Inspiration

HyperFuse is the set created by BunnyLake.  Drawing inspiration from his favorite aspects of this hobby along with other factors that influenced his life, the original GB aimed to take a no compromise approach, in which it was successfully launched in 2 different keycap profiles in the colors he had envisioned.  However, there was one thing that was not quite perfect; the only compromise was that it wasn't in Cherry profile. The set was launched at a time where GMK as a manufacturer had restrictions that made it considerably more difficult to run community driven GB. Furthermore, it was even more difficult to run custom color sets with the massive MOQ they required. As this hobby grew and the barrier and restrictions with GMK lowered, it created an easier opportunity to recreate the set. That experience however, was still all about compromise. The set was recreated, but in terms of layout and design, as well as colors, the set was more of an approximation of HyperFuse rather than the original set. This is the reason why it gives BL great pleasure to finally introduce the set he had envisioned many years ago, with the original HyperFuse colors, in Cherry profile, produced by GMK.  For the first time, truly without compromise -- HyperFuse Origins.

Past, Present, and Future

When Originative first re-launched GMK HyperFuse, the crowd cheered. HyperFuse is such a great colorway that we wanted to keep it as a staple by creating variations of it. We even tried to re-imagine the set in a retro color form, using the Olivetti's grey bodies. Finally, we had the chance to meet with the people at GMK again, and I personally handed them original HyperFuse sample colors. After awaiting for various rounds of samples, we were finally able to turn it into HyperFuse Origins. There will always be a future for HyperFuse at Originative, but the Origins is the past, present, and future.
