Campaign stats

So far 819 keyboards have been pre-ordered - here is the breakdown of the options requested:

ANSI is the clear winner regarding the Layout.

No surprise here: The most ordered Keycap Printing is for the Linux configuration. And then it’s a close fight between Mac and Windows.

Blues & Browns dominate the scene here, accounting for 75% of total boards.

We are working hard on the UHK to make sure we provide a truly unique and high quality offering. We will keep you updated on our progress.

If you have any questions, please ask us!
