I'm not sure what I would use it for, but honestly, I can see myself getting one. One of the triple versions, that is. I just don't know why.

Few years ago...when I've had long hair and electric guitar, I bought cheap (3$) usb keyboard with big space button. Removed all other buttons and used it as guitar effect switch for Guitar FX software. That was so Getto!

I'll get one of these for work. My boss can probably spot me scrambling to Alt-Tab or click away from what page I'm reading - but they wont see me quietly tap this with my foot to switch back to the spreadsheet.

Also, this could be useful for FPS games. Assign a different weapon to each peddle.

Let me see if I get it straight... 3 buttons of a mouse for $59.00 ? :laugh:
Is it at least like joystick pedals ? I guess not, right ?

This would be pretty cool to act as a crouch (spelling?) and jump for FPS. I always have crouch enabled only as long as the button is pressed, and for long times it can hurt my finger.

You missed my point. Price is probably right for it. But is it useful at all ?
It must be, for a guy or two......

Only thing usefull I could think of is for a DAW.
Punching in an out for overdubs, or for adding or changing effects while recording.

No potentiometers needed, just on off. Tap on to overdud tap off too stop. As for effects, all parameters already loaded in Cubebase, Calkwalk, just easier to turn them on or off with your foot in real time than to "Fix it in the Mix". Obviously no real wah pedal, but could turn on a comb filter.
Hell of a lot cheaper than buying the switches that already exist for this purpose.

Peace.....
