Airturn Launches Silent Foot Switch for its iPad Page Turner

Boulder, CO (PRWEB) June 07, 2011

AirTurn, Inc. is introducing the ATFS-2, a new silent foot switch designed to be the quietest consumer foot switch on the market today, as a companion to its BT-105 Bluetooth hands free page turner for the iPad and Bluetooth-equipped Mac and PC computers. The ATFS-2 features a proprietary “mechanism free” design, where there are no moving parts aside from the molded hinge. The switch is actuated with a rare earth neodymium magnet and a rhodium reed switch, both of which are embedded within the body of the foot switch. Manufactured in Colorado, the ATFS-2 is injection molded with a unique blend of high strength plastics, which makes the foot switch virtually indestructible.

“When I first started using computers as digital sheet music readers 10 years ago, I fell in love with the idea of being able to carry my entire library in a single device and marking up my music with digital ink,” says Hugh Sung, VP and Co-Founder of AirTurn, Inc. “The hardest part of putting this digital system together was finding a way to turn the pages without having to press a button with my hand, which I really wanted to keep on my piano while I played. I tried using various programmable foot switches, but they were all difficult and clunky to use. My dream page turning foot switch would need 3 things: it would have to be easy to use, it would have to be wireless (since I hated the look of dangling cables), and most importantly, it would need to be perfectly silent, since I had to turn pages in recording sessions and classical music concert halls. I think we’ve come up with a home run page turning pedal system for the iPad and Bluetooth-equipped computers that is easy to use, wireless with the latest Bluetooth technology, and hands down the most silent foot switch on the consumer market today.”

Up to two ATFS-2 foot switches can be connected to the AirTurn BT-105 Bluetooth page turner to trigger forwards and backwards page turns. The BT-105 features fast, easy pairing with devices like the iPad, long rechargeable battery life, and compatibility with a wide variety of iPad apps and most document and presentation programs for the Mac and PC.
