We all have seen USB vacuum cleaners and we have seen many uniquely designed
mice, but we can honestly say that we have never seen a USB-powered vacuum cleaner which doubles as a mouse; or at least have we haven't up until now as those masters of Japanese kitsch over at Thanko USB Vacuum Mouse
have done just that. To be more accurate, the Thanko is mainly an odd shaped mouse that can do double duty as a vacuum cleaner, but honestly given its weird shape and size, it probably doesn't do either one all that well.
Besides the oddity factor, about the only thing the USB Vacuum Mouse is really good at is creating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in its users while also deafening them at the same time. We say that as the chunky shape is rather short to create a lot of suction power, but that self same shape will not be what we would call overly ergonomic. Add in the fact that all reports indicate that when used as a vacuum it is rather loud and annoying and you have an 800DPI enabled mess of a mouse. If however, you are a collector of kitschy USB powered devices than the approximately $24 priced USB Vacuum Mouse may just be perfect for your collection.
