The pads are triggered when their orange surface gets pressed.
The pads behave as an HID device, emulating press/release of a subset of keys ('1', '2', '3', '4', '5'). A pressure on a pad generates a KEY DOWN event. While in this state, it emits a blast of red flashing light. A KEY UP event is then generated when the initial pressure is removed.
The pads react quickly to pressure. Even if it's possible to trigger them with a hand, the load needed on the wrist (approx 2kg) makes them more suitable to be controlled by foot.
The lights flash at approx. 15Hz and they cannot be programmed
Unità Zero pads will be laid out on a single row as shown:
The numbers relate each pad to a specific key binding. The pads are all alike, same color, same shape. Due to the number of games that reference the pads as numbers, we'll add the relative key numbers onto each pad (1-5).
An approximate distance between each pad is 40cm (15in). It is possible for a single player to easily trigger two pads.
Just follow the instructions given on the EGP site.
