Fragpedal Deluxe Controls

Online shop ThinkGeek today began stocking the Fragpedal Deluxe, a pair of USB-attached controllers that are built as companions for gamers or any computer user who needs extra controls without removing their hands from the mouse and keyboard. Each panel carries two toughened rubber buttons that can be programmed in multiple ways depending on the user's preferences: in addition to a straightforward button press, the buttons can be set to only issue a command when released, to send alternating commands, or even to respond to multiple short taps as would a mouse. A shift button can also change three of the buttons to handle alternate functions.

Though the Fragpedal includes a utility to fine-tune controls, ThinkGeek is quick to add that the controller is designed to work without drivers and will work in Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows. It ships as of today for $70.
