Key cluster molds are ready

Subject: Key cluster molds are ready

Hi there, and welcome to the monthly UHK status update!

TL;DR: The molds of the key cluster module are ready. Machining of the right-side module molds is in progress. The design of the module plastic parts has taken more time than anticipated, and as a result, we expect to start shipping the modules in September.

The key cluster molds are finally ready, and the molded plastic parts look great:

Now, our contractor is working on the right-side module molds:

The right-side module molds are expected to be ready around the end of August, and we plan to start shipping the modules in September.

We’ve been working on the modules as hard as we could, but despite our best effort, the ETA had to be updated because the design of the module plastic parts has taken more time than anticipated. We believe that the updated September ETA is realistic, and we’ll do our best to hit it.

We’ll be keeping you updated on a monthly basis, and feel free to change your shipping address any time.

Reviews and tweets

Wildcat’s UHK review is a special one as he doesn’t say a single word, and yet, he tells much more than most reviewers. It’s an unusually enjoyable video which I highly recommend watching.

You guys keep sending your awesome tweets and posts, and we’re always eager to read and feature them. If you got your UHK, please share your love!

We’ll be keeping you updated on all things UHK, and are looking forward to talking to you on 2020-08-14.
