Elecom antibacterial USB mouse
My family has a major grouse against my heightened paranoia about cleanliness. A mere speck of dust anywhere in the house is enough to arouse my "clean it" radar, creating panic all over. Often my near and dear ones tell me that I would probably be happier living in the "clean and disinfected" environs of a hospital instead.
Now imagine what a product like the Elecom antibacterial mouse would do for a person like me. This one tops my "must-have" list, especially since recent studies have shown that an average desk harbors more bacteria and germs than even the toilet seat. The Elecom M-ABUR series mouse comes with a special resin coating that prevents bacteria from growing on it. However the general rules for health and hygiene still apply since the mouse will only keep the bacterial count on your hands to a minimum, while you still have to deal with the billions of other bacteria floating around.
In keeping with the spirit, the mouse is shaped like a bar of soap and comes in attractive blue, orange, pink and green colors. Costing approximately $33, availability is currently restricted to Japan.
Now, if only I could use this technology for everything else in my house as well...
