This involves replacing the basic PS/2 brain in the keyboard with a new USB-capable one. Additional features I'd like to add to the keyboard:

  • Multiple user-defined key maps that can be uploaded via USB and easily toggled between on the fly
  • A TrackPoint module (below N and to the left of the up arrow) and some thumb-operated mouse buttons (below Enter and Space)
  • Media control keys - both transport control (Play/Pause/Stop/Next/Prev) and volume control
  • The ability to cut the keyboard in half and move the two pieces independently, with a tether between them
  • Maybe even replace/augment the thumb buttons with something more akin to the DataHand's thumb configuration (modifiers on the sides?)
