A keyboard that may outlast its owner

SteelSeries claims that its 7G model will endure 50 million keystrokes.

Gaming is serious business, of course, and the line can often seem to blur between console gear and military-grade hardware. The latest example of this potential convergence may be SteelSeries' 7G professional gaming keyboard.

We're not sure if it's as tough as the survivalist-oriented M779 , but the 7G claims to be 10 times more durable than conventional keyboards. That means 50 million keystrokes, according to the company, thanks in part to mechanical switches that are plated in 18k gold. The no-click switches would probably come in handy for covert operations as well. No word, however, if it's compatible with night-vision goggles .
