The Keyboard That Hates Bacteria But Loves Water

Seal Shield was first on the scene with their $50 dishwasher-safe keyboards and now they've just released their second gen waterproof keyboards, the Silver Seal keyboards. Both washable and antimicrobial, this keyboard is perfect for all the germaphobes in your life who cringe knowing their keyboards harbor more bacteria than a toilet seat. Silver Seal keyboards are made with antimicrobial plastic that uses all natural, pure silver ions to help kill contaminants . . . they will also withstand hot water and suds for those who need extra reassurance that the creepy crawly germs are all gone. These $70 rare keyboards will soon make their way to store shelves.

How does it feel if you try typing fast on it? Is it comfortable/responsive?

i saw this at the bookstore the other day. i think they'd be great for public spaces, but i am not concerned about bacteria so much at home.

I like the idea of this being water-proof and I've considered getting one of them before. However, I'm actually against all these antibacterial products being marketed to homes. All we're doing is encouraging resistant bacteria strains to flourish and killing off the good microbes in the process. I've made it a point to buy good old hand and dish soap sans all the antibacterial properties. And I've made drinking kefir a part of my morning routine, which introduces bacteria into my system. I am very rarely sick, so I think I'm okay.

We humans have 10x as many bacterial cells as human cells in our bodies, and that almost all bacteria are harmless or beneficial, directly assisting our immune systems. The poor bacteria have a lousy rap based on a few bad apples. That said, I'm planning to get a computer for the kitchen once I find a mini-PC that I like, and this is the kind of keyboard I was thinking of. They're also ideal for hospitals or kiosks. Sharing bacteria with yourself, close friends, and family is kind of a non-issue.
