An electrostatic filter would be interesting. Does it exist? (sorry, I'm not very knowledgeable about filters)
Electrostatic filters exist, but I don't know of any for computers; they will still need periodic cleaning but I believe would not be very restrictive; the cyclone idea might be a lot simpler, but again I have not seen it used on computers.
Like many people I just blast things out now and again, but 'compressed air' is way too expensive and a blower is a better idea, but this can lead to a discussion of electrostatic dangers. I recall a story of a submarine probe that was ballasted with CO2 so it would float to the surface; the electronics were failing because the dry gas was developing electrostatic discharge as it brushed passed surfaces. That said, I have never had any problems, but have the ESD version of the Datavac which attends to these issues.
This problem of frictionally induced discharge can seem for volcanos.
