We've seem Aimpad's analogue input in action before, on other Cooler Master products as well as a Wooting one.  Cooler Master has released the MK850 which utilizes this technology, along with providing RGBs for you to gaze longingly at.  You might have noticed that there are more than a few keys on this board, the extras allow you to toggle analogue input off and on as well as modifying the sensitivity of the keys which do have analogue capability, the Q, W, E, R, A, S, D, and F specifically.  M1 through M5 allow you different profiles for different games.

Take a gander at the full review The Tech Report posted if you are interested.

"Forget, for a moment, what the Cooler Master MK850 looks like. Forget about its RGB lighting, its brushed metal top, its many keys and buttons, and the software that comes with it, because none of those things make it a keyboard of consequence. The only thing we really care about is whether or not the MK850 can deliver on the tantalizing promise of analog keyboard input for gaming."
