Let your tootsies do the typing

I want to put at least four keys under the computer that let my feet take some of the typing load off my hands. That reduces the frequency of carpal tunnel syndrom on the hands, but it would also create a whole new industry, by creating entirely new and unknown afflictions of the ankles due to typing with your feet! Think of all the jobs it would create...research grants to be landed...names of these maladies to be come up with... (a job for us!)

       My left pinky gets tired from doing all the Ctrl and Shift work. I would love to have those as foot pedals.

       We've done this before, see "Foot Controlled Computer" right here in this category. You'll also find this is baked, look at the links on that idea, and on the other idea I linked.

       Yup, well baked. I was using a computer with Korg foot pedals yesterday (they were set up for left and right mouse click).
