You know I’m not sure if so-called ‘inventors’ will ever run out of things that can be crammed into a computer mouse. This time a simple 800dpi laser mouse with scroll wheel has been augmented with a miniature vacuum cleaner. There’s a power switch on the side for turning the vacuum function on and off, and the mouse needs to be tethered to a USB port in order to draw sufficient power to run the motor.
You can open up the back-end and access a miniature dust/crumb reservoir, but given its size it will probably need to be emptied after every muffin or bag of chips. But if cleanliness sits higher on your list of priorities than ergonomics, this looks like the right mouse for the job.
