I was browsing through the gallery and looking at the previous iterations of KeyMouse Alpha, with more rows and columns of keys. I understand how one of the reasons the number of keys was reduced was the massive weight of the device and subsequent friction. Now that ceramic feet are about to become available, that drastically reduce the friction (my KeyMouse Alpha glides almost too well), would it be an idea to bring back some more rows of keys, perhaps as a 'KeyMouse Alpha Max' product?

Coming from other keyboards, I also felt that the Alpha lacked enough keys.

I've been slowly changing my mind on this topic.

Keeping hands in "home row position" is a far more important thing (for speed, etc.) than the number of keys. With the Alpha, I can easily get everything that I need in 4 layers, and for 99% of my work, I can do it all in two layers (white + blue).

As a result, I ended up taking a lot of the physical keys off of my Track keyboards, so that I wouldn't try to stretch reach any keys, and it improved dramatically as a result.

Andri Xhitoni, we have actually been working on a new variation of the Alpha that will have more keys. I am not sure how soon it will be released yet, but hopefully soon.
