Computer Footpedal for Concurrent Food and Paper Consumption

I converted a footpedal (from an ultrasonic machine) to a computer joystick so I can navigate webpages and pdf without touching keyboard and mouse while I eat. The footpedal connects to a Cypress PSoC 5LP dev board, which emulates a USB HID joystick. An AutoHotKey script monitors the joystick and triggers the mouse and keyboard event.
