Known Issues Currently Being Fixed - Will be solved with Software & Firmware Updates:
1. When writing key layouts to the KeyMouse Devices with the KeyMouse Software, it writes only to the primary device plugged into the computer (cannot yet program the secondary device through the primary).  You will need to plug secondary device directly into the computer (making it primary temporarily) to program it.
2. Although the devices are capable of 10+ layers (a lot more), the software can currently write 6.
3. Some multimedia key types are still being added to the firmware (pause, play, volume up/down).
4. Backlight currently adjust on a per-hand basis (we still need to make it sync).  Easy work-around by programming backlight buttons on each hand for now.
5. Mouse DPI commands not supported yet for speeding up and slowing down mouse cursor while keys are held down.  Mouse freeze does work.
6. Advanced feature: mouse motion translating into keys is still in progress, although mouse motion can translate into scroll commands (for scrolling on KeyMouse Track with the trackball).
7. If you move the devices around (mouse motion) while saving key layouts to the devices, it will cause the primary/secondary devices to get out of sync and stop responding, and you will have to unplug and plug them back in.  Just hold them very still after you click Save to Devices for now.
We will release software & firmware updates soon to address these.  We're using the devices ourselves as our primary input devices, and they are working well for us so far.

 

Our target users are those that spend pretty much all day at the computer.  We've developed many features specifically with this in mind.  Our primary goal is to increase user efficiency and comfort.  Here are a few of our key features:

  • Genuine Cherry MX Mechanical Key Switches
    If you're not familiar with mechanical switches, they are much higher quality than typical keyboards. Cherry keys are manufactured in Germany with high precision. They have a premium feel that lasts up to 50 million presses per key.
    For more details on the Cherry MX switches, see article: Cherry MX Switch Types

  • Fully Re-programmable Keys
    You can change the function every key and button on KeyMouse Alpha (including the commands for scrolling up and scrolling down on the scroll wheel for both left/right hands).  There are 6 key layers that can be saved into the devices.

  • Diodes on Every Key & Button for Anti-Ghosting
    Each key has it's own circuit board with a diode to prevent ghosting.

  • High Resolution 12000 DPI Mouse Sensors (Both Hands)
    You can program keys to adjust the speed/DPI of left/right or both hands.  We have many options such as adjusting speed while a key is held down (and it reverts back to previous speed when key is up), adjust speeds faster, or slower, etc.

  • Compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux
    Our software is compiled and tested for Windows/Mac.  We also have software for Ubuntu Linux (Beta).  Due to the various flavors of Linux, sometimes Linux is less compatible for the software, but the devices should connect and operate fine.  You just might need to connect to Windows or Mac to re-program the keys if the software isn't working for you. 

  • Custom 3 Color Key Caps
    Our key caps have white, blue, and yellow colors on them to show the various key layers (particularly for number pad and arrows).

  • Ceramic Feet
    We now use Ceramic Feet for much smoother glide on the mouse pad or desk.  We recommend use with hard top mouse pads or surfaces.

  • Four Sizes Available
    We want KeyMouse to fit your hands as closely as possible since it's important for your hands to be comfortable with all keys within reach when operating keyboard & mouse at the same time.

  • Angle of "K" key (middle finger on home row) is 8 degrees side to side

  • Weight - One device (such as Right Hand only) weighs approx. 8.3 oz (235 g)

  • Backlighting for Cherry Key Switches
