Preview of the Kickstarter rewards

Kickstarter is nearing!

EDIT: The Kickstarter is LIVE

Live on Kickstarter

Mark the date! We aim to launch the Kickstarter on the 22nd of May, 24th of May, we'll make sure to keep you up-to-date if anything changes and notify you at what time we will exactly go live.If you're as excited as we are, then help us out and join our Thunderclap or spread the message to your fellow gamers.Now let me show you a bit of what we've been working on and check out the upcoming Kickstarter rewards we're planning.

The Kickstarter video

We like to keep everything authentic, honest and transparent. That's why we also like to do many things ourselves instead of spending it all out just to make it look extremely professional. We'd rather spend that kind of Ka-ching on the actual product and gaming community.So, when it came to the Kickstarter video we only spent money on renting a studio, camera equipment, and a camera-guy. The rest is all DIY, no actors, no stock footage, no friend-benefits, no marketing company etc. Just us, with an idea and a lot of willpower.

Kickstarter Video

Oh, and right now we're busy with the video editing, ourselves. So, it doesn't get any more real than that if you ask me. We're excited!!

Kickstarter rewards (Preview)

When we started, we wanted to offer two optional items: a wrist pad and PBT or Double ABS keycaps. In the end, we decided that we'd include neither. The reason? It just didn't feel right and it would add too much workload if we did it how we want it.I've received several wrist-pad samples ranging from foam to wood but it all felt too generic. We would rather make one ourselves with your feedback, instead of rushing one out just for the sake of it.The same counts for the keycaps. We went by Tai-Hao, but they didn't offer any backlit compatible PBT or double ABS keycaps and weren't as eager as we were to do something cool. Other keycap manufacturers we found only offered backlit double ABS keycaps with those horrifying "futuristic/gaming" legends. Not cool.Coming to the point that we decided to keep it to the core product. The Wooting one.

Ze rewards

Introduction: I've noticed that we've been a bit too shallow on explaining exactly what these Rewards mean and entail. So I've made everything a bit more clear and added some information.We've done our best to give the most competitive prices available, so that as many as possible people can start using an analog keyboard and we can work towards an industry standard. Your contribution isn't only for an advanced keyboard, it's also for our continued work in developing a better analog experience, upgrading your Wooting one keyboard with new analog features and build the pillars of which Wooting can continuously serve gamers with game changing ideas.After the Kickstarter we will send out a Survey to ask, besides the standard, the following questions:

  • Do you want an ISO or ANSI layout, already in
  • If ISO: What language layout do you want? (Nordic, Latin, QWERTZ, AZERTY, let us know!)
  • Do you want Flaretech red or blue switch?
  • If you choose Red switch, the additional switches will be blue and you'll receive 2 extra red switches
  • If you choose Blue switch, the additional switches will be red and you'll receive 2 extra blue switches.
