An Atlanta-based musician named Robb Dillon has invented a peculiar but high-tech computer peripheral, dubbed the SMASHmouse, that is more or less a computer mouse that is different in that it is designed to be operated by feet rather than hands.
This unique computer peripheral, which can be used in conjunction with both Windows and MacOS computers, takes the form of a foot pad that users can interact with by either rolling their ankle or by stomping either side of the pad for the equivalent of conventional left-clicking and right-clicking.
Currently the subject of a crowdfunding campaign over on Kickstarter, the $80 SMASHmouse is targeted towards musicians who want to follow along with online tutorials and play their instrument without having to pause playing in order to operate their computer mouse.
