Drevo announced its next ultimate gaming keyboard, the BladeMaster, which is looking for financing in Kickstarter for a value of $20,000 with a term of 59 days, but this keyboard is so particular that, at the time of writing, it has already practically managed to raise $13,677.
The reason is quite simple, and is that the Drevo BladeMaster is not a mechanical keyboard with RGB lighting, but brings something new to the market thanks to a side wheel that is called Genius Knob, which can be programmed to make up to four additional actions completely customizable by software, so it is not only designed for gamers, but for programmers too.
As an example, they put the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, where yes, it is very easy to use the WASD keys, but the thing gets quite complicated when we need to touch additional keys where our hands need to be re-positioned to press them, either to use the energy drink, bandage, change the mode shooting or throwing us to the ground, something that is corrected with this wheel that promises to reduce the time of action required to perform such actions. For this it has a system of click, double click, and to be able to slide it up and down.
Otherwise, we are facing a completely wireless keyboard using 2.4 GHz technology with a response time of 1 millisecond and 1000 Hz, can be chosen with mechanical switches Cherry MX Red, Brown, Black and Speed Silver with RGB lighting, use it via Bluetooth 4.0 (compatible with Android and iOS), has a rechargeable battery of 4000 mAh capacity.
The Drevo BladeMaster can be pre-ordered on Kickstarter for 45 euros in its BladeMaster TE version (cable and Gateron RGB switches), while the above mentioned model, the BladeMaster Pro does it for 81 euros with delivery dates for August.
