Tenkeyless Electro Capacitive Keyboard

Known among the Mechanical Keyboard community for its combination of the very desirable Topre switches and the ubiquitous Cherry MX stem, the Novatouch allows you to finally enjoy the Topre feel and not let your collection of custom Cherry stem keycaps go to waste.

Note: This drop is for the Novatouch TKL Barebones and will not come with any keycaps.

Hybrid Capacitive Switches

The Topre switch was designed and manufactured in Japan to create a noncontact switch that could replicate N-key rollover while removing key chatter. At its core is a metal spring and a capacitive sensor that registers keystroke mid actuation. And while most of the resistance is created by the rubber dome sheet, these switches offer a smooth and satisfyingly tactile feel with a distinct “thock” sound at the bottom that distinguishes them from your standard rubber dome keyboard.
