STEALTHSWITCH II The original StealthSwitch was a “desktop cloaking device” that instantly hid applications when you triggered the palm-sized pedal with you foot, so that your boss wouldn’t know you were playing World of WarCraft or cooperating with the SEC. But one simple tweak – programmability – turned a clever gadget into an essential part of any gamer’s loadout.
The StealthSwitch II allows you to bind any keystroke to the footswitch, so you can use it to take screenshots, reload weapons, activate push-to-talk in VOIP simultaneously firing a weapon and holding a beer stein. It doesn’t interfere with your mouse and keyboard settings, doesn’t require software to work after initial programming (take it from PC to PC tucked in your waistband!), and you can even “slave” up to four more foot-switches for ultimate seven-controller gaming fu.
