A squeaky-clean mouse, sans the squeak

It's fully washable.

Belkin International

Now that fellow Craver Rich Demuro has shown that we can dry our hands properly at long last, it's time to revisit an idea whose time may finally have come: washable computer equipment .

Most of the submergible peripherals we've seen to date are keyboards , but now there's a mouse to go with them. Belkin's cleverly named "Washable Mouse" can take extended bubble baths because of a unique design that places uses a "scroll pad" instead of the usual wheel, according to Gizmodo.

This comes as good news to those of us in the OCD community who don't trust fancy titanium dioxide finishes that supposedly ward off bacteria. For our money, nothing beats good old soap and water. Well, that and maybe a Lego dishwasher .
