This new Thinket form-factor adds a "reassuring-thud" to the action called a "satisfying-bounce" delivered by every Standard action Thinket). The "reassuring-thud" effect was the primary motivation behind the most recent Thinket Kickstarter project called ("The Thinket Now, GEN 3.0), which was launched, funded, and successfully fulfilled in 2018.
* Please note that our new Thinket form-factors (each w/ solid Brass base-metal Handle) deliver the smoothest haptic actions of our available Thinkets to date.
The special new "thud" sensation is achieved by means of the custom-machined O-Ring grooves in the GEN 3.0 Slider-Heads; and several high-quality O-Rings are included with each Thinket Now for use with those grooves.
