Glasgow-based looperEYE LTD has launched a Kickstarter campaign for the looperEYE looper pedal, which the manufacturer touts as offering the flexibility and power of a software solution in a portable and easy-to-use stompbox format.

Interestingly, the pedal features no buttons or footswitches, and is fully controllable via an integrated camera, which uses state-of-the-art image processing to access a user-configured bank of virtual buttons. The user 'presses' the virtual buttons via his or her foot, with the camera tracking foot movement.
