At $240 for the Really Cool Keyboard and $99 for the Mighty Mouse 5, these Man and Machine computer peripherals were designed with high-traffic workplaces such as hospitals in mind. They’re “vomit-proof and pee-proof,” says the company’s Jeff Goldman. Employers with shared workstations should take a second look, as should students residing in Animal House-type environments where beer and other fluids tend to fly around. Made in Landover, Maryland, these computer accessories are hard to break and impervious to spills. They’re also dishwasher-safe, meaning they can be sanitized between users. (Buy via ruggedtech.com.) You can charge your devices using Sewell Direct’s MOS Spring line of cables (mosorganizer.com, US$19 to $30). Standard phone connector cables fray and snap. MOS Spring’s products, available in Micro USB and Apple iPhone formats, are guaranteed for life, “short of intentional destruction,” says Sewell’s Greg Petersen. Protected by a tough nylon sleeve, MOS Spring cables will stand up to the rigours of ordinary life—and perhaps even campus life.
