Wooting with analog keyboards is already a few years old. It all started with the Kickstarter campaign of Wooting One, and now continues with Wooting Two, of course, but the most interesting thing may be the design of a separate key that will start selling to third parties, and thanks to which the analog keys could start to change the way the industry plays. These switches differ from the conventional ones because they detect several levels of pressure. The normal keys, whether membrane, optical or mechanical, only register one “on” position when pressed and one of “off” when lifting the finger. In the case of the analog keys, the press resembles that of the triggers of a current command. In this way, we have the possibility to better define the speed, for example, of our car in a driving title.
The Wooting One and Two use the Flaretech switches, which were “analog switches” unique with a lot of potential “, but apparently the company is starting to need something more:” After exhaustive investigations with the Flaretech manufacturer (Adomax), we have reached a limit. The analog pulse range only ranged from 1.5 mm to 3.6 mm of the total stroke of 4 mm. “Obviously, Wooting looked for alternatives until reaching the concept of” Hall effect switch with full analog range “.
In a separate publication the company explains how this new method works, but For To Sum It Up We Can Say That It Uses A Magnet That Emits Electromagnetic Force To Move Electrons A proximity sensor is located under the switch, and as the magnet moves closer to the signal becomes stronger These new keys are called Lekker, something That in Dutch means “rich” or “exquisite”, curiously, Wooting has wanted to give these switches an independent brand to be able to sell it separately to third parties. The keyboards The market is gaining interest little by little, but Wooting is not in a hurry; it wants to focus on launching a quality product.
