UniKeyboard, or Unique Keyboard is born out of a reddit thread when I realised my location advantage and my particular set of skills will allow me to provide custom DIY keyboard kits to everyone at a much more reasonable price. UniKeyboard was formed as a one man company in September 2014 when I finally released the first generation Diverge, a split keyboard design, since then, I have been making keyboard kits and providing them to the masses. Several of my friends and family help from time to time including a designer friend and my father.

I am Blahlicus and I am pretty much running UniKeyboard by myself with some extra help. I first discovered mechanical keyboards after my audiophile friend introduced me to his Filco Majestouch 2 (full sized), he had blue switches and I like it a lot, fast forward a few months and I got myself a cheapo $60USD full sized keyboard from monoprice when they still had the ones with genuine Cherry MX switches. After that, it was the summer holidays and I had some free time, so I tried my hands on creating a custom keyboard, and here we are.

I am born, raised, and located in Hong Kong, I lived in California for a few years before moving back. Being located in Hong Kong is extremely beneficial as I have a very close proximity to Mainland China and as such, have much better access to resources, manufacturers, and suppliers from them, meaning I could create and provide keyboard kits at a much more reasonable price. I speak and write Chinese, English, and Japanese, so that opens up a wide range of people that I could communicate with.
