Game With Your Feet With Ben Heck's Homemade Foot Pedals

by Jeff Marchiafava on Apr 15, 2014 at 01:20 PM

Professional modder/mad scientist Ben Heck has a new instructional video that details how to make your own foot pedals for PC gaming.

In the video below, Heck walks viewers through his technique for creating a pair of two-stage foot pedals, which essentially gives players four more buttons at their disposal without needing to take their hands off of their WASD keys and mouse. First, Heck walks players through the required code and electronic parts he's using. In the second half of the video, Heck builds the actual pedals, using mostly 3D printed parts. He also gets a bit loopy and tries his hand at some Chris Hemsworth and Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonations. At the end of the video, Heck tests the new pedals in Titanfall.

For more of Ben Heck's insane inventions, read our interview where he discusses his ultimate combo gaming system.
