Known among the Mechanical Keyboard community for its combination of the very desirable Topre 45g switches and the ubiquitous Cherry MX stem, the Novatouch allows you to finally enjoy the Topre feel with custom keycaps. For this limited drop, Massdrop has collaborated with Cooler Master, Matt3o, and Vortex to bring a fusion of design and style to the community. On this drop, the community will receive the NovaTouch TKL along with the Matt3o designed SuperNova PBT keycap base set manufactured in Cherry profile by Vortex.
Note: This drop is limited to 500 units. The estimated shipping time has been posted after considering all the variables that are making this collaboration across several companies and individuals happen for this once in a lifetime keyboard release.
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.
For this limited run, the NovaTouch will don a cape and go Super NovaTouch with Matt3o’s classic aesthetics and the manufacturing capabilities of Vortex. Inspired by the “Space Cadet” color way and gravitating towards a classic PBT keyset, the SuperNova keyset was born when the then named Space Pilot met the newly created Novatouch. Made in dye sublimated PBT with the Cherry profile layout, the Super NovaTouch offers solid construction underneath and up top to fully satisfy your fingers.
All orders will be shipped by Massdrop.
Estimated ship date is Sep 30, 2015 PT.
After the drop ends, payment will be collected. To deliver the best value to the group the request will then be submitted to the vendor up front, making all sales final. Be sure to check the discussion page for updates.
