If you want to make one.  You need a potentiometer of the right value and a pedal hooked to a gear, pulley or some other method to turn the pot when you press down on the pedal.   Then you need some way to interface the pot to the computer.

I made rudder pedals for my flight sim. a couple of years ago.  I turned a know into a pulley buy turning a groove in it and the pedals rotated the knob.  The interface was thru a game controller plug that plugged into the back of my flight stick.

Google it and I'm sure you'll find lots of info.

If you were asking how to make one, I can't help you there. If you were thinking about posting an instructable, go for it. ( See Nacho's answer. )
