i'm one of the weirdo's that games with a mouse and keypad that had a thumbstick on it (Razer Orbweaver), so i'm always interested to see new tech that is similar. But my god that is the worst attempt at this i've ever seen. Comfort, design, ease of use, there's not one redeeming quality of that thing other than it is indeed, a keyboard. So if you want a 400 keyboard that doubles as a rage inducing controller that will give you CT, this is the keyboard for you!

All I want is a mouse-based gaming setup with an analog thumbstick to move around.

My example motivation is Cyberpunk 2077, where WASD works fine until you get in a vehicle, at which point a stick is so much better but apparently this is a weird stance to take.

How's the Orbweaver for you? Clearly you like it if you admit to it on the internet

it's good, but as with all things razor, the build is cheap. I'm on my 3rd one and this one has some drift from time to time. Cleaning it with some contact cleaner usually fixed it right up. But i don't think they make them anymore. But they do have something similar called the Tartus i think, I used to have that one as well. I like them both, but ideally i would like one with a legit thumbstick.

I'm pretty sure the Tartarus stick is digital and maps to the arrow keys. Sad face. Thank you, though!

oh yeah they bind to whatever you want, but either way it's a keyboard key so it's only slightly better

the only one i've seen with a true analog stick was the Logitech G13 ... but they don't make them anymore, maybe ebay?

just found this:

A little pricy for something that looks that odd. I could see that either being super comfortable ... or super annoying because of all the missclicks i feel like i would hit.

But if you happen to try it and like it, please let me know!

if I had that kind of disposable income I would ABSOLUTELY try it out! Should I stumble into one someday I'll try to report back.
