  1. More effeciant ways

    You could have the keys pop in and out like stiff lego or have them screw out. Any other ideas?

    • Concern about the arrow keys.

      As a current user of the Kinesis Ergo, and the 3M Renaissance Mouse, I am very much in-line with this concept. I am pretty concerned about the arrow keys not being accessible to anything but one thumb. Using the arrow keys in rapid succession is a very common gesture. Having to do that with one thumbs seems very awkward and slow.

      • trackball

        gaming grade trackball version. has to be gaming grade though because productivity trackballs just can compete against gaming mice. or maybe try trackpads.

            • Location of the control on alt keys

              Your best precedent for keyboard layout for this is the Kinesis Ergo Advantage keyboard, which I have been using for nearly 2 decades. One of the great advantages of the Kinesis keyboard is that is loads up both thumbs with the most important keys, including control and alt, and unloads the pinkies, which are the weakest and most awkward digits to use, especially in key combinations, like copy / paste. I want this keyboard / mouse thing to work, because I would likely be an early customer. With many years or experience with a similar key layout, the control keys…

                • In the programming software it would be great to see what the key is programmed to perform.

                  If I'm using keymouse in Solidworks I would like to keep the programming software open(screen two) so I can see what I have the button programmed for. When I switch to a new map I can quickly see what that layer is programmed for such as sketch, feature, assembly or drawing commands. If the programming software shows the key that it's programmed to duplicate that doesn't help me. I need to see the note that I would create with each key to know what command it is performing.

                    • Full-size function keys as additional top row

                      Add an additional row of full size keys at the top of each hand for the function keys, if you don't use them, you won't likely notice they're there. They look nearly impossible to use from a haptic position standpoint on the pointer finger to differentiate by position.

                      My biggest complaint with my Kinesis Advantage are the function keys, as someone who uses all the keyboard shortcuts, it becomes very difficult to target the smaller function keys, which appear to be larger than the ones that you're showing in your demo.

                      • Palm buttons

                        Ideally they would work like Shift/Command/Option/Control and toggle only for the length that held, or toggle permanently depending on programming of keyboard. You could map to Yellow/Blue Button Alternatives.

                        Added image of how it might be placed

                          • Have a showing.

                            I'm so interested in testing these but afraid to purchase without testing first. I type ALOT at work these seems like it would completely speed things up.

                            Where can I try them out?

                            • Use the second mouse to scroll (wheel)

                              Why do we need scroll wheels when you have a second mouse in your other hand?
                              I suggest configurable (so that left and right bias is accounted for), but that would allow the 2 hands to work in tandem.

                              • To DON'T have the buttons UNDER the thumbs... you have to REST the thumbs, not only the wrists...

                                There's TINY BUTTONS located UNDER the THUMBS, the product
                                DON'T give the option to REST the THUMBS, only the WRISTS...

                                The bigger button MAYBE useful...

                                  The idea on having my thumb "stuck" hurts even before testing it... that could make the keyboard very unconfortable

                                    I would still use an independent mouse.. this device is too big and probably too heavy for that porpouse
