Being able to multitask is in demand I constantly – if you don’t believe me, look at how many cores modern CPUs have – but unfortunately for modern day humans, we only have two hands. It’s atrocious what we have to put up with, for two hands can simply not accomplish enough tasks at once. Luckily for us, we have two other limbs that are usually going to waste while sat at our computer – our feet.
Thank goodness, then, for the 3dRudder foot-powered mouse, designed for use navigating either 3D computer-aided designs (CADs) or virtual reality (VR) content.
We’ve already seen the 3dRudder in action when used with Robo Recall, the Unreal Engine 4 VR first person shooter from Epic Games. Using the 3dRudder you can move around the environment with your feet, entirely freeing up your hands for shooting down foes.
Now 3dRudder have confirmed that their unique foot-mouse will be available to use with 3D design applications, such as Rhino 3D.
Combine virtual reality design, with Rhino 3D and the 3dRudder foot-mouse and you’ve got yourself an excellent virtual space to do all of your work in – all of which can be navigated and moved around from the comfort of your desk – pretty impressive.
3dRudder has released a video of the foot-mouse in action alongside Rhino 3D – you can take a look below.
If you owna 3dRudder mouse, the plugin costs $100, or you can buy the 3dRudder CAD Edition for $279.
