TL;DR: We’ve been making steady progress with manufacturing, and we’re about to switch into high gear. We expect to deliver every non-module pre-order by the end of March or the beginning of April. Afterwards, we’ll transition to on-demand manufacturing.
Hi there, and welcome to our monthly status update! Let’s get right to it!
On February 27, we finally received the product boxes which were necessary to resume production, and we’ve shipped mini batches 55, 56, 57, and 58 since then.
Production has been mostly uninterrupted, except for a small shortage of foam parts that reside in the product boxes and protect your UHKs extremely well from any damage on the way. Luckily, we received plenty of foam parts today.
With the above issues out of the way, we expect to deliver every non-module pre-order by the end of March or the beginning of April, at which point we’ll transition to on-demand manufacturing.
On-demand manufacturing means that we’ll assemble orders as they come in. This translates to about a 0 to 5 working day delay from order to shipping depending on the actual demand.
Our current focus
Right now, our primary focus is to deliver every non-module pre-order, and streamline our operation. András is busy with the former, and I’m busy with the latter.
Improving our backend systems will allow us to devote the smallest amount of time possible to operational issues, and focus on R&D in general, and specifically the modules. So even though it’s not directly related to development, it will accelerate development, which is a prospect I’m really excited about.
The Twitterverse was eventful as usual featuring the following tweets:
6 months in a gotta give credit to @UltHackKeyboard – best I've ever used, an ergonomic wonder and a thought accelerator. I have a stack of fancy keyboards collected over many years and this one is 10x better than second place. Thanks @mondalaci pic.twitter.com/FHGk9sqsDA

We’ll be keeping you updated on all things UHK, and we’re looking forward to talking to you on 2019-04-18.
