Keyboard Cleaner

What is it?

Keyboard Cleaner is a simple utility for cleaning your keyboard. It simply blocks (most) keyboard input, so you can clean it without logging off or shutting down the computer. Blocking is initiated via simple key presses.

Keyboard Cleaner is written in MacRuby and is supposed to work on SnowLeopard. Earlier versions are not supported. It still has a few glitches here and there and I am working on it, but if you are a very courageous person, please try it out and let me know, how it works for you.

Why?

If you're like me, you spend most of your day behind a computer. You also eat, drink and do all kinds of messy stuff behind your computer. So naturally, the keyboard gets dirty and if you are using an Unibody MacBook, you start getting the keys "burned" to your screen. Hopefully, this utility will help you avoid such inconveniences.

Think of it as brushing teeth, your keyboard needs love too ;)

No really, why?

Ok, you got me. I really wanted to give MacRuby a shot.

Thanks

I used the nice rounded view from Matt Gemmell and helped myself with TweetScreen and mjijackson's Fullscreen.

Thanks and keep being awesome!
