What is Aimpad Technology?

Simply put, with Aimpad technology, the MK850 is capable of sensing how far down the user presses on the Cherry MX switch key. Unlike other analog gaming keyboards with their own switch, Cherry MX is a familiar option to many gamers. Furthermore, with Aimpad, the MK850 can sense the entire 4mm range of a key press. In comparison, competitor analog keyboards are only capable of measuring 2mm of analog movement.
