Cleankeys keyboard is easy to clean

Seeing these Cleankeys keyboard reminds me of the Atari 400. Some of you may not remember this slightly cheaper version of the Atari 800 home computer that used a TV as a monitor, but the keyboard did not have the individual keys like the ones on most of our PCs and laptops of today.

The problem with the 400 is that they had a way of not relaying input when then were touched lightly. Hopefully, the people who made the Cleankeys have solved this problem, but I think that their goal was to make a computer keyboard that would be easily cleanable.

All you need to do is just wipe it down like you would a window. Not only is this a computer for all germphobics, but for most offices where computer keyboards are shared amongst employees.

The cleankeys have a numeric keypad, and what looks like a circular touchpad in its lower right hand corner. Now, an easily cleanable keyboard is the good news. The bad news is the price tag. It costs about $400.

Yeah, I don’t know about you, but I’m willing to take a risk with germs rather than pay that price for a keyboard, which is about four times more than a regular keyboard. Oh, and did we mention that it was wireless, too?
