If you’re into tactile switches, you’ll love these Kailh BOX Royal switches. With a switch weight of 75 grams, they’re nice and heavy for an actuation you can really feel. And because they’re BOX switches, you won’t have to worry about dust, debris, or a little bit of water. Created with a box around the cross stem instead of the cross stem just sticking up, they’re IP56 rated to prevent damage from outside sources. Finally, the switches are compatible with Cherry MX switches and clones.
The NovelKeys name was inspired by founder Mike Sickler’s wife. When checking out a set of novelty keycaps from SA Camping, Mrs. Sickler thought it’d be clever to call those particular keycaps "Novelkeys." Eventually, the joke stuck and became the name of the company. NovelKeys originally started with mechanical keyboard–related products made with 3D-printing techniques. Since then, the company has worked with Kaihua Kailh to design exclusive switches in different variations of weight/feedback to satisfy mech keys enthusiasts around the globe.
