NCS Product Synopsis
Update: October 25, 2010

«©NCSX» If your desk is grimy, sticky, and coated with a thin veneer of crust, Taito's Star Wars R2-D2 USB Desktop Cleaner won't do anything for you. R2-D2 isn't powerful enough to clean your desktop sty. However, if dust and small bits of paper or glitter are all that haunt your tabletop, R2-D2 is a champ who plugs into any USB port and suctions small amounts of debris, detritus, and dirt.

   Please note that the suction intake port underneath R2-D2 measures only 7/8 x 1/4" which means it's far too too small to suck up anything other than rat feces, small pieces of paper which are smaller than 7/8 x 1/4" in area, dead baby roaches, and grains of spilled rice. An off/on switch is located on the back of R2's dome. Some questions and answers are in order:
 
I can wipe my desk with a napkin to clean it up, why do I need R2?
   Because R2-D2 suction is cooler than napkin motion.

Is a C-3PO desktop cleaner also on the way from Taito?
   No, C-3PO isn't cool like that.

Can I clean my cat with the R2-D2 gizmo?
   Yes, but your cat would probably go on the attack and claw at least an ounce of flesh from your bones.
 
Where are you making these? On another planet? You'll never sell any before you get Lucas on your back.
   Our first choice was Tatooine because labor is dirt cheap there and criminal activity is rampant. However, there's a hefty bounty on our heads and we decided that China would be a safer place for manufacturing R2-D2 kit.

Does R2-D2 move by itself like a Roomba?
   No, this particular incarnation of R2-D2 is immobile. Its struts don't even move and are fixed into position. To clean your desk, you would have to take R2-D2 into your right or left hand and then move it over small bits of paper, glitter, or spilled tomato seeds to clean up.

   The R2-D2 cleaner measures 10cm or 3.93" in height and is constructed of durable PVC and has a 36" USB cord attached in the back.
