There are no moving parts that will wear out or snap off, you know after the abrasive typing that only comes with a doughnut-induced sugar rush. The keyboard has a metal base and printed keys on the back of the glass. Plus, these braniacs also kept in mind pesky, unsightly cords – both the keyboard and mouse are wireless and rechargeable.
