Logitech has come out with a $40 keyboard that doesn't mind a good bath every now and then. The Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 is, as the name suggests, a washable keyboard that you can submerge in up to 11 inches of water (don't dunk the USB cord though) to clean away those coffee spills, donut crumbs, and any other cruft that may have built up on the keys.
There are drainage holes on the back to allow for easy drying, and the keycaps are laser printed and UV coated so they won't fade after repeated scrubbings.
"We’ve all experienced that moment of distraction – followed by panic, when a cup of coffee or a soda spills all over your keyboard," says Sophie Le Guen, senior director of mice and keyboards at Logitech. "Because life and its messes will happen, regardless of how careful you are, Logitech designed the Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 to look and function like new, even over time."
We haven't played with one ourselves, but taking a peek at Logitech's high resolution image library, it looks fairly comfortable for a standard plank with a full-size numpad and F-keys.
The Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 will be available to purchase this month in the U.S. and Europe.
