Bcon | World's Most Competitive Gaming Wearable

Keep using mouse and keyboard as before and add an entirely new input channel! Do more at the same time and speed up your gaming. Handle even complex key bindings with a simple twitch of your foot.

Making use ot the broadly established HID (Human Interface Device) Protocol, the Bcon automatically works with all games and all software that support keyboard controls - no need for any driver installation.

Focus on WASD and your mouse and let the Bcon handle the rest!

Immerse yourself the way you want!
Immerse yourself the way you want!

From OBS, to 3D modeling, to all sorts of creative software. Bring efficiency and comfort into your professional life with a device that works with every established software out of the box.

The Bcon’s broad compatibility brings motion control even to your SmartTV or cell phone – imagine what you could do!

The Bcon's Dynamic Sensor System combines the results of the constant measurements within fractions of milliseconds to achieve optimal results in different situations.

The wearable recognizes four effortless moves: lift heel or lift toes (pitch), tilt right or tilt left (roll) and translates real-time measurements into precise input.

The device measures your movements at a velocity of 1,000 measurements per second and is capable to recognize changes at up to 2,000 degrees per second for responsiveness and accuracy when it matters most.The Bcon compensates for non-mono-directional movement patterns by ignoring small values on the alternative axes.

Seamlessly stall all actions triggered by the Bcon whenever you need it!

Allocate Pause to any keyboard key to temporarily prevent the Bcon from sending any command to your PC. This allows you to easily switch games and even leave your computer without removing the device. After your break just remain in a relaxed position and continue to game on!

The Bcon is designed for highly complex key bindings giving you up to 24 additional hotkeys or 4 key sequences of up to 6 keys each through the versatile configuration software.

Freely adjust the device’s sensitivity and decide when you want a command to be sent. Whether it´s just a quick press of a single hotkey or keeping multiple keys pressed - experience the full spectrum of your keyboard at a flick of your foot.

Chain up multiple keys to create powerful combos without any automation!

Each combo is created within the device’s firmware, achieved without automation scripts for authenticity and can be interrupted at any point to react to changing game contexts.

We’ve taken into account the unconscious movement, position shifting, and the natural flow of gaming.

To prevent the Bcon from triggering unwanted or unconscious commands (its hard to keep your feet still in the heat of the moment!) we have integrated a -5° to 5° protection zone on both the longitudinal and lateral axis. To keep up with your individual habit of fidgeting we additionally made this protection zone fully adjustable beyond the -5° to 5° range.

Freely change your sitting position!

The player can reset the zero point at any time and the Bcon will interpret movements according to its new spatial orientation. As gaming sessions tend to become long, feel free to stretch out, jump up, and change positions as necessary without losing functionality.

The Bcon clings magnetically and is both securely fastened and easily removed by hand. The socket’s elevated boundaries mechanically absorb centrifugal forces and protect the Bcon against falling off while in use. The socket possesses an attached webbing customizable in length to accommodate different types of usage. Barefoot naturally requires less length than using the Bcon with your shoes on.

The Bcon has been actively tested by gamers – even live on stream! The valuable feedback gathered went straight into the development process, making the Bcon a true gaming device.

No matter what life throws our way, we are appreciative that creativity, innovation, and tech can empower people to overcome situations and improve the quality of life for themselves as well as for others in similar or varying circumstances. The Bcon is a true aid for players unable to use standard peripherals - competitive gaming for all gamers!

Risks and challenges

Given that we have tested and tested again the various iterations of our prototypes, conceived and realized by engineers with years-long professional experience, we feel confident that we can re-produce the development on a wider scale, now that we have achieved the crowdfunding goal enabling us to start serial production.

We have a clear plan to execute on, but a major risk remains in the procurement of electronic parts. Their availability fluctuates, and they may be at least temporarily out of stock and require weeks or months to get. We will reserve all critical components as early as we come into possession of the funds from the campaign. Without the parts, obviously, our manufacturing partners cannot start their job.

Having said that, there remain all sorts of general risks in manufacturing, assembly and shipping, but we have calculated some leeway timewise, so that we are confident to serve all of you right before Christmas 2018.
