Logitech‘s Washable Keyboard K310 has the familiar layout of the Logitech keyboards you may already use, but this one can take a dip in water. You can rinse it in the kitchen sink or wipe it with a wet cloth. Not only can the keyboard be submerged up to 11 feet, it dries easily, too.
I wonder if this keyboard can also survive the floods in the Philippines. Wouldn’t that be cool?
The keyboard can handle plenty of washing and use, according to Logitech. Characters are laser-printed and UV-coated, so they don’t fade after a cleaning. It is outfitted with drainage holes in the back of the keyboard to allow water to escape easily, and air to enter, to dry every part. The keyboard is also simple to set up: Just plug it in via USB, and you’re ready to work.
In addition to being able to hold its breath in shallow water, the keys are said to last for up to five million keystrokes each. The K310 will hit desks — and sinks — in the US later this month for $40 and is expected to cross the pond to Europe in October.
