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.

Unicomp "model m"

I spilled a throwback dew on my Unicomp keyboard. It got down into the keys. I took out to the kitchen and ran the faucet through it to about a minute. Still works fine. That was two years ago.
I've also put cheap keyboards in the dish washer with no issues.
