No painting, using felt instead. Non slippery and warming ;)

What’s it for?

The Teensy++ has me thinking this must be something with a huge config file, which needs that board’s larger RAM. I mean, they’re pricey compared to regular Teensy 2. But maybe you just had one lying around. ;)

Always for gaming.

You are right, just reachable for me.

Is this for leaning in a game like Rainbow 6 Siege? I love to see the overlap between what were one tools created for accessibility and "DIY high performance" gaming. I purchased a footpedal from a retired piece of medical equipment, but I haven't gotten around to making it useful.

I mostly play CSGO or RTS games now, so I don't need additional buttons like I used to, but this is a really practical way to use cheap off the shelf parts and still get the spacing right.

I use it in HLL for
crouch, lie down , ping, sprint
for example. My friend uses it for "ping".

Real pedals are bad for digital actions. Slow and analog.
