DREVO has launched a Kickstarter campaign for its breakthrough gaming keyboard named BladeMaster, featuring a programmable knob and some self-developed techs. As a forum-based team that has spent 14-month on this project and gathered suggestions from thousands of users, obviously there should be some surprises waiting for us to explore.

When we say “programmable knob” to a keyboard, some people may think of it memeable. But DREVO seems like not making jokes to anyone as we can be really amazed how powerful this knob truly is. Physically, you can rotate the knob forward/backward or perform single/double-click operations, and each action can be mapped to a certain command of your choice. So, one knob is equal to four custom functions. Now you might be wondering, what are the commands that you can map it to? The answer to that is infinite, and it is made possible through DREVO’s in-house software which is bundled with the keyboard, that takes customizability to a whole new level.
Ultra Gaming Keyboard
As an ultimate gaming keyboard, no doubt how this genius-knob helps a gamer defeat others is the first context we are dying to know. Firstly we may need to know the 4 default functions are PageUp, PageDown, Home & End separately. Then when we enter “Key Settings” section via the DREVO’s universal software(DREVO Power Console or DPC), you can assign your wanted operations freely. Taking the example of PUBG, we can do it this way to get a much smoother gaming experience: Energy Drink – PageUp, Bandage – PageDown, First Aid Kit – Home, Painkiller – End. There are also some videos on our Kickstarter page for similar demonstrations.
Since the knob is located on the left-hand side, it solves the problem of switching hands between the mouse and keyboard for complex key combinations. This is especially difficult during tense gaming situations when the mouse requires total control and there is no choice but to let the opponent take over. With the BladeMaster’s programmable knob, this problem never arises. It is almost like a third hand which can do all the complex operations, while you can have complete control over the mouse to have an upper hand at all times.
Excellent Productivity Tool
Nobody in this world games throughout their life no matter how amazing their gaming keyboard is. So, a keyboard has to perform well in all scenarios to be an all-rounder. When it comes to office work, DREVO BladeMaster is an excellent productivity tool! Your basic needs like being fully compatible with Mac & PC are taken care of. Also, with the PRO version, you can connect up to three devices simultaneously and switch between them very easily. Besides, the more complicated functions you need to perform, the more helpful the BladeMaster becomes. If you are a programmer, you can just write a batch script and assign it to any key you want via software. At the end of the day, you will be surprised by the amount of customization available at your fingertips and realize how accessible everything is through our DPC software.
