While some of us have our quaint, personal habits, such as not eating where we work, I am quite sure that many of us do not mind munching on some snacks while we hammer away at the keyboard in order to meet a particular document dateline. Pizza, donuts, and perhaps a pretzel is always more than welcome, although sometimes we would not mind having some cookies or biscuits, too. Of course, since we do not have the powers of Ant-Man to telepathically ask ants to clear up the mess, there is a recourse to ensure our desk does not have unwanted crumbs lying around. Star Wars fans will definitely squeal in delight with the £14.99 R2-D2 Desk Vacuum Cleaner, which looks super cute – and is functional, too.
Granted, this is not a new idea, as USB-powered desk vacuum cleaners have been around for close to a decade already, but this is yet another role that the little astromech droid that could excels in. Perfect for hoovering up salacious crumbs, it will be powered by USB instead of a crystal that powers a lightsaber, and there is no sweaty midget hiding inside. Unfortunately, there is no accompanying protocol droid to make up one of the silver screen’s more famous dynamic duos. The third leg of this R2-D2 Desk Vacuum Cleaner would play the role of the micro-vacuum cleaner, and when he is full of dust, just unscrew his domed head to clean it out.
