Pneumatic Insect Vacuum (Also) Sucks

w_01.jpg By Ryan Nill

Insects are one of the foundations of our biosystem yet the poor suckers don’t get any respect. Of course being important doesn’t mean they’re not gross and we’d rather have them on the outside of our dwellings. Enter the Insect Vacuum. It’s a gun-like device that works with compressed air. Stick it next to the insect in need of eviction and pull the trigger. A sudden suction of air will propel the chitinous fella into a receptacle for later (humane?) disposal.

This is just the kind of thing you find on the streets of Akihabara, and will set you back a cool 2,389 Yen (or about $25). Not sure if the company delivers overseas, though you can try to figure it out through the comically translated product page below. Oh, and be sure to check out the video.
