Clack and Thock

For mechanical keyboard enthusiasts, the joy of typing is not limited to just the sensation of how each key press feels on their fingers. Part of the appeal is also in seeking for that perfect clack and thocky sound that the keyboard produces, depending on a lot of factors, including the material your case is made of, your switches, and the type and profile of the keycaps, among others. It’s a deep rabbit hole, so to bring us back to the basics to understand all these terms and why this utilitarian device can be so compelling to some, we speak to Elaine Lim, founder of SingaKBD, an artisanal keyboard maker that produces premium cases for the community.
