Wooting 60HE

When you support the Wooting 60HE, you'll become a founding member and leave a permanent mark on the final product. You'll join our journey with monthly video updates, bi-weekly livestreams, and discussions with our vibrant community. Your voice will have an impact on the final result and steers the direction we take with software.

Regardless if you silently support our development, or actively partake in the community; this is you with us challenging the industry. Let's take control together.


We are thrilled and excited by the initial response and reached the goal of €75,000 within 8 hours. We have some stretch goals incoming more info this Monday. This is just the start, stay tuned. 

Wooting 60HE

Take control

My movement is off… Perhaps my response is too slow… Or is my muscle memory slipping… stop - no more excuses. Take control with the Wooting 60HE and unleash the best in you.

Analog input unleashed

The Wooting 60HE detects full switch motion with 0.1mm accuracy from start to end. Every single key outputs an analog signal that can be used for numerous features that enhances your typing and gaming experience. There is no compromise to be made in what a regular ol’ keyboard might have to offer. Welcome to the future.

Built for performance

You need the fastest possible input delivered consistently without fail. Not just eye-blinding RGB and dissuasive promises. This is how we deliver you the fastest possible input.

Programmed for the fastest input
We built the keyboard firmware from the ground up, optimized for input speed. Turn on Tachyon mode to prioritize keyboard scanning over useless RGB effects. The 60HE will update every analog key position in less than 1ms, every 1ms.

Engineered without compromises
Traditional keyboards adhere to cost saving matrix scanning and hide the negative impact on input speed using dissuasive marketing. The Wooting 60HE reads the individual keys and parallel scans them for the lowest possible latency.

Input speed

Actuation point

Eliminate the slowest element in input latency; the initial key press travel before key activation. You have full control over your actuation point from 0.1 to 4.0mm.

Configurable per key in 0.1mm steps, you can customize each key towards your playstyle.

Rapid trigger

Eliminate the second slowest element in input latency; return key press travel before key deactivation. Rapid Trigger dynamically changes the actuation and deactivation point. Your keys will activate when you intend to press them and deactivate when you intend to let go.

You can repeat a key press mid motion without needing to surpass a fixed reset or actuation point for rapid presses.

Enhance your gameplay

Trackmania

Take control over analog steering and easily beat gamepad favored tacks. Analog keyboard is the new meta, you won’t need to retrain and switch from input device.

Fortnite

Get native double movement input straight from the Wooting 60HE without the latency from gamepad emulator software. In addition you can control your movement angle based on analog press depth without fiddling on a quirky joystick.

Valorant

You are the quickest shot, if you’re the quickest to halt movement. Rapid trigger instantly deactivates your key when you intend to release and gives you immediate accuracy in tactical shooters.

Rocket Leauge

You now have full access to fine-tuned manoeuvres with keyboard keys. In addition you still have true north, east, south, and west movement with incremental control - a cumbersome feat when using joysticks.

Leauge of legends

Dynamic Keystroke (DKS) open the doors to instant casting while still displaying the casting range. Slightly press the key for the casting range and fully press to cast. When you need to instantly cast, just quickly press the key.

Gateron x Lekker switch

A contactless magnet switch powered by Hall effect sensors. No metal leaf, pins, optics or other sensitive hardware that suffers from wear, tear, and particles. This survives the test of times and lasts millions of presses. Broke one? Just swap it out for a new one.

Its simple construction and quality build assures a frictionless linear press. There’s no bump, rub, or scratch. There’s just that linear smoothness.

Smooth typing experience

You don’t need to trade an incredible typing experience for cutting edge gaming performance. This is not your stereotypical gaming keyboard.

The pre-lubed super smooth Lekker switches, greased stabilizers, foam filled case, hardened steel switch plate, and slim design offer an incredibly satisfying typing experience. Don’t be surprised if your 60HE ends up in the office, study, or even a public environment. You’ll find excuses to type something.

Easy to use software

You won’t need to watch youtube tutorials to get started or break a nerve with the simplest task. The Wootility is simple to use and easy to master.

All stored on the keyboard

You don’t need software to run in the background. All the features work straight from the keyboard and all your settings are saved on the 8MB on-board memory.

Compatible with every OS

No matter if you use Windows, MacOS, or Linux; we support all operating systems.

Layers and smart shortcuts

Layers, functions, and smart solutions are all essential to reach peak productivity with minimal keyboard estate. The Wooting 60HE has 4 keyboard profiles with each 3 programmable layers. All accessible with function keys. You're not restricted to the standard mapping and can remap everything without limitations..

Remap - no limits

You can map each key however you see fit over multiple layers and profiles. You won't be forced to learn silly function layers with non-descriptive icons or live with mediocre arrow key solutions. You have full control over your productive workflow with remap.

Mod-tap
Single press for arrow key, hold for modifier key. This is the power of mod-tap. Differentiate between a short and long press to uncover peak productivity.

KeycapsKeycaps

Keycaps

Keycaps determine the look and feel of the keyboard. But they also decide the language layout, even when the keyboard underneath supports all languages. It’s not possible for us to support every language with the best possible keycaps, this is why we separate keycap options between ANSI and ISO layout.

Wooting double-shot PBT keycaps
High quality double-shot PBT keycaps with a clean design, pure color, shine-through, and all-round thick edges. This is the premier of Wooting doubleshot keycaps, once you own them, you’ll never look back. These are pre-installed and only available for ANSI layout keyboards.

Wooting ABS shine-through Keycaps
High quality ABS shine-through keycaps with Wooting’s signature design, icons, and backlight support. These are reliable keycaps that allow us to support multiple languages. These are not pre-installed and only available for ISO layout.

://blank double-shot PBT keycaps
Great quality for value double-shot PBT keycaps with a clean font, shine-through, and thick edges. These are alternative branded keycaps available as an add-on or not pre-installed for ISO - German layout.

Universal Tray-mount

GeekHack’s greatest invention, copied by many, and now considered the universal standard for 60% keyboards. You can take out the 60HE module to install in 3rd party (aluminum) cases or install 3rd party 60% keyboards into the 60HE case. You can even make your own case or use no case at all. You’re in control.

I’m welcoming stretch goals. But not in the flavor of free stuff with the product. Instead, it’s “with this quantity, we can be less concerned about the MOQ” and “with this amount raised, it’s worth the time figuring out this thing”.
We did it. € 75,000 within 8 hours.

I can’t express how fortunate I and the team feels that we’ve reached 100% funding within 8 hours! That’s a new record for us. We’ve worked incredibly hard for this launch and built up towards this point for a long while. I need to give a lot of credit to my team members for creating such an awesome experience and bringing the Wooting 60HE to life.

About this project

Why we need your help

We took the initial step to develop the Wooting 60HE and invest in the required molds and tooling. We need your support to finance the mass production. It’s not possible for us to produce the Wooting 60HE in small quantities and the minimal order quantity is more than we can borrow from creditors. With your support, we can close the gap and get the wheel spinning. You are our greatest stakeholder.

Money well spent

We spend the earnings on what is necessary to run Wooting and deliver this great product. Here is a cost breakdown of where your money goes to.

Who are we?

We started as three gamers from the Netherlands that got fed up with the gaming stereotype and terrible customer communication by “gaming” companies. Now we’re a team of five and a great community challenging the industry.

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.
