Foot Controlled Feed-Reading By Beatmania Controller

There are some “Foot Mouse” products for people suffering from tendonitis or multitasking workers who are serious on his/her work efficiency, but the needs are not so high and eventually those products are rather more expensive than regular mice.
tyoro [J] from Kyoto sparked the idea to reuse the broadly available cheap gaming device for RSS reader manoeuvre [J].
For demonstration, he manipulated the “Beatmania Controller” with his hands, but he uses it with his feet in reality.

He assigns a DJ turntable to “Next” and “Prev”, 5 keys to main short cut keys on the Japanese favourite feed reader, livedoor Reader [ENG].
“Turntable’s analogue touch supports your intended manipulation well and realize much more articles to be read in the same time”, as he wrote.
