Logitech comes clean with $40 washable keyboard

Logitech logoWe all know food, drink and technology don't mix, yet dusty and crumb-filled keyboards are rampant in households and offices across the world. To help out on the housekeeping front, Logitech today unveiled a new PC keyboard -- the Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 -- that could spell the end of the dirty QWERTY.

The K310, which Logitech says can tolerate anything from "a light dusting to a rinse in the kitchen sink," can be washed multiple times and can be submerged in up to 11 inches of water, and then left out to dry.

The keyboard has drainage holes at the back, and the characters are laser-printed and have a UV coating to prevent fading caused by water damage.

"We've all experienced that moment of distraction -- followed by panic, when a cup of coffee or a soda spills all over your keyboard," said Sophie Le Guen, senior director of mice and keyboards at Logitech, in a statement. "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 compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.

It is expected to be available across the United States this month with a suggested retail price tag of $39.99. The keyboard will get its European launch in October.
