One of the reasons I like the Keyboardio Model01 keyboard is the Any key in top left corner of the right half of the keyboard.

That's why I use one of these:

The typing is not a 'pleasant experience', but you clean it in 2 minutes and you don't worry if you spill some of your drink on it.

@manuelcaeiro I prefer to use the keyboard that's given me the best typing experience, and that I can take apart to clean; 😀

@liw now i really want to know what keysym that sends

@Anarcat By default a random printable character. Any key, including the any key, can be programmed to be anything, though.

@liw OK seriously, what's the scancode of that thing? what keycode does it map to?

@oblomov By default it triggers a function in the keyboard firmware that produces a random printable character. I've not looked at the detail in depth, though the firmware source code is available. See for links to the code.

If @obra or @algernon aren't busy, they may confirm or correct me.

@liw @oblomov It's a macro (see here for its source)!

It produces a random lower-case letter. It's a very unique feature of the Model01, and I love it.
