Dr. Sheldon Cooper approves this keyboard
If you're germophobe, you probably already know that the keyboard in your work/home office is a haven of microscopic critters that can make you sick. If you have to share a keyboard, the germs could be even more prevalent. Logitech has unveiled a new Washable Keyboard K310 that can be washed to eliminate germs and left over mess from spills.
“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.”
The keyboard is designed to survive being sprayed with water or even submerged in a kitchen sink for cleaning. The keyboard can be hand washed repeatedly and completely submerged, with the exception of the USB cable, in up to 11 inches of water with no damage. The keyboard has drainage holes at the back to ease drying. The key characters are laser printed and have a UV coating to keep them from fading when washed.
Logitech also says that the keys are good for up to 5 million keystrokes so it should last for years to come.
The keyboard is expected to launch this month in the US and in October for European customers at an MSRP of $39.99.

Logitech needs to make an actual gaming keyboard using mechanical keys. Their current gaming lineup uses rubber dome and cost just as much as a quality mechanical keyboard anyway.
I would go for a backlit keyboard that makes use of Cherry MX-Brown switches. Right now I alternate between my Blackwidow Ultimate (Blue switches) and MS Sidewinder X4 (dome).
Overclock.net has a great forum in regards to stuff like this.

I don't see a need for Logitech to make one when there are so many other good mechanical keyboards out there, not unless they can make one with their LCD info screens that also doesn't cost $200+.
