    Yeah that's a good idea. Maybe on version 2?

    I use a keyboard like this

    Newegg.com - TRIPP LITE IN3008KB Black 106 Normal Keys USB or PS/2 Wired Slim Compact Flexible Keyboard for Notebook/Laptop

    My mouse is not dust proof but at lest the keyboard is.

    Re: My DIY Dedicated Mach3 Control Panel

    Old thread, but I'll throw this in anyways...

    They make silicone rubber flexible waterproof keyboards for not too much $$$. A quick search of Amazon shows a bunch for about $15USD; search terms were "rubber waterproof keyboard". Likewise, searching for "USB trackpad" or "USB touchpad" yields a bunch of results for not too much $$$.

    For the touchpads, I might think about opening the case on them and sealing them with electronics-compatible silicone.

    Also, Arduinos with native USB (for example, Leonardo, Zero, and Due based boards) can emulate a USB keyboard or mouse; if you're at all comfortable with writing scripts or programming.
