Keyboards have to withstand a lot of abuse. Here is how they're tested in the QA lab.
For its newest hardware offerings, Logitech boasts that its products are even more durable than ever, with much better tolerances to intense use. For example, Logitech advertises that many of its products are designed to continue operating through 20 million clicks or key presses. Of course, how could Logitech possibly test such a claim? It'd be insane to imagine that a test sample go under 20 million clicks... or is it? Apparently not, but thankfully it's not humans or animals who are doing the testing.
Logitech gave us a look at how it tests its keyboards. As you can see from the videos below, there is special software that works alongside the mechanical hardware to track and give feedback on the tests.
It's not just Logitech's hardcore offerings that get this sort of testing; the company even puts its iPad keyboard accessories through a similar procedure.
These were taken from Logitech's QA lab in Switzerland, but the company did tell us that even more rigorous testing takes place in its labs in Asia.
