FREQUENTLY ASKED

QUESTIONS

We are currently running a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Please have a look here and help us send the Bcon into serial production.

On our campaign site at Kickstarter you can purchase the Bcon at highly discounted rates – only for a short time. You find the different price tiers here.

Its dimensions are approx. 63 x 50 x 18 millimeters which corresponds to approx. 2.5 x 2.0 x 0.7 inches. The prototype weighs less than 40 grams or a tenth of a pound, the socket less than 30 grams or 1 ounce. It’s equipped size on the foot including socket amounts to approx. 82 x 60 x 25 millimeters or 3.2 x 2.4 x 1.0 inches, weighing currently 62 grams or 2.2 ounces.

The fully-charged Bcon should last a minimum of 6 hours of non-stop gaming,but can even be recharged whilst in use.

The latency of the Bcon is comparable to any conventional Bluetooth keyboard.

No, the Bcon connects exclusively via Bluetooth. The Micro USB port (USB 2.0 Micro-B) at the side of the Bcon serves purely to recharge power; the cable does not establish a data connection to the PC.

Yes, even whilst securely fastened in the socket, the Bcon can be recharged via USB.

All PC games, which support keyboard commands!

Yes. All of them. Just like that. There’s no need to integrate an SDK or such by the developer of the game before or after.

Absolutely! The Bcon is pure-play additional. Regardless of its usage, you are free to continue using your preferred devices and key bindings in parallel.

Yes, that’s possible. The only limiting factor (other than your own extremities) is the number of parallel Bluetooth connections that your PC supports.

No, not as-is. In that case you’d first need to buy a Bluetooth dongle somewhere at retail for a few bucks.

Well, the Bcon works directly when paired and connected via Bluetooth with your PC.
In that sense, no need to – it’s truly plug-and-play. Yet, we are providing a specific configuration software which allows the gamer to map and customize his ownbindings. We strongly advise to make use of this piece of software.

There’s a pause function to temporarily block off all inputs. In addition, you are free to tailor the sensitivity of the Bcon to your own liking with the help of the configuration software. This way, you are in control of your own legspace, deciding when to fire off a command – or not yet.

As when driving a car, you can still move your feet to some degree. Depending on your self-selected configuration, any given movement triggers a command or not. We call it “Protection Zone” against unintended key strokes by fidgeting. With some practice you will soon find yourself utilizing the Bcon subconsciously similarly to using your feet when driving a car or playing the piano with pedals.

The Bcon is put on the instep of the foot with the help of a physical socket. By the way, it’s up to you to use it with the left foot or the right foot. Then the mount is strapped below around your foot with a mildly elastic band with Velcro. The entire process takes only a few seconds. Removal is even faster than.

That’s up to you. Use it with shoes, socks or without – in winter the use of stockings is recommended, though!

The Bcon recognizes its spatial orientation, regardless of whether equipped at the foot or fitted to your head. Originally designed for the foot, it’s purpose is to keep the hands free for gaming with mouse and keyboard.

That hasn’t happed to our testers yet. No such thing should happen to you, either, when you fasten the Bcon well – hey, not tooo fast, though!

Well, it’s a gaming device, isn’t it?! You don’t need to run, jump or dance around. Just remain seated as you wish and simply move your foot a little bit. You can even change your sitting position freely along the way. Nobody ever called that exhausting so far.

Well, experimentally the Bcon works with consoles, but we are currently neither providing support for it nor does the configuration software run elsewhere than on Windows® PC, optimized for Windows® 10 OS.

Well, the Bcon works on Mac OS, but our configuration software is currently supporting Windows® only, being optimized for Windows® 10 OS.

No, as most electric devices the Bcon is not water-proof – plop, plop, RIP.

We plan to start pre-sales in early 2018. Sign-up on our website to get a head’s on on the release dates and substantial introductory price discounts.

Currently, we are in the midst of optimization which will have an impact on the final price. Thus, nothing is decided yet, but we are aiming for the range of a wireless gaming mouse.
