Logitech Unveils Washable Keyboard

Anyone with kids, or perhaps a job where you eat at your desk, knows that food and keyboards don’t mix. In fact, they can get pretty sticky and crumb-filled if you don’t clean them regularly. Besides using a gas duster or wiping it with an electronics-friendly cloth, there’s no easy way to thoroughly sanitize your keyboard.

Enter Logitech‘s Washable Keyboard K310, unveiled on Wednesday. It has the familiar layout of the Logitech keyboards you may already use, but this one can take a dip in water. You can rinse it in the kitchen sink or wipe it with a wet cloth. Not only can the keyboard be submerged up to 11 inches, it dries easily, too.

The keyboard can handle plenty of washing and use, according to Logitech. Characters are laser-printed and UV-coated, so they don’t fade after a cleaning. Holes in the back of the keyboard let water escape easily, and air enter, to dry every part. The keyboard is also simple to set up: Just plug it in, and you’re ready to work.

It’s compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.

The Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 is expected to be available across the U.S. starting in August for a suggested retail price of $39.99. It will be available in Europe this October.
