We have numerous Stinky Footboards out in the field with all type of gamers, they've been walked on, stomped on, jumped on, dropped from desks and none have stopped working. We even ran over one with an SUV 6 times which we demonstrated at PAX EAST and it’s fully functioning. The only way to identify it from the others is by the stickers we placed on the top plate and a few scuffs underneath! We’re very confident that this thing will last a long time. We’re using a central stainless bearing, T6 hardened aluminum top plate, an internal steel U-channel, Cherry MX blue switches (good for 50 million actions) and everything is bolted together…no glue anywhere! Surprisingly it doesn't get really grimy…but you can clean it with soap and a damp cloth without worry. The electronics are located on the bottom plate and protected by the overlapping top plate.
We’re going to offer a 1 year Limited warranty on the board.
