Thank Thanko for thinking with their feet and releasing a USB pedal board.

Are you like most of us and despise moving your pinky finger over an inch to hit the Enter key on your keyboard? I know, its quite stressful on your poor finger and frustrating when you miss and hit the “Quotation” key.

Well, what if I were to tell you, that instead of using your pinky finger for the Enter key, you can use your foot.

Thanko, a company based out of Tokyo, has released a 3-pedal unit that allows you to assign a key on your keyboard to each pedal. Ultimate laziness?, or incredibly amazing time-saver?

This current product is compatible with Windows XP, 7, and Vista.

I’m not one for playing too many games on my computer, but I will assume that these pedals are geared more towards the gamer, especially those who play online. I’m sure there has been numerous occasions where you are in deep battle in a land far far away, planning and strategizing your attack, when all of a sudden you get this sudden thirst that can only be quenched by the lemonade sitting next to your monitor. You don’t want to take your left hand off the keyboard as you need the spacebar for any sudden attack. Well now, just assign the spacebar to one of the pedals, use your left hand to quickly grab that lemonade, quench your thirst while at the same time defending yourself, only using your right foot, put down that lemonade and jump right back into action and make a mental note to send a quick thank you email to Thanko.
