Customize Your Foot-Powered Mouse on the New 3dRudder Dashboard
February 7, 2017 (NEW YORK, NY) – The 3dRudder foot-powered motion controller, for virtual reality visualization, gaming, and navigation in 3D environments, now includes a user-friendly dashboard that allows for easy setup and customization for three different modes of use – including Mouse mode.
Foot power is a logical solution for any person who wants hands-free functionality when browsing the web, working with software or navigating through virtual reality. As a foot-controlled computer mouse, 3dRudder frees your hands to talk on the phone, take notes, eat a sandwich or extend your productivity by getting work done faster and more efficiently.
Mouse mode provides comfortable computer accessibility for individuals with carpal tunnel or repetitive motion syndromes or a disability that affects mobility of the upper limbs. Foot-power is as intuitive as walking or driving a car; the learning curve is fast.
Easy to use. Easy to customize.
Simply download the free 3dRudder dashboard and follow the instructions to customize functions for your 3dRudder. Add your favorite games and set your preferences for movement using 3dRudder. Receive notifications for free software updates. Switch between the different modes with just a few clicks:
Mouse mode – For use with most Windows-based software and web browsing with Windows 8 or 10. Left foot = left click, right foot = right click. Tweak the parameters for speed, scrolling and other mouse functions. Foot-powered Mouse mode is easy to learn and ideal for people with hand pain from arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome and for individuals with disabilities affecting mobility of the upper limbs. In an office environment, 3dRudder enables multitasking and efficiency for people who log a lot of computer time. Cortana shortcut, the Windows-based voice integration system, can be enabled on 3dRudder.
Keyboard mode – Most commonly used to configure video games with as many as eight keys; adjust sensitivity (acceleration, etc.); assign different keyboard strokes for individual games; compatible with keyboard-supported PC games, such as Steep, World of Tanks, Minecraft and more.
Standard 3dRudder mode – Use 3dRudder as a joystick to navigate in Google Earth or travel in Flight Simulator. Standard mode also enables intuitive motion in VR games and applications, leaving hands free to grab, shoot, pull or perform other functions.
