Someone made a washable keyboard! Yay for common sense!

John Moe Aug 23, 2012

And of course it was Logitech that made it. Not to praise that company unduly or anything, it’s just that it’s a logical thing to have done, right? Your keyboard gets your grubby fingers whacking on it all day, maybe you’ve had a muffin or some chips while typing, maybe a little bit of coffee spills. Because you’re a HUMAN BEING, you know?

From PCMag:

Designed to stand up to the stresses that lay lesser keyboards low, the Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 can be submerged in up to 11 inches of water, washed with soap and water, and otherwise soaked and splashed. Though it is hand washable, you’ll want to keep it out of the dishwasher, because while the keyboard can be safely submerged, the USB cable isn’t waterproofed. The back of the keyboard has holes for draining off liquid and convenient air drying.
The keyboard is also dust resistant, and a brush attached to the keyboard lets you easily sweep off crumbs and dust. Beyond being easy to clean, the Washable Keyboard K310 should hold up under heavy use—each key is rated to last up to five million keystrokes.

It sells for $39.99 and now I can only hope that Logitech can make a laptop or a smartphone. Get on it, you heroes.
