I think this experience gap @Dr.Doof mentions is why descriptions of what topre switches feel like end up sounding like copy from the GOOP catalog.
Descriptions about it’s high tactility point and rounded overall tactility aren’t wrong. But the reason why force graphs aren’t enough is because they don’t capture why I actually enjoy typing on Topre.
Rather than shy away from the “woo”, I’ll channel my inner Gwyneth to describe it:
You know the feeling of using a tool like a hammer, where you’re so in the flow of hammering that you stop thinking about the hammer as an object? Topre switches lend themselves to a similar feeling of immersion in utility.
In terms of describing Topre’s feel, the “good feeling of oneness with cup rubber” is goofy, but they kinda nailed it. Ok, “woo” over.
Anyway, I keep a number of different MX-style linears, tactiles, and clickies in the rotation, spice of life and all, but whenever I need to write a lot, I reach for my fancy rubber domes.
