    We do have DVORAK keys, also. KeyMouse is fully programmable, so this is definitely an option.

    Based on our testing, it's much more comfortable at the thumb. In the previous front position, it was not comfortable to reach the wheel without moving your hand. After a little time, it is normal and natural with the thumb.

    Yes, the devices are currently able to do as you describe. You can program any key to do the following:
    1. Enable the Mouse
    2. Disable the Mouse
    3. Toggle Mouse Enable/Disable
    4. Toggle Mouse Enable/Disable while key is held down
    5. Adjust DPI/Speed of the mouse (many options here also, such as only while the key is held down, etc.)

    The switch on the bottom is just for convenience in case you have all keys programmed for other things.

    Good comments. I use KeyMouse on both Windows and Mac. I currently just re-map the CTRL and Command keys using Settings in the Mac. Either way, KeyMouse is fully reprogrammable using our software however a user prefers. All key remapping stores directly into the device, and the more advanced macros are stored and executed within our software. There are 6 FN layers available in KeyMouse. Any key you want can be programmed as Eject, or other system functions. We have a lot of control over FN layers, such as activating the layer while the key is held down, or toggling on/off the layer each time the key is pressed.

    I currently use KeyMouse for programming (which is actually my primary background of 19+ years) as well as graphics design, spreadsheets, and general computer use such as email. I created KeyMouse primarily because of my frustration switching between the keyboard and mouse while programming (much of my programming also includes UI design and running graphics programs).

    When using KeyMouse, we have a "Mouse Freeze" feature that will freeze the cursor position while you move the physical KeyMouses back to a comfortable position. This removes the need to pick up the device and re-center, as many do with mice on their mouse pads when they reach the edge. It takes a little time to get used to it, but it works very well, and becomes second nature.

    As for trackball, I don't see the conflicting information you mention. As the FAQ states, we are planning to build a trackball version in the future. The Blog shows some of the development that is happening behind the scenes.

    No RGB currently. Possibly in a future versions. Thanks for the input.

    Yes, you can fully program that layer to add keys on the left side, also. The layouts shown are just the defaults, but can be fully customized. There are up to 6 programmable layers that will store in the device at one time. You can save unlimited layers in the software, but 6 at a time stored directly in the device.

    @JWB
    Yes the key caps are removable and can be re-arranged. KeyMouse uses custom key caps that we designed, which are slightly smaller than standard key caps to help keep the device from getting too big. We don't want the device to be too bulky to use as a mouse. We are also thinking of a version of KeyMouse that can use less keys and full size key caps (one less row, and one less column and use key combinations). Using our new KeyMouse Kit making these alternate versions will be much easier, and we can easily test and collect feedback using 3D printed housings and all the same core components.

    Yes, we will be making this adjustment.

    Our new KeyMouse Kit will allow us to do a trackball. It will be a separate version of KeyMouse than our main one. We're excited about our new kit/platform because it is much more versatile, and allows us to create multiple versions of KeyMouse more easily. We will let you know when we have our first KeyMouse ready.

    We have a source on the trackballs (34mm, very nice) similar to the Logitech Trackman. We are creating a custom trackball module for our KeyMouse kit.

    Personally, I have not used trackballs in the past, but I actually think once you have 2 of them (one in each hand) it's a game changer, and I possibly would switch. While re-centering your thumb on the ball, you can keep the mouse moving with the other thumb. Lot's of possibilities.

    Hi Julian. I see your point with the arrow keys. The smaller keys you are referring to are not the primary arrow keys but are more of a backup (and may possibly be removed). If you look at the layout the primary arrow keys are on the home row (intended to be activated by FN Blue) so that your hand can stay in typing position. If you want you can re-arrange the keys how you like, and reprogram them, also.
    Thanks for your input and we hope to create a product you are happy with.

    We don't know yet. We are working through manufacturing challenges. If you'd like you can subscribe to our newsletter at www.keymouse.com, and we'll notify you when it's available to order.

    We will be exhibiting at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in January 2016. You could try them there. Eventually we plan to get them in Best Buy and places like that so users can try before they buy, but obviously that will have to come after we have finished our first production run. Right now we just have 5 sets of prototypes.

    @John Topping

    We haven't experimented with memory foam. Our first prototypes had a rubbery material on the palm rest - which I thought was pretty nice. It made it easier to move the KeyMouse™ because of the added grip.

    Yes, this is being implemented with the updated design.

    @JohnTopping

    Right now we are planning to use mini-USB for a connector that is physically stronger. Some users have asked for micro-USB because many devices have micro-USB so there's lots of cables out there. We'll discuss this with the team.

    @John Topping
    According to our power usage estimates, the battery charge should last for several months before requiring another charge. We haven't confirmed this through actual testing - and our new prototypes will have some changes. So we'll need to run new estimates and perform some real testing once we have the new prototypes done. Wireless charging and/or dock charging is a great idea that we may offer at some point.

    We are planning to have the little bumps on the J and F keys.

    If you're talking about the small keys in the thumb area, we are planning to angle those keys and add bumps on a few of the keys so you can identify the keys by touch.

    Only the laser turns off when you switch off the "mouse" switch, so that you can still use the buttons (or have them reprogrammed for something else).
