There’s this one keyboard in my house that is just nasty. I mean, the years of food, drink, greasy fingers, and not being cleaned didn’t do anything to helps its cause. It’s pretty much beyond cleaning at this point, unless you were to take out each key, individually clean it, then reassemble it. At that point, I think we can all agree it’s time for a new one. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll pick up the Washable Keyboard from Unotron. It won’t quite clean itself, but it makes it easier for you to do it yourself.
If you were to take water or any type of liquid to your current keyboard, well, nothing good would happen. Not with this keyboard, though. It has SpillSeal technology to protect it from liquids and dust. You can actually wash this in the tap water from your sink. You’re still going to have to take the initiative and actually clean your keyboard though, a task that’s to much to ask for some people. (you know who you are :;))
This company, Unotron, makes two other washable products for your computer. There’s the washable mouse and the Smartcard reader. At first, I thought the Smartcard reader was for SD, MemoryStick, xD cards, but it’s actually for Smartcards. Imagine that.
The products are a bit expensive, but remember you’re paying a premium for the SpillSeal technology. The keyboard is $50 ($45 without hotkeys), the mouse is $50 (there’s a $70 one too), and the Smartcard reader is the cheapest of them all at $25.
