Elgato unveiled its latest gadget aimed at streamers, the Stream Deck Pedal. The device features three programmable pedals that can be used for a variety of functions and according to Elgato “it is built to take a stomping without budging”.
Designed to be placed under the desk, it is activated by pressing the foot to the left, center or center.
The idea is that streamers can continue to keep their hands on the game controller or keyboard while taking advantage of the pedal functions, without distractions or interruptions. It can be configured with the Steam Deck application to use different functions depending on the active application.
The Stream Deck Pedal also has the potential to provide disabled streamers with an alternative input system.
Other usage examples include multiple actions to take screenshots, open a target folder, or start Twitter to quickly share media files with a single tap of the foot.
The system will also come with a plug-in which makes it compatible with Discord.
