Wooting announced the new analog 60% Wooting 60HE keyboard

By - | Views: 8,618

Wooting, maker of some pretty nice looking analog keyboards has announced the latest with the Wooting 60HE.

Over here we're a fan of Wooting, since they fully support Linux with their products. It's still pretty rare since other vendors don't but their Wootility application is cross-platform and appears to work quite well and they have a bunch of what's used up on GitHub too.

The new Wooting 60HE offers up a smaller model compared with their previous kit, giving you another option if you're after something more compact with the 60% design. The case is also designed to be "universal", allowing you to remove it easily and put on a different one. Still featuring their Lekker switch, offering up near-silent full range analog input switch for each individual key and some fancy RGB too because why the heck not. You can also adjust the actuation point of each key too, if you feel some keys need you to press harder or softer - do it.

Much like the System76 Launch Configurable Keyboard, it offers up full keybind customization with a layer system too available with their software. Interested? Take a look at their video below:

Check out their crowdfunding campaign if interested. It's managed to hit well over the goal in only 8 hours too, so it seems to be quite popular. With a €169.99 regular price (€154.99 for the campaign), it seems pretty reasonable.

How do those devices work with games?
Do they use a software that maps keys to xpad axis?

Can we please have one with a 10key? People ask me, 'why do you need a 10 key' here are the reasons...
1) I use it generally to type in 2fa codes...
2) A lot of older games used the 10key as the controls, and I'm too lazy to rebind everything to more modern standards of WASD.
3) Emulation. Where the keypad is used either as joystick emulation or even more software that requires the keypad for movement.

160 euros for a keyboard is far from reasonable

I have an interesting requirement that more and more keyboards lack... the BOOT Protocol on keyboards. Without this there are many UEFI or older systems like my G5 Mac, and my Vampire Standalone that won't work. Kind of silly that more keyboards are lacking this. Wonder if this one supports it.

Looking good. Just wish there was a model with 5 macro keys on the left side of the keyboard.

What is a 10key? something that inputs "10"? Never saw anything like that, especially not in keybindings.

The layout is not column-aligned (ortholinear or ergodox-like). I'll pass, I have enough typewriter keyboards :)

Plus, I've recently discovered the joy of binding games to esdf instead of wasd/zqsd: my fingers rest at their natural positions, I have more keys to bind on the left, and with a straight/ergonomic layout, it's a breeze to access the keys, like on a numpad. Good luck trying these bindings on a typewriter layout...

Also, I now have a gaming layer on my ergodox EZ: I rebind keys that would normally be meta, caps (ESC) and other to be more game-friendly. Basically, I can bind any key reachable by my left hand.

So what you're saying is that you don't want a physical typewriter key positions, but you still want the typewriter layout.
