The PageFlip Firefly Bluetooth USB Pedal is a wireless Bluetooth and USB pedal, featuring five preset modes, a 200 hour battery life, and dimensions of 172 x 147 x 35mm. The PageFlip Firefly is a wireless Bluetooth/USB pedal designed to meet the needs of musicians and people with disabilities who struggle with the challenge and inconvenience of page turning. The Firefly is PageFlip's newest premium pedal. It takes PageFlip's popular Cicada pedal and incorporates a whole set of features: illuminated pedals, programmable pedal modes, independently programmed external pedals, longer inactivity period before entering sleep mode, wireless and wired connectivity options, ergonomic design, and more heft for rugged use.
PageFlip Firefly works exclusively with digital documents, web pages, and image collections on any Windows, Mac, or Linux computer. It even works with iPads and Android tablets under select apps that accept keyboard commands. By simply tapping the dual pedal of the PageFlip Firefly, the digital content can now be flipped or scrolled in either the forward or reverse directions for convenient hands-free reading. People with disabilities can easily connect their favourite external switch to the PageFlip Firefly to trigger page turns. Musicians may like to tap the PageFlip Firefly, or a connected external pedal, with their foot rather than take their hands (and their focus) off their instruments.
The PageFlip Firefly emulates a standard keyboard and works with any software that uses keyboard strokes to navigate through digital files. For added versatility, the user may select among five modes for the dual pedals: PageUp/PageDown, Left/Right arrow, Up/Down arrow, Left/Right mouse click, and Space/Enter. Changing modes is as simple as pressing a button. The Firefly now offers the user the option to reprogram the five preset modes so that each pedal can now be transmit any desired key press or hotkey function.
