Unotron's keyboards and mice can be dunked in water

Just how clean is your computer keyboard and mouse? If you work in a hospital or have small kids who like eating junk food and rolling around in the front yard then your mouse could be covered in germs and grime. Unotron is selling a line of keyboards and mice with their “SpillSeal” technology that can be fully immersed and washed.

Unotron claims that their peripherals are not just spill resistant, but can take a full dunking in hot water or disinfectant. From their product website, the company says the gear can, “withstand being immersed in antibacterial solutions and rinsed under a tap to reduce spread of germs.” In fact, the company points to an lab report that says 100% of Staphylococcus Aureus bacteria were killed when the keyboards were put under a Presept wash, which is a common hospital grade germ killer.

The company has also tested their gear against international standards IP66 and NEMA4X, which puts equipment through tortuous high-speed water jets and wind-blown dust particles. The secret to the Unotron’s durability are the fully seals keys and buttons that can keep out dust, water and harmful liquids – like blood in hospital settings.

Unotron’s keyboards and mice are sold at several online retailers for around $40 and up.
