Logitech's New Washable Keyboard Combats Fear of Spills

As someone with electronic equipment strewn around his room, I handle any open containers of water with the utmost care. And when liquid does happen to come in contact with an electronic device, I hit the panic button, knocking children and the elderly out of my way as I rush for a towel. When it comes to Logitech’s new keyboard, however, getting it wet isn’t a concern; in fact, it’s highly encouraged.

At first glance, Logitech’s new Washable Keyboard K310 seems like any old USB-connected keyboard. What makes it unique is the ability to submerge it in up to 11-inches of water without damaging it. That’s the “washable” part of their new washable keyboard. When it gets dirty (and it will get dirty), you can take it to the sink for a quick scrub down. It’s even outfitted with draining holes so that it won’t retain water. This also means that you don’t have to worry about ruining it with spilled drinks.

The keyboard, which boasts a number pad as well as hot-keys for things like Internet, e-mail, and volume control, will be available in the US and Europe in October and will retail for $39.99.
