Logitech introduces genius waterproof keyboard

Summary:For all the accident prone computer users out there, Logitech has come up with a waterproof keyboard to ease (some) of your multi-tasking pain.

Computers are designed to be used in an area free of debris and clear of liquids, in an ideal world. However computer users these days do not always have that luxury. Whether it is crumbs from a snack, your morning coffee (or if you're me, a glass of red wine), computers are not able to avoid the hazards of everyday life. That is why the Logitech Washable Keyboard is suited for modern times.

The keyboard comes ready to use, without any software needed with a standard layout including number pad and F-keys. It is made using laser printing and UV coating so that the letter won't fade after a wash. It can withstand a heavy dusting, or be submerged in up to 11 inches of water and comes with drainage holes in the back for convenient and speedy drying.

The keyboard is setting a new standard for modern electronics, it seems. Not only will future models need to be strong and sturdy, they will need to be ready for the beating that modern consumers give to their products. Next cane we get laptops in waterproof (or red wine proof) versions?
