If you’ve ever owned a keyboard that you use every day for a year (or a week, if you’re a klutz who insists on eating chips, pizza, and cupcakes while you work), then you should really check out your keyboard closely. We just did… and it really gets pretty nasty between the keys. And sometimes over the keys themselves (in our case, in the form of a yellowish Cheeto stain over the E key). For people who can’t stand the dirt, the grime, the dust, the occasional Cheeto-stain buildup, or the thought of ants and cockroaches, here’s the perfect keyboard: Logitech just introduced the Washable Keyboard K310.
The name pretty much serves as the description, but in case you didn’t get it (or the above photo that shows it being washed), the K310 is a keyboard that was designed to be cleaned as thoroughly as you want. Built with laser-printed characters on the keys (that won’t fade) and drain holes along the edges, the keyboard is built to take on water, a bit of soap, and a reasonable amount of abuse with robust tilt legs and scratch-resistant exterior.
Past that, the Washable Keyboard K310 is a pretty normal USB keyboard that some would say even looks good with its white-on-black color scheme. Past the regular layout, the keyboard also offers a number of shortcuts for quickly accessing the net, your email, volume controls, or your medial player.
It’s currently up for pre-order on Logitech’s site for $39.99.
