Yesterday Logitech unveiled the K310 washable keyboard, which can be fully submerged for easy washing. Furthermore, the company says each key can be pushed up to five million times, making it durable as well.
From a light dusting to a rinse in the kitchen sink, this keyboard is easy to clean and easy to dry. It’s also designed for a comfortable typing experience with a familiar layout and sleek, thin profile.
The Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 can be hand washed time and time again, and can be submerged (with the exception of the USB cable) in up to 11 inches (28 cm) of water. Convenient drainage holes at the back of the keyboard allow for easy drying while key characters are laser printed and UV coated helping ensure the letters don’t fade in the wash. Plus, the keys can last up to five million keystrokes, meaning this keyboard can take a washing, as well as a pounding.
‚”We’ve all experienced that moment of distraction followed by panic, when a cup of coffee or a soda spills all over your keyboard,‚” says Reon Coetzee, Country Manager for Logitech South Africa. ‚”We all know that life happens, regardless of how careful you are you will spill, Logitech designed the Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 to look and function like new, even over time.‚”
Durable, yet still comfortable, this full-size keyboard’s contemporary design complements both your computer and your work space. It comes complete with F-keys and a number pad, and is compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. With twelve hot keys for instant access to Internet, e-mail, play, volume and more, you can readily open your most-used applications with a single keystroke. To make life even easier, this keyboard requires no software for setup, simply pull the device straight out of the box, plug it in and type away.

The Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 is expected to be available in South Africa from November 2012, for a suggested retail price of R599, 99. For more information please visit www.logitech.com or our blog.
