The Razer Huntsman Mini Analog Keyboard uses analog switches

Razer has unveiled its next keyboard, which uses the proprietary analog optical switches that debuted last year in the Razer Huntsman V2 Analog.

Recall that the amount of light that passes through such a switch depends on the degree of pushing, which allows three new features: analog input, actuation adjustment, and two-step actuation.

Analog input mimics the operation of a joystick for smooth control in games. Unlike the familiar discrete toggle action of the WASD buttons, a proportional trigger action is available to the player.

Actuation adjustments let you customize the operating stroke of each key to adapt the keyboard to your preferred gaming style, from a quick 1.5mm actuation for fast-paced games to a 3.6mm actuation that requires "deep, deliberate strokes.

With two-step actuation, a single key press can activate two functions programmed for different actuation points. For example, in the game, a half-press could pick up a grenade and a full-press could throw it at an enemy.

In addition, the absence of mechanical interaction between the contacts allowed for a lifespan of 100 million presses.

The Razer Huntsman Mini Analog keyboard, as you can tell from the name, is smaller than a regular keyboard. By doing away with the blocks of numeric and navigation keys, you get 60% of the size relative to keyboards with a full standard layout. The keyboard recognizes any number of keys pressed simultaneously. It connects to your computer with a detachable braided USB cable. The polling frequency is 1000 Hz.

The keyboard costs $150.
