I'm looking to build a custom split keyboard with joysticks. I read that joysticks will probably be supported in the next generation. How easy will that be for me to implement (in software), and what kind of customization is available? I have looked at using QMK, but that looks like a bit more than I want to dig into at the moment, and this hardware/firmware seems to have some options built in that I would like to use.

Thanks for your help.

Our new PCB and components should make it reasonably easy to do this. Just keep an eye out for when our new PCB is available. We hope others will use our components to create their own custom devices (and even sell them to their own customer bases). Customizing the software should not be too difficult. We will open up more documentation on this, but it's designed with the idea in mind of many types of devices. There are PNG files for the device images, and .JSON files for the key locations. Some of the formats could change with the new PCB, but the general structure will be the same.

Hi, did you ever make any progress on implementing a joystick on your keymouse? I've been trying to figure out if it's possible to add one to use for gaming -- even if it meant connecting it to the PC independently and somehow attaching it to the body of the keymouse (I have the older trackball model)

Hi Nathan. In our new PCB, we have added pins that are capable of a joystick. We are currently working out bugs on our current KeyMouse products and haven't gotten around to adding the software functionality yet. It is in the works, but we can't say when it might be available.
