The Wooting One brings a highly useful innovation to mechanical keyboards with the implementation of analog input. Not only does it work but in certain cases it enhances your gaming experience. Along with the advantage of analog input, optical switches deliver an incredible durability which is double of what is offered by mechanical switches. The software offers the best experience of controlling illumination on the keyboard compared to the rest. It lacks macro recording functionality and certain other features are currently present as workarounds rather than native features. However, the Wootility software offers powerful control over the analog settings such as the variable actuation distance and customisable analog curve. This is their primary focus and they have implemented it quite well in a simple interface. Not to forget, there's also a big learning curve to get used to analog control on a keyboard. For almost all your life, you must have been using keyboards with digital input, and because of this muscle memory, it will take some time to be familiar with analog control. The biggest shortcoming is that the keyboard will still be detected as a controller and not an analog keyboard. Since the concept of an analog keyboard is new, games don’t really have native support for these keyboards yet. The only way for it to happen is the adoption of this technology by big video game developers and studios.
A mechanical keyboard with analog input might sound incredible for keyboard enthusiasts. However, for regular users, it doesn’t really mean anything unless they experience it first. The Wooting One can cater to both. If the analog input is taken out of the picture, the keyboard works brilliantly in the normal digital mode as well. But you shouldn’t be buying a Wooting keyboard if you aren’t going to use the analog mode. Being tenkeyless, it could be a deal-breaker for many but fret not, they are coming out with the Wooting Two. This one is going to be a standard-size keyboard with a number pad. Coming back to the Wooting One, they don’t officially sell in India yet. If you wish to buy one then you’d have to do so from their website and bear international shipping charges.
