive stress strain caused by continual usage. Ruggedized for operations with your feet and sturdily constructed, the combination of device weight and the included feet also ensures this foot switch will stay where it is placed and won't move during operations. The rubber pad on the top of the foot switch will also ensure your foot won't slip off the pedals when you're working furiously, or mashing the pedals during game play. The pedals also have enough resistance so that you can rest your foot on the switch without continuously pressing a button you didn't mean to, adding further to convenience. Connecting to your PC via a spare USB port, this Scythe foot switch has a cable length of 180cm and a switch life of one million presses & suits Microsoft operating systems from Windows 2000 onwards, including XP, Vista and Seven.
