WOOTING one Quick Overview
World’s First Analog Keyboard
Each key measures the distance that the user is pressing, and outputs a value. Instead of the traditional ON/OFF states of a keyboard, the Wooting keyboards register small movements made to the keyboard as individual values.
It is similar to the way a controller joystick works by recognizing how far it is pressed down. The user gets full control over in-game movement; whether it is a slight change of direction in driving games or a gradual adjustment of movement speed in shooter games.
Flaretech Optical Mechanical Switch
Each switch key uses infrared light (IR) and a sensor (PT) to detect input. The absence of metal contact eliminates the debounce time and also allows key switches to be hot-swappable to increase the long-term durability of the keyboard.
Increased durability – No corrosion or wear of material that can cause key chatter, i.e., unintended double input.
No debounce time – Regular mechanical switches vibrate a lot and can cause double input (key chatter). Debounce time is a small input delay until the signal is stable enough. Optical switches have no key chatter and need near zero debounce (0.03 ms).
Hot-swappable – You can take out and insert switches individually with a simple switch puller. A broken switch is not a broken keyboard anymore and you’re not bound to a single switch type.
Adjustable Actuation Point
The actuation point can be adjusted anywhere within the analog range (1.5 mm–3.6 mm). On regular mechanical keyboards this distance is usually fixed at around 2 mm.

Wooting and Seasonic Partnership
Taipei, Taiwan – Sea Sonic, a world leader in PC and industrial power supply design and manufacturing, announces exclusive sales and distribution cooperation with Wooting, the company behind the world’s first and most advanced analogue mechanical keyboard for the PC gaming market.
Sea Sonic’s global presence and strength in the American and European retail channels provide a strong platform to give consumers better access to Wooting products.
The partnership between Wooting and Sea Sonic is a perfect fit. Both companies are the front-runners in their respective domains where their collaboration is strengthened by their core beliefs: innovation, performance and quality.
A few months ago, we launched the Wooting Developer Portal that gave everyone access to our open source Analog SDK and RGB SDKs. While we continue to see a few people constantly working on their projects, we thought “Hey, we want to see more!”
What better way to do that if not with a contest? Have a project you started making but lost interest? Have an idea in the back of your mind but didn’t have a reason to make it yet? We’re here to fix that.
Wooting Launches Its Developer Portal
This one’s been a long time coming. The Wooting Developer Portal is now live! In short, anyone willing now has access to SDK’s (Software Development Kits) for both reading the analog values as well as controlling the RGB LEDs. If you’re a basement coder, now’s your chance to get involved.
In this post, I will talk a little bit about what it is, why it’s taken so long, and what you can do with it. If you want to skip the introductions, you can head straight to the devportal here.

Product Purchase and Support Questions
We’re a group of young guys from the Netherlands, that know each other from a long history of gaming. We got fed up with the gaming stereotype and terrible customer communication by major “gaming” companies and decided to start for ourselves.
We run Wooting with modern practices, open communication and transparency. At its core, it’s you with us challenging the industry and making impactful products. That’s why we crowdfunded our first product, the Wooting one, and keep the community at heart.
Currently, our mission is to make analog keyboards an industry standard. We strongly believe it’s the next step and are doing our best to support further developments within the field.
