Yes! IOGEAR has finally made it safe to lick your friend’s mouse. That is of course if they are using the $39.95 Germ Free Wireless Laser Mouse, also to be known by its far-catchier name, the GME227RW6. The mouse has a Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) and Silver (Ag) nano-particle compound on its surface that deactivates enzymes and proteins preventing bacteria, virus, fungi, and algae from surviving. Come to think of it, doesn’t silver make your skin turn blue? Hrmmm… It also does all the good things a laser mouse should, so even if you’re not hung up on catching a disease from your electronics you should feel free to check it out.
Oh, and what I said about licking it, IOGEAR’s disclaimer says, along with some other fun stuff, not to “ingest the surface material of the device under any circumstances.” Bummer.
