Nice article. I was interested in the foot pedal keyboard controls, after seeing similar items as gaming devices. When I followed the link provided to Bilbo Innovations, I reached a vintage 1990's website. I noticed there's no pricing information. Clicking Order shows a very simple page with: This product is D I S C O N T I N U E D A quick Google search was ambiguous with results for musical keyboard (like a piano) pedals also, but I did find this: http://www.fentek-ind.com/FootPedal.htm Hardly the only one, just the first that I found, and they look to be of fair quality. Not an endorsement.
