For the record, I do not recall putting in so many exclamation points when I wrote this notice. I think the MeetUp template adds them.


I super hate all those exclamations! They look sort of dumb!


Anyway, thanks for the quick RSVPs already, I’m looking forward to seeing y’all.

About Footgaming and Judy Shasek: Judy is a Bend resident who has invented a very cool device that can replace a regular computer mouse with a foot operated mouse, for gamers. Judy has the patent, and has struck a deal with the Dance Dance Revolution folks, who will incorporate the foot mouse into their packaging as an option for players. Her goal is to help get children and adults up and moving. Judy is an educator and innovator, who’s worked with top fitness researchers to incorporate physical activity into computer gaming and education. She's working with all kinds of interesting folks throughout the country, and is a real mover and shaker.

"FootGaming™ is an energy-powered way to interact with a PC—playing casual games, using various software and tying physical activity via a new type of computer peripheral, the FootPOWR™ pad. There have been many types of user interface devices that get one moving—i.e., a dance platform lets us play games like DDR and game controllers like Wii FIT provide wonderful exercise.

FootGaming is different. Rather than designing an “exergame” controller for specific games,
FootGaming uses the FootPOWR™ pad with thousands of existing casual games and educational software. Any game that is played with a “mouse” or a few keyboard strokes is easily played with the FootPOWR pad."
