We’ve all been there… A nervous twitch when the company director comes to introduce himself – or perhaps even more nerve-racking herself – to you for the first time, causing a cup of boiling hot coffee to get nervously tipped over, irretrievably damage the computer keyboard. Or the kids drinking orange juice precariously close to your laptop and by the time you go to move it, it’s too late, sticky, gooey juice churning its way into every orifice your keyboard cares to have.
These “nightmarish” potentialities of eternally damaging a keyboard could be eradicated forever with the Logitech Washable Keyboard K310.
Whether it’s a light dusting so that your keyboard’s in keeping with your shiny and dust-free computer room, or, for real cleaning addicts, a full dousing under the tap in the kitchen sink, the Washable Keyboard K310, with its barrage of drainage holes, laser printed and UV coated keys, is able to withstand up to an eleven inch submerge in water.
Asides from being washable, easy to dry and ultra-durable, Logitech’s latest keyboarding marvel is designed with comfortable typing in mind. How can a keyboard be ‘comfortable’ you may ask? Well the K310’s familiar layout means that users don’t spend precious minutes perplexedly searching for the ‘@’ key or blindly stumbling around to find the backspace. Being a full-sized keyboard that includes a number pad, K310 users don’t have to fumble about typing on inadequately sized keys and having ultra resilient keys that can withstand, Logitech informs, up to five million keystrokes, you can pound away at your keyboard without the fear of keys becoming loose and flying off.
Hot keys are a convenient component of modern keyboards, which, so long as you’re aware of them, can save you a significant amount of time. With twelve hot keys providing users with instant access to necessities such as volume, email and the internet, the K310 means you can access your most heavily frequented applications with a single keystroke.
So is a washable keyboard that is equipped with hordes of drainage holes and ultra hard-wearing keys stylish and aesthetically pleasing to the eye? Well Logitech assure us that with its thin profile and contemporary design, its newest keyboarding venture is sleek and good-looking, and so who are we to argue?
The Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 is expected to be available from October 2012 costing £34.99.
