Logitech have today revealed the Washable Keyboard K310, a full-size PC QWERTY keyboard that can safely be washed if it gets a bit…sticky.
With the exception of its USB connection, it can be submerged in up to 11 inches of water without doing it any damage, with drainage holes preventing the keyboard from collecting little soapy puddles. The key characters are also laser printed and UV coated, meaning they should survive a good scrubbing, with the thin-profile keyboard “durable, yet still comfortable”. A full suite of F-keys and short cut keys for volume, playback controls and applications, and a full-size numberpad, round off the K310.
“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.”
Life and its messes, eh? Well that’s one way of describing a late night, home alone web browsing session.
Those looking to save money on Kleenex tissues can pick up the K310 from October, priced £34.99.
