Logitech is a name that has never left our desks and workbenches even at this age of ultra portability and vanishing individual input devices which it has proved again with its new Logitech Washable Keyboard K310.
Logitech currently experiencing hi-times due to increasing demands for Laptops & Tablets and thus falling demands for its products seemed unperturbed. At IFA 2012, giants busy with their innovations and flooding next generation devices like Samsung Galaxy Camera, Sony VAIO Duo 11 and various Windows Phone 8 devices, Logitech was in no way lagging behind. It hit an ace with a new revolutionary keyboard that everyone aspired for but never attempted at manufacturing “Logitech Washable Keyboard K310″, that loves a wash!
All of us have awful experience at times with littered and dirty keyboards. Sometimes due to spillage, drinks and littered food. A study in 2008 has revealed that a key board has 150 times more bacteria content than permitted and that is nearly 5 times that of a typical lavatory seat!! Not to mention Keyboards at public places, gross. So finally, Logitech has come up with a solution that is Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 shipped for just $39.99. Now geeks can go around spilling beverages and food stuff anywhere on the keyboard they like.
This revolutionary Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 will hit desks and dive into sinks in the US later this month for $39.99

The back of the Keyboard contains vents which will help exit of water and will facilitate easy drying. It has a small brush clipped to the rear which may be used for dusting small amounts of dirt off the keyboard.
It has a USB connector with a cap to prevent water from entering. The cable measures 5.9 ft. or 1.8 M long and supports UPnP so no software is required to use Logitech Washable Keyboard K310.
Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 uses the Rubber Dome Technology, a bit of theory about rubber dome can be specified as “A dome-switch keyboard works when a finger depresses the dome to complete the circuit. Rubber dome switches are commonly referred to as polydomes.” The picture of Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 below shows a flexible piece of silicone that contains a dome and under it is a thin piece of sealed plastic which actually contains a metal switch. When a key is pressed, the dome is collapsed and hence it connects the two circuit traces and completes the connection to enter the character.
For even better and cleaner treatment of the Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 one can remove the keys and then proceed with cleaning.
The company claims that Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 can withstand 5 million key strokes, amazing!
