why the fuck do touch buttons exist outside of touchscreens

like thanks for these very sexy uber modern headphones, i love lightly brushing them with my finger tips and powering them off

what a sleek tv design. i heartily enjoy fumbling around in low light for the power button because having a mechanical or just like even visable button didn't fit your #aesthetic

touch buttons work if the whole fucking thing with the button moves around if it's a stationary part of a machine what the fuck are you doing

@myconidiosyncrasy Yeah I've just moved to a new house and I've benefited so much from tactile dots, little stick-on dots meant to help blind people identify and locate stuff around the house. The dryer has touch buttons, the oven hood has touch buttons, so many weird things that have no business having touch buttons have them now.

I mean, I don't want everyone to be dragged down to my level where even sighted people would benefit from the tactile dots. But, anyone can buy them!
