Looks like Thanko has put its USB-powered ash tray goofiness behind it and created a peripheral that's actually useful, a stealthy USB foot switch that lets you switch applications quickly without jumping for those alt/tab keys. Now you can quickly jump away from all that porn and into something seemingly productive in a split second. The tricky accompanying software lets you customize its settings to your liking, so you can hide a current window, or hide every window except for one that you designate, such as something busy-looking like Microsoft Word, Excel or Outlook. The software is password protected so your secrets are safe. Includes a nice long USB cable and is available in Japan for $25. Now they just need to figure out how to make that foot switch invisible.
