Cooler Master picks up enough for making a mechanical keypad




with analog input
Cooler Master will release ControlPad released last week. The company has achieved the Kickstarter target of 43,295 euros for making the keypad with analog mechanical tests in the past weekend.

Cooler Master has achieved the goal within four days of the start of his Kickstarter project and there are still 41 days left for the campaign. The ControlPad is a keypad with 24 mechanical keys with analog controls, similar to the Wooting keyboard.

When implementing the ControlPad, a sensor measures how far the mechanical switch is pressed: the light from an infrared LED reflects from the bottom of the key and the sensor measures the amount to determine the distance. The degree of impressions can thus be used for applications.

The manufacturer will supply the ControlPad with red switches from Cherry MX and Gateron. The accessory also has rgb lighting, two wheels and a removable palm rest. According to Cooler Master, the part is especially suitable for gaming, where the company refers to the list of games that Aimpad supports for precise operation.

Cooler Master also thinks of supporting for example Photoshop and Illustrator, and also wants to make special keycaps for this, besides keycaps for fps games, for example. The company expects to be able to start delivery in May and uses a ‘starting’ amount of 69 euros for a ControlPad with Gateron switch for the Kickstarter project. What the retail price is going to be is not yet known.
