Too lazy to move your foot to the brake pedal during a traffic stop? There is good news, a Japanese inventor just came up with an all-in one pedal for both gas and brake controls. Well, this invention is actually to safe your life in an emergency situation than apply to your laziness.
Have you ever been in an emergency situation where you got panic and hit the gas pedal instead of you brake pedal? Mr. Masuyuki Naruse has developed an all-in one pedal solution that should eliminate this panic mishap. The one pedal solution system consists of an accelerator operated by pivoting your right foot clockwise to push the accelerator lever. And while the brakes are operated by pushing down the pedal normally. Look at the diagram above for a better clarification.
As you can imagine this is not very ergonomic. Your right foot is always pivoting to a 60-degree angle to press the acceleration lever. Over an extended period of time your foot would become tired very quickly. And another ergonomic issue is that the muscle in the foot is not meant for lateral precision and control.
Well, kudos for the invention, but it is not ergonomic wise.
