While shopping online today for an old fashioned P/S 2 Mouse and Keyboard I ran across a serendipitous discovery. Check out the Grandtec GLW-1000 Type Keyboard

The Virtually Indestructible Keyboard, a silicon-based flexible computer keyboard, features a unique combination of durability and soft, comfortable feel. The washable, "roll-able" keyboard has been called "the best thing to happen to typing since the backspace key." The VIK combines state-of-the-art technology with practical design to produce the perfect keyboard. The unique layout offers quick, reflexive typing action that is not only silent, but also more comfortable than standard hard plastic keyboards. The "flat-out" design eliminates negative-angle wrist stress, an unfortunate and impractical holdover from the archaic days of manual typewriters. The silicon-based material is impervious to most anything including water, coffee and cleaning solutions. From the classroom to the factory floor, the Virtually Indestructible Keyboard is poised to revolutionize how the world types.

I don’t know how often I am typing on my standard keyboard in very low light conditions and cannot really see the keys. This isn’t a huge problem since I am mostly a touch-typist. But, I do not have all the special character keys mastered, nor do I have all the numeral keys mastered. So, I have to focus on my keyboard and wait for my eyes to adjust from looking at the monitor to looking down into the dark area of the keyboard. This little puppy would help a great deal and it even rolls up for quick packing in my briefcase and it is WATERPROOF!
