The Wooting One keyboard started off in a Kickstarter campaign that ended up more than quadrupling their goals, which is now starting to ship. The reason it was so popular is because it offers both analog and digital keypress functionality. Analog keyboards allow you to change the input received by your computer based on how far you depress the key, for instance it could be mapped to move forward and range from a slow walk to a full run depending on how far down you pushed the key. Ryan interviewed the Lance Madison from Aimpad, who have also designed an analog keyboard, you can watch the video here to learn more about the technology.
The Wooting one sports RGBs behind its keys as well, with one digital profile and three analog which you can program using their Wootility. Check out the full review at TechPowerUp!
"The Wooting One is a long-anticipated keyboard that promised a lot and delivers on every single item. It features analog control over travel distance for two different optical switch designs, per-key RGB backlighting, a software driver allowing customization of digital and analog profiles which are saved onboard, and good build quality with thick ABS plastic and an aluminum-top-plate construction."

I’m so tempted by this, but the lack of numeric keypad, or USB hub to daisychain mince/numeric pad is honeslty holding me off.
The analogue nature is perfect for animation, and it is always nice to support the little guys with innovative tech. Not much innovation from other manufacturers at this point.. 🙁
