Cooler Master Debuts ControlPad via Kickstarter
Tech Company Launches World’s First Analog Keypad
LOS ANGELES, CALIF., October 11, 2018 - Cooler Master, a global leader in designing and manufacturing innovative gaming peripherals and computer components, today announces the debut of ControlPad, the world’s first PC keypad with analog Aimpad™ technology, designed for gamers, content creators, musicians, and more.
“Designed as a passion project from the ground up, ControlPad aims to change the way we interact with our most used programs and applications on a more intuitive scale,” says Bryant Nguyen, Peripheral General Manager.
ControlPad harbors 24 mechanical keys available in Cherry MX Red or Gateron Red switch types. It is fully programmable through easy to use software, has a removable wrist rest for ultimate comfort, two precision scroll wheels, fully RGB backlit, and finished in a sleek brushed aluminum. ControlPad is equipped with Aimpad™ technology that provides mechanical keyboards the precision control most commonly found in devices such as aviation joysticks, steering wheels, and gaming controllers, enabling analog control in digital inputs.
ControPad for Gaming
Enabling analog control in digital inputs, Aimpad™ allows users to control speed, yaw, adjust pitch, creep, and roll. During driving games Aimpad™ can be utilized to make smooth turns on the fly or ease into gentle curves by simply changing the distance of the keypress.
ControPad for Creative Professionals
ControlPad can be used to make production and editing applications more intuitive and useful on-the-fly. Apply presets, switch tools, adjust brush opacity, thickness, or size during brush strokes with pressure sensitive inputs on ControlPad.
Cooler Master implemented macro presets and control schemes for several notable video games and popular applications for consumer and professional use. This includes actions, hotkeys, and shortcuts for the entire Adobe Suite, including PhotoShop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, Final Cut, and more. Additionally, Cooler Master will offer special keycap sets to match said presets.
ControlPad is available for backing on Kickstarter on October 11, 2018.
