Logitech, a company that's no stranger to making keyboards for all kinds of devices, is launching Key-to-go – a new wireless iOS keyboard that features mechanical keys and a waterproof covering. This means users get the feedback of mechanical keys without having to worry about spills.

With this keyboard, Logitech has elected to leave off any method of attaching it to an iPad. This makes it easier to use with an iPhone or Apple TV, as it's just a simple Bluetooth keyboard that connects easily – users looking for an iPad case and keyboard combination are going to want to look elsewhere.

The main selling point of Logitech's new Key-to-go offering is the FabricSkin that covers the entirety of the keyboard. This makes it resistant to spills and dirt, which means users can safely type anywhere without worrying about their keyboard getting ruined. Waterproof keyboards aren't new, but what makes this one stand out is the fact that mechanical keys are tucked under that spill-resistant coating.

The keyboard itself looks to have large enough keys to type comfortably. The device is 9.53 inches (242 mm) long, 5.39 inches (137 mm) tall, and 0.24 inches (6 mm) deep. There's no number pad, so all of that space is used to accommodate traditional keys and a few iOS shortcuts.

Logitech is offering its new keyboard for preorder in red, teal, and black for US$69. The company did not announce an exact ship date, but it did say that it intends for it to hit the streets in November.
