New Microsoft keyboard includes physical ‘Any’ key

With the accessibility focus at Microsoft continuing to accelerate the hardware division has begun experimenting with adding an ‘Any’ key to their keyboards. This key will work as most computer users would expect, when waking up the computer, escaping a CMD window or just a key to press when it appears Windows has frozen.

This key will be down toward the bottom of the key row. Maybe next to the ALT key or WIN key. The Qwerty keyboard is a standard all over the world, introducing a new key is never easy but these early prototypes being seeded to Insiders may give the insight Microsoft is looking for. Will consumers be confused or will this be a previously untapped market of potential?
