Wooting is a DTC computer accessory startup specializing in analog mechanical gaming keyboards. Wooting is a company that produces mechanical keyboards and related accessories.
With console controllers, gamers use their analog sticks to dictate how quickly (or slowly) they move in a game.
Wooting’s analog keyboards were among the first to imitate this feature.
These keyboards can sense how hard a user presses a button, which moves the in-game character based on that input.
Wooting is part of the Analog Keyboards meta trend.
Mechanical keyboards read key presses in a binary fashion: either pressed or not pressed.
This is a problem as many games (often stealth games and third-person shooters) require precise aiming and maneuvering to play effectively.
And analog keyboards (searches up 140% over the last five years) are emerging as a solution to this problem.
Demand for these keyboards will likely continue to grow, considering that major players in the space (like Razer) are releasing analog keyboards.
