Logitech releases new washable keyboard

Spills and splashes are no match for Logitech's latest keyboard, the scrubbable, submergable, spill-proof, K310 Keyboard. This white-keyed washable device is designed to withstand the rigours of life, from greasy fingers to downpours of coffee.

The Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 can be submerged in up to 28cm of water, washed with soap and water, and otherwise soaked and splashed. Though it is hand washable, you'll want to keep it out of the dishwasher, because while the keyboard can be safely submerged, the USB cable isn't waterproofed. The back of the keyboard has holes for draining off liquid and convenient air drying.

The keyboard is also dust resistant, and a brush attached to the keyboard lets you easily sweep off crumbs and dust. Beyond being easy to clean, the Washable Keyboard K310 should hold up under heavy use - each key is rated to last up to five million keystrokes.

The Logitech Washable K310 is full-size, with a two-toned black and white color scheme. The individual keys are also laser printed and then UV coated to prevent fading and keep the bright white keys looking new. Silicone dome switches offer waterproof key mechanisms, and a low-profile design with floating keycaps keeps the keyboard slim while providing a comfortable typing experience.

The full keyboard is joined by a numeric pad and F-keys, and 12 hotkeys for controlling volume and media playback, launching Web browser or email, and accessing other applications. The K310 is compatible with Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP, and with plug-and-play functionality, there's no need to download special software. Logitech covers the K310 with a three-year warranty.

The keyboard is available to pre-order now through, priced £34.99.
