Apple has patented a keyboard that is potentially immune to spilled coffee and crumbs, two of the most dangerous substances to be allowed near a gadget.
Spilled coffee is about as destructive to a keyboard as a 40ft drop.
This is a scientific fact that can be confirmed by anyone who has tried, desperately, to mop up their now ruined keyboard with tattered bits of napkin.
Then there are crumbs, don’t even get us started on the devastating damage that crumbs can cause.
Thankfully, Apple’s engineers believe they have a solution.
