Ha! I think we are onto something here. One of those el-piano pedals or
some old guitar effect pedal? A bluetooth wireless pedal? I mean a whole
board of those pedals, like guitar pedal boards. Imagine how many
modifiers we could have: ctrl, alt, hyper, super, duper ... maybe all on
just one pedal with tactile levels, and then add many pedals to it. I
think we have a product here :).

That is not a bad idea at all :). I am not sure how much eye-tracking
would this old laptop be able to process and what would happen when I
look elsewhere though. But maybe it is possible to make it smart enough?

I have also bound those, in my case C-v [lrud] for left right up and
down, but I think is as awkward as C-v o. Maybe I'll try vim shortcuts
for a while, but I see on Reddit people are switching from evil anyway.

Is there two thumb modifier for my hands? Feels I would need some.
