Remember that sweet mechanical keyboard with pressure-sensitive keys I told you about a few months ago? The one with the weird name? It's hit Kickstarter.

The Wooting one, as it's known, has already surpassed its €30,000 funding goal, sitting at €46,915 as of the time of writing and just two days in. The company behind it says the keyboard is nearly finished and a manufacturer is lined up; they just needed a bit extra to finalize the firmware, so now it's off to the races.

Since we last saw it, the Wooting one's switches have been detailed. They are indeed custom: dubbed Flaretech optical switches, they come in Red ("Linear silent" for gaming) and Blue ("Non-linear clicky") and are described as "modular" and "fast as light."

Other features include RGB backlighting, a braided cable, media keys, firmware that can be updated via USB, gaming profiles, and tons of customization (you name it and you can probably customize it).

Despite all this goodness, the keyboard retains a simple design and doesn't require any external software, hardware, cables, or fiddling about.

The Wooting one is estimated to ship this November.
