Keyboards are not known for their analog experience, but there is a brand of mechanical boards that really nail it: boot. I've been a fan of the Wooting One and Wooting Two keyboards for a long time both perfect scores in a previous life, but something new comes this way. Something smaller.
It’s called Wooting 60HE and features analog Lekker switches with adjustable actions, along with all the benefits included with the new Wooting Two HE, in a highly compact package.
It’s also pretty damn good, as most of the keyboard is 60%. But what makes it special are these Lekker switches.
Previously, Wooting tables used infrared Flaretech switches, which used the magic of light to provide adjustable, incremental action for each key switch. These switches have since given way Lekker switches, which use a magnet and a Hall effect sensor.
Either way, what this means is that Wooting can offer analog control in the same way as a controller. It's a weird concept for PC gamers who are firmly accustomed to a digital keyboard switch on / off, but get used to it after a few hours.
It is quite useful for controlling the speed of the gear, the direction (when the rest fails), and you can even use it to create macro shortcuts depending on the force you press on a key.
The latter was a little beyond my demands for a full-size keyboard or even a TKL, but it could work wonders for a small 60% board like the 60HE.
