What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Prototype Gallery

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

You asked for a full-size (numpad) version of the Wooting one, so we created the Wooting two. It’s not only a community requested Wooting keyboard, but also an important milestone for us towards the ultimate goal to make analog input keyboards the industry standard. 

Supporting this project will not only create the Wooting two, but also further boost our already rapid software development and adoption of analog input keyboards.

Important note: After the Kickstarter, a survey will go out to ask which switch version you want for either/both the keyboard and separate switches. 

Available in these layouts:

  • United states/International - US-ANSI
  • United kingdom - UK-ISO
  • German - DE-ISO
  • Swedish, Denmark, Finish - NR-ISO

If there are enough requests for different languages like: French, Spanish etc. We will offer them later during the kickstarter. So be sure to let us know if we don't offer your language. You can find more info about layouts further on this page.

Important Shipping notice for EU customers

The pledge prices are excluding shipping, customs and VAT fees for European Union customers. If you reside in an European Union country, your shipping, customs and VAT fees will be added during checkout.  

We will take care of the importation, delivery, VAT and custom charges. This will save you a major headache, long transits and unexpected bills from your local import customs.  

Please see the Reward table under the headline: Reward Option for accurate pledge amounts including shipping & VAT.

Every key on the Wooting two can see how far you press down for analog input. Similar to how a joystick on a controller works, you can gradually control the amount of input. 

We used it to get analog input in PC games that support either Xinput (xbox controller) or DirectInput (generic controller). You can still use it as a regular keyboard at the same time.  

Developers can also take advantage of analog input using the Wooting Developer Portal and create native support for their application, program or game..More on this later.

Immerse yourself into the game

You control your movement and get to play games as they were intended.

You can walk at NPC friendly speeds, and entirely immerse yourself into the game.

Take control of your sneaking speed like a real assassin.

No need to purchase multiple devices, the Wooting two can cover all your basic controls.

Enhance your gaming experience

Get finer control over your favorite games, you won’t need to switch to a controller for driving, flying or analog movements.

Get more control over different vehicles in sandbox games.

Take control over the steering wheel without having to purchase one. You can finally enjoy racing games using a keyboard.

 Walk at different paces and finely control your leans for fine peeking.

Get the competitive advantage

Create unique functions that can give you an edge in different games.

You don’t need to learn how to play with a controller, keep that keyboard goodness.

Leverage Double Keystroke (DKS)

Bind multiple inputs at different actuation points with DKS. The new advanced DKS allows more complex bindings based on key press down and up events.

See your casting range with a slight press and cast the spell when bottomed-out.

Select your building with a slight press, build when bottomed-out and equip your weapon again when finished with the advanced DKS control.

The advanced DKS allows you to control both the down and upstroke event.

Turn up the dial, input speed to the max.

You’re a highly competitive gamer, can’t use gimmicks and just need the fastest possible input speed. We got your back. We leveraged the optical switch technology and optimized our firmware for the fastest possible input speed.

 Learn more on what influences it and how we measured it.

Type DM’s to your friends

The Wooting two is not only an analog keyboard, it’s also an extraordinary mechanical keyboard. You can still type like any other keyboard without ever noticing it’s such an advanced analog keyboard. 

Enjoy true N-key rollover (NKRO) and anti-ghosting. The Wooting two can see and report all 108/109 keys at the same time. 

Adjustable actuation point

You can even change the keyboard actuation point anywhere between the 1.5 to 3.6mm on each profile.

Happy typing!  

Developer access

We launched the Wooting Developer portal, which allows full access to Wooting keyboards' analog input, RGB control and more. Read more at the “Wooting Developer Portal” header.

We saved no expenses in our choice of material and general build quality. We’re known for our strict quality assurance and take great care to deliver nothing but the best. This keyboard is unbendable or twistable. Guaranteed. But don’t put it in a blender.

Optical Flaretech Prism Switches

The Wooting two houses Flaretech prism switches. Together with the Flaretech switch manufacturer, we made an unique analog version. These switches not only have a very sophisticated mechanism for analog input, but are also but are also a great mechanical switch.

The Flaretech prism switches have a standard Cherry MX cross-stem and will house any aftermarket keycaps.

Hot-swappable

You can hot-swap the Flaretech switches for any other Flaretech switch variant. You can mix and match switches or swap the entire set around if you feel like it.

Note: After the Kickstarter, a survey will go out to ask which switch variant you want.

Very smooth typing experience

The typing experience on the Wooting two is extremely satisfying thanks to the very smooth and linear Flaretech switches. You might forget that it’s an analog keyboard. There’s no scratch, or uneven distribution of force.

Analog input

Infrared light going through the switch
Infrared light going through the switch

The Flaretech prism switches work entirely based on infrared light. The further down you press, the more infrared light is received by the keyboard. This results in an analog signal.  

At this moment the total analog range is from 1.5 to 3.6mm of the total 4mm switch travel.

KISS design

Keep It Simple Stupid (KISS), Mwa! Sometimes in life, you need to keep things simple. The Wooting two has a sleek low profile design with floating keys, keeping it clean and to the point.

Easy-access multimedia keys 

Dedicated media keys are often mushy, easily break and make your keyboard bloated. The smartly positioned media keys on the Wooting two gives you quick access with a single hand.

Access all your multimedia keys with the FN key or transform these keys into dedicated multimedia keys using the FN-toggle mode, eliminating the need to hold down the FN key.

A Numpad

Enjoy typing IP addresses, entering data in Excel and sending 1010 code to friends, all with that sweet extra piece of keyboard.. The numpad enables you to enter data faster than ever before.

Analog input Don’t care about data, and just want that gaming goodness? You can even use the numpad for flying analog in GTA5. Every key on the Wooting two has analog input, including the numpad.

Macropad Get away with the numbers and program all of the numpad keys into dedicated macro keys with the new advanced DKS.

Are you a streamer? How about creating a special profile for streaming? Instantly change scenes, emotes, sound effects and all the shenanigans you have. Assign a unique color for each key, so you won’t forget.

Dedicated Action keys and mode switch
 

The Action keys Quickly swap between your different analog profiles using the A1-3 keys. You can program the analog profile keys to any other key, and use the A1-3 keys for custom hotkeys or macros. 

The Mode key This is a dedicated key that allows you to instantly transform the Wooting two from an advanced Analog input gaming keyboard into a normal Digital keyboard that is solely focused on its typing capabilities.

Let’s be honest with each other. We could both claim that per-key RGB is lame and unnecessary. But once you have it… it’s a lot more fun and cooler than you expected! 

Get ready to crack some “oh what bs, I don’t need that” sentences, while watching the full glory of RGB effects possible on a Wooting keyboard.

Developer custom RGB control You can easily take custom RGB control by using the Wooting Developer portal. Create your own RGB effects or RGB events based on activities. Read more at "The Wooting Developer Portal" header.

If you’re like us, you must be pretty fed up with the godawful software from “gaming” companies. That’s why we made our own to-the-point software that we’re continuously improving. 

We openly share what’s coming next on the Roadmap.

A place where developers can find all the resources, to make analog keyboards work natively in games, programs and applications. Including custom RGB control.  

Custom analog snake on your keyboard? Let your imagination run wild. It already works for the Wooting one and with the success of the Wooting two, we will be able to expand it.  

The developer portal is designed to support everything from the hobbyist who just want to makes something cool, to game developers who want to unlock full analog control in their game.  

With this developer portal we embrace the spirit of community and sharing. This means that all our development tools will be open source and open for contribution. As always, your feedback is what makes our stuff great.

RGB control

The RGB control will allow you to change the color of any key on your keyboard. Per-key or the whole keyboard at the same time. You can create anything from notifications, custom effects to games on your keyboard.

Discord notifications

Create an RGB event based on a discord notification. Important DM from your gaming buddy? Let the ESC key blink.

Audio visualizer

Play your music and visualize it on the keyboard.

Analog communication 

Analog communication is the secret sauce that will make the Wooting two (and one) really shine. It allows developers to build true native support analog keyboard for games and applications.  

Armed with this library we’re on a quest to make analog keyboard just work. Wonder when you can use it? We already started.

Native analog control in the game Fugl

You don’t need to rely on any Xinput or Directinput. Just plug in the Wooting one and it will immediately recognize and work as the game developers intended it to. That’s what to call true native analog support.

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.  

Wooting at its core is you with us challenging the industry and making impactful products.

We had successfully crowdfunded our first product, the Wooting one, on Kickstarter. We shared monthly reports and openly shared both our success and failures during the development. Check out our production vlog series to see us keeping that commitment. Ever since, we haven’t stopped sharing our progression and continuous development.

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.

We tailored the prices to best accommodate International, United States and European customers. This also came with some technical issues showing prices on Kickstarter.   

Europe  

The pledge prices are excluding shipping, customs and VAT fees for European Union customers. If you reside in an European Union country, your shipping, customs and VAT fees will be added during checkout. 

Please see the Reward table under the headline: Reward Option for accurate pledge amounts including shipping & VAT.  

We will take care of the importation, delivery, VAT and custom charges. This will save you a major headache, long transits and unexpected bills from your local import customs.  

If you take the reward price and add the shipping and custom fee during checkout, you will see the regular price incl. local VAT and shipping.  

There is free shipping for the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Germany. For other countries, there’s a small shipping fee for nearby countries (€5) and distant countries (€10). We ship everything within Europe from the Netherlands using DHL Express.  

You can learn more on our blog page.  

United States  

All the reward prices include free shipping in the United States.  

The Kickstarter prices are originally in Euros, but you will see them in a Kickstarter converted US dollar amount. We have done our best to keep the prices in line with our target but the ongoing conversion rate will heavily influence this.  

We ship everything in the United States using FedEx smartpost. If you would prefer USPS priority or UPS parcel shipping, you can add an additional 10$ to your pledge.  

International (non-EU, non-US)  

There’s a international shipping fee added based on your country. You can expect it to be in the range of €20-30. Please keep in mind, we do not take care of your local VAT and import fees.  

You can check with your local customs to find out what the expected fees are and what the maximum value of goods you’re allowed to import without added VAT and import fees.  

We ship everything to Canada using USPS international parcels from the United States. We ship everywhere else using PostNL international parcels from the Netherlands.  

Any questions about shipping or prices? Feel free to ask us.

The Wooting community for having our back and always supporting us through the way. 

- Luc aka "Breax" for helping with the video.

- Fynn Smaak for early promotion material.

It’s you and us. We founded Wooting on Kickstarter, we consider you as our stakeholders and part of the team. We felt it was also logical for us to continue this trend by launching the Wooting two on Kickstarter as well. After-all, you asked us to create a full-size, so we created the Wooting two. 

It’s an investment. Manufacturing a new product at scale is an expensive investment that we can’t afford on our own. As a small startup company making hardware products, we have no access to bank loans, investors and funding programs. That’s why we rely on crowdfunding to raise the capital, make the investment and know it will give a return.

It’s a fail-safe. We hear a lot of customers and potential customers ask for a full-size version, but often the loudest voices do not represent the majority. Kickstarter also helps us put this to the test before making a major investment that can bankrupt us.

It’s a marketing tool. Kickstarter has a large audience interested in supporting these type of projects that we can also potentially reach. It also helps create more urgency and hype around the launch, perfect to get the keyboard under a spotlight
.

Risks and challenges

We gained a lot of experience from our first Kickstarter that was successfully delivered to every customer around the world. We even deal with local customs in Europe, no unexpected bill at your front door.

This time around, we’re not only able to manufacture and deliver the Wooting two at a faster pace, we are also able to guarantee the quality of every keyboard that we produce. After the Kickstarter, you will follow us through every step of the production and update you with monthly reports. No different from our first Kickstarter, the Wooting one.

We also don’t face anymore manufacturing or R&D challenges. We’ve become very familiar with the technology, make use of an outstanding assemble factory and understand both the product and technology deeply.

After the Kickstart is a success, we will revise our prototype based on your feedback and try to find more places of improvement. During this phase, based on the amount of adjustment, there's a chance that we might experience a slight delay. We generally keep this to a minimum to avoid any issues, as long as your interest is kept at heart.
