The computer desk is the one area of the house that I sit at all the time but always forget to dust. By the time I do get around to cleaning, the dust bunnies have grown large enough to take off a finger at the knuckle if I'm not careful. The solution to the problem? Clean as you use the computer by picking up a USB Cleaner Mouse from Thanko!
The USB Cleaner Mouse contains a tiny vacuum cleaner capable of being activated by the push of a button. Dirt and grime are whisked away into a small compartment within the mouse itself until it is emptied by the owner.
Like many popular computer mice these days, the USB Cleaner Mouse can take advantage of either USB 1.1 or 2.0, depending on your machine's capabilities. It also features a scroll wheel and left and right-click buttons. The vacuum activation button is located lower down on the mouse. The mouses's shape seems a little awkward to me, but it's hard to say without actually having it in my hand. The lure to proverbially kill two birds with one stone by cleaning as you use the computer might just be enough to interest many computer nerds the world over.
Residents of the US or most other countries won't be faced with a purchasing dilemma, however, as the mouse has only been released in the Japanese market. With a price tag of ¥1980 (about $19USD), it might just be worth it.
