The survivalist's keyboard

For extreme computing

If Speed Link's aluminum keyboard is the equivalent of a tuxedo, than Stacco Switch's M779 is what you'd wear to go camping--or maybe your paramilitary training exercises.

This keyboard may not be the prettiest on the block, but that's hardly the point. The M779 (sounds like an automatic weapon, appropriately) is designed to "withstand vibration, shock, severe jolts and spilled liquids," according to Gizmowatch. It also has a touchpad and LED lighting so you can save the batteries on your night-vision goggles. And to complete your undercover mission, we suggest a titanium USB drive to store your classified documents.
