As spotted by The Verge, Apple has filed a patent for a keyboard designed to be resistant to crumbs and other debris:
The patent describes two different ways that a keyboard can keep dirt out, either by sealing gaps off or having a membrane beneath each key that would blow out air every time a key is pressed, pushing out unwanted debris.
From the figures shown in the patent, it’s clear that Apple is considering many different approaches and alternatives to create a crumb-resistant keyboard.
I’m all for this, but the Magic Keyboard I’m typing this sentence on is pretty robust and exists today, and feels way better to type on that the current MacBook Pro keyboard. Why can’t it be fit into a MacBook Pro?
