This could be anything from a traditional PC joystick to a keyboard-like device with WASD replaced by an analogue stick, or a console-style controller cut in half. A pointing stick (nub, or nipple, or ding-ding) is a small joystick used as a pointing device typically mounted centrally in a computer keyboard.Like other pointing devices such as mice, touchpads or trackballs, operating system software translates manipulation of the device into movements of the pointer or cursor on the monitor. Unlike other pointing devices, it reacts to sustained force. Aimpad® patented technology adds full analog movement control to the traditional WASD keyboard layout. All the benefits of a controller. All the benefits of a keyboard. None of the limitations! I was hoping a analogue stick on the side of the keyboard would solve this. Thanks The Razer one isn’t a analog stick like you find on controller, it’s 8 way movement, Logitech g13 has a proper analog stick but it’s rare to find one.

We measure how far down a mechanical key is pressed using an infrared LED. The light from the LED is reflected off part of the key and then a sensor measures how much light is reflected. If a low amount of light is reflected we know that the key is at its highest point. If a higher amount of light is reflected, we know that the key is moving closer to the sensor.
By measuring how far down 4 keys are pressed we can extrapolate an X-Y coordinate to be used to generate movement data. This information can be passed to a game where it is seen as an xbox controller and allows smooth movement with game characters and vehicles.
This analog data can also be used for other things not possible on a standard mechanical keyboard. You can use analog keys to control the speed and direction of a mouse cursor and a mouse scroll wheel. You can control variable MIDI musical devices, manipulate 3D CAD objects, a jog wheel, volume control, or anything that requires a little more finesse than a strict on/off digital key press. You can also set the activation point to be anywhere in the key stroke. You can set multiple activation points in the same key stroke to send multiple commands.
Using Aimpad is like no other PC Gaming experience. It provides a ridiculous number of configurable keys and lightning quick response times of a normal mechanical keyboard. It provides the full analog movement of a gamepad while still allowing you to use the mouse. It’s like using a gamepad that you can actually aim with. It’s Aimpad!
Gaming Keypad With Joystick
If you find that your movement in PC Games is twitchy, abrupt, and awkward looking, it is time to use a keyboard designed for smooth analog movement. It is time for a keyboard with Aimpad technology!
