DREVO BladeMaster - World's Most Versatile Keyboard Featuring Programmable Knob - 700% Funded on Kickstarter

2018-05        Source: DREVO

The global keyboard community needs revolutionary offerings frequently to keep dynamic, and that's why DREVO has brought out its ultra innovative gaming keyboard BladeMaster just at the right time. It has been hotly discussed worldwide shortly after its first day being launched on Kickstarter. Project Link:

At the very beginning, BladeMaster's various eye-catching features are the key that has magically lured almost any keyboard enthusiast to join such hot discussions, but what really impresses the community deeply now is its huge success on Kickstarter. Getting 700% funded with over 1,000 backers during its first several days without any advertising is the simple fact that convincingly speaks for its uniqueness and practical value. BladeMaster separates itself from other gaming keyboards for too many superior points. Simply put, no matter what scenarios and custom functions you want it for, it may perfectly suit your needs right there. Please check out the below content for a brief insight:

Programmable Genius-Knob

DREVO BladeMaster has two versions (PRO and TE) and they are both equipped with a Genius-Knob. It is a great progress in the keyboard field made by DREVO for overcoming many structure designing challenges as we have to consider the full compatibility with many other inside components when locating a knob vertically at a keyboard’s left edge. This kind of locating differentiates BladeMaster from most others on the market not just for a unique looking, but more for solving a real problem as we see it brings a lot of convenience to the group of users who want to realize more possibilities by using their left hands only.

Besides common functions including backlight and multimedia controlling, this genius-knob can be programmed for four additional actions based on its system of click, double click, and to be able to slide it up and down. Each action can be remapped as any key, combo and even a macro functionality.

The 4 default commands of the Genius-knob are PageUp, PageDown, Home, and End. By entering "Key Settings", you can assign any operation to the knob. Taking the example of PUBG, you can get superior functions by assigning this way: Energy Drink - PageUp, Bandage - PageDown, First Aid Kit - Home, and Painkiller - End.

Best Option as Real Top-end Versatile Mechanical Keyboard

DREVO BladeMaster PRO has three ways to be connected, which means in addition to USB type-C, when it comes to the wireless connectivity, it still has two options - Bluetooth 4.0 and 2.4GHz Wireless connection. In comparison with similar professional wireless keyboards on the market like Logitech G613 and Corsair K63, what takes DREVO BladeMaster to the next level is that it's the special one that supports RGB backlight and USB wired connection at the time. These features do make BladeMaster a real top-end mechanical gaming keyboard.

Mainly positioned as an ultimate gaming keyboard, BladeMaster PRO features a self-developed connecting tech called FlashLink. By adopting frequency-hopping tech and achieving a report rate of 1000Hz, FlashLink allows gamers to game in 2.4GHz wireless mode just as same as via USB wired connection with equivalent report rate and stability.

To enjoy the FlashLink tech in wireless mode, we need to use the USB receiver that is included in BladeMaster PRO's package. You can simply access the fast wireless connection instantly after getting the receiver inserted into your computer and you have no need for any other operation.

In addition, users can use 2.4GHz wireless, Bluetooth 4.0 and USB wired connection to connect three different devices, let’s say, USB to the desktop, 2.4GHz wireless to the notebook, Bluetooth to the mobile phone. Also, hot-swapping can be performed between these three devices with the combination of FN + PRTSC/SCRLK/PAUSE. Particularly suitable for the office scenario: 2 computers and 1 mobile phone.

Cloud & On-Board Storage to Keep Everything with you Anytime and Anywhere

Besides the cloud software that can help you save your settings, BladeMaster PRO & TE both have a 16MB on-board storage which can store three of your custom configurations including lighting effect, key customization, and macro. With it, you will be able to freely to attend any offline activities and enjoy your personal settings at once even with no need to download the DPC software.

Also, 8 keyboard layouts are available for a wide range of gamers globally: US/UK/IT/DE/FR/ES/JP/KR

More Backers More Surprises!

As DREVO's first try without much preparation and research on Kickstarter, such funding progress has been quite beyond our initial expectation, so DREVO would like to keep very low profits and try to offer more rewards back to the backers. We are truly grateful to any kind of support from our supporters. Here below are the high-quality keycaps that will be arranged as extra rewards for BladeMaster backers if the stretch goals can be made in the coming days.
