The largest trend in mechanical computer keyboards at this time is speed. Cherry has only released their Rate switches that cut down the actuation space, but Tesoro are looking to go one better with their new Tesoro Infra-Red Switches. The notion of these switches is that they’ll be optical, so reduce the mechanical bounce latency of current mechanical computer keyboards from several milliseconds to less than one millisecond. Everything seems quite good on paper, and it is blessed that it does, because that is all we’ve at the minute – an thought on paper.
The Computex statement was free of other details. However, it’ll be quite exciting to see a brand new technology in the mass market.
