Combo mouse is a compulsive cleaner

It's perfect for the messy worker who eats at the desk.

Thanko

If you thought the irritatingly misspelled " Robo Vacum " was silly, you're in good company. What it needs, of course, is to be combined with another device--like a mouse.

And that's good news for a company like Thanko. It is, after all, the Japanese outfit that prides itself on creations ranging from USB aromatherapy devices to muscle-toning mice. So it came as little surprise that it's responsible for a "USB Vacuum Mouse" that's pretty much self-explanatory.

The combo gadget is an 800-dpi mouse that turns into a mini-vacuum cleaner with the flip of a small switch, according to Everything USB. They would do well to work in a cooking function to make the clean-up feature all the more attractive.
