If you think your computer keyboard stays free of grime and germs, you be wrong. Dust, food crumbs, sticky coffee stains, and other debris get trapped in the keys and below, and cleaning a keyboard is a nightmare. Logitech’s new K310 to the rescue. It’s a washable keyboard designed to be submerged in water so that cleaning it is as easy as doing the dishes.
The main two features that allow the K310 keyboard to be washed so easily are its durable design and drainage holes on the bottom. The keys are all laser printed and UV coated to protect them from fading after repeated cleanings. The tilt legs and overall frame are thick enough to withstand a bit of force and can resist most surface scratches. The drainage holes on the bottom allow for water to flush right through the keyboard along with any grime and then dry much more quickly.
The K310 isn’t dishwasher safe, so it needs to be hand-washed only in warm water no more than 30cm (11 inches) deep and 50°C (120°F). The keyboard also won’t stand up to and abrasive cloths or detergents, and the USB cable still needs to remain dry at all times. Having said that, it’s still a brilliant idea, and sure to be a good seller among office staff.
Logitech is currently selling the K310 keyboard for $39.99 through its website.
