Coming soon to a desktop near you...Full Metal Keyboard. No, it's not a Stanley Kubrick sequel. It's a peripheral from UAC Japan that ships in 2007.

The keys, as well as the trackball surface, are made of stainless steel, while the body is made of aluminium, according to NewLaunches.com, which alerted us to the gadget. Dustproof and waterproof, the keyboard can be used in harsh environments--or, of course, to complement the decor of chic industrial-style lofts.
