MT8 Small Linear Thermoelectric Actuator - Honeywell UK Heating Controls
MT8 Small Linear Thermoelectric Actuator

Jenny Odell: How to Do Nothing
This is real. The living, breathing bodies in this room are real. I am not an avatar, a set of preferences, or some smooth cognitive force. I’m lumpy, I’m an animal, I hurt sometimes, and I’m different one day to the next. I hear, I see, and I smell things that hear, see, and smell me.

As the body disappears, so too does our ability to empathize. Berardi suggests a link between our senses and our ability to make sense
...
I’m suggesting that we protect our spaces and our time for non-instrumental, non-commercial activity and thought, for maintenance, for care, for conviviality. And I’m suggesting that we fiercely protect our human animality against all technologies that actively ignore and disdain the body, the bodies of others, and the body of the landscape that we inhabit.

Recommendation on new switches? : ErgoDoxEZ
This is that Reddit post where that fellow was asking about keyswitches since he has a newborn baby. (And where you recommended trying Zilents.)
