For those who snack while they work, Logitech has developed a Washable Keyboard. The K310 can still work after being submerged in up to 11" of water. It features two holes for drainage on the back and has UV-coated, laser printed keys that will not fade. Plug into a USB port and play with no extra software needed. The keyboard is pretty much standard with 12 shortcut hotkeys, always a nice bonus.
