HoboLoco(TM) is a game controller operated with two feet that can replace or augment a keyboard, mouse or gamepad for interacting with a video game, virtual reality, or remotely operated robots. The invention is covered by 2 U.S. utility patents and one each from Japan and China.
Although it was invented to provide an alternative for locomotion with immersive virtual reality in mind, our device has many more applications. For those veterans and others who have lost use of their hands, but can flex their feet, the device enables them to engage in video games otherwise inaccessible to them. And there's more ... just as organists and drivers use their feet in addition to their hands, we believe HoboLoco will become an essential tool for all gamers who want to enhance their speed and gaming experience.
You'd be crazy to ask a drummer to play their instruments without using their feet and we just assume this was always the case, but it wasn't until hi-hats and spring-loaded bass pedals were invented. But, if you ask a gamer why they haven't been using their feet when they are engaging in play, they'd probably give you a quizzical look. Why? We think it is because a useful device didn't exist. HoboLoco is about to change that. We are providing tools to take gaming to the next level.
