Computex 2016 -- We got a chance to see Tesoro's new IR key switches in action at their Computex booth, courtesy of the company's Excalibur Spectrum SE Keyboard. Considering it was submerged in a small tank of water all day, we're pretty sure Tesoro's claims of it being spill-proof are accurate.

The Excalibur Spectrum SE uses the company's slick new light-based infrared switches, which eliminate metal bounce and oxidation. That means you can go ahead and splash your favorite beverage on it and it will just shrug it off and laugh hysterically.

Tesoro's Lucas Wiltse explained to TweakTown that this makes the Excalibur Spectrum SE the perfect candidate for internet cafes.

It has more going for it than being impervious to liquids, like pressure sensitive keys, a lightning fast 0.1 millisecond response time, and the same tactile feel of Cherry MX Blue switches. Not to mention the expected 16.8 million RGB spectrum of color, full N-key rollover, instant macro recording...yea, it's pretty stacked.

No details on pricing or release date yet, but we'll keep you informed!
