For a while now, I have been toying with the idea of modifying a transcriber foot pedal into a programmable HID device. This could be useful for those complicated keyboard macros , Push to Talk  or even for a more natural feel in racing type games, although not with proportional control.
Your feet are generally wasted whilst sat at the computer, other than tapping to a beat. With a whole industry and trend built from standing desks and the health issues in the media regarding sitting for hours at a time, maybe it’s time to get a free leg exercise.
Meet the Olympus RS-24 foot pedal… sporting three proprietary software driven functions, rewind, fast forward and listen, all your secretary could ever dream of.
