Regardless of the number of keys you can actually press, this still guarantees that you won't have key blocking with any random combination of keys, up to the 6 key maximum.
The problem is I need more then 6 key presses at the same time. I am seeing ps/2 being slowly phased out on motherboards today, with them only offering a combination KB/mouse port instead of both now. I think the approach of making the keyboard appear as two is a way around it, if someone gets it working well.
Does anyone know if this is being worked on at least? I'm afraid that the average consumer is too ignorant to care, and the money may just not be there to perfect it. It looks like Daskeyboard has ditched their dual-keyboard attempt with their latest model, due to the issues the older one caused.
