It's the same idea, apparently, as those non-powered carpet sweepers that you can use when you just want to get a few crumbs.  I could see myself adding it to a JetPens order on a whim, using it a few times, then realizing a couple of months later that I had no idea where it was.

 

With Christmas coming up, might not be a bad stocking stuffer for someone who likes little gadgets, though.

I do o'ekaki puzzles ( http://www.amazon.co...keywords=oekaki ), and they frequently involve a lot of erasing.  There are times when I end up with quite a bit of eraser dust around.  If I were trying to be tidy (nope, usually not), this thingie would be pretty cool.

I hate all the stuff laying on my desk already. That could be fun to play for a while but in the end it's the last thing i want to see. Could be a funny gimmick to give away as a gift for some student.


There are other ways than the easiest one too.

YEP... I could see my kids thinking it was too cute and should go into a diorama.

Fantastic idea. My nine year old daughter loved it when she saw the video and anything that'll make it fun for her to clean up the table after her homework and drawing has to be a good thing.

A friend saw it and decided to order one. They were out of the blue so she ordered pink—that was sold out too. Evidently they flew off the warehouse shelf.

I think I remember something like that from the 1960s. Not sure but it sort of joggles my memory
