It's a shame you have to wreck the teflon feet to open the mouse, since it WILL need to be opened for dusting and cleaning.

I like the idea of a very light mouse and this seems great but even ignoring sweat and dead skin building up over several months, the open design is still going to fill with dust - I dust my desk infrequently (every month or so) and if that much dust ended up in my mouse every month this thing would absolutely atrocious within a year. This is in a house with hardwood floors, so it's likely that the bulk of the dust is simply clothing fibres. RIP this mouse if you have carpets, pets, a tumble-drier, or any combination of those!

A simple can of compressed air takes care of this really non-existent issue.

Yeah, that'd probably work pretty well.

I wouldn't call it a non-existent issue though - sure, the solution is simple, but dust is definitely gonna have an easier time getting into your scroll wheel and in between the buttons and switches than in a sealed mouse.

How? You can spray air through all the holes, but there's no exhaust on the opposite side.

You can spray from the top into the mouse, the bottom is also full of holes.

I think he was implying that the mouse PCB would block the airflow from front to back - and it would.

Either way, I still think a good squirt of compressed air would be enough to dislodge dust and dirt and blow them out of a hole somewhere, even if it's not out of the back of the mouse.
