The Sidekick Vacuum Cleaner Safely Relocates Spiders from a Distance

The cup and paper technique of picking up a bug and placing it outside does not fly with everyone. The Sidekick Vacuum is intended for those who like to keep their distance from creepy-crawlies, so much so that removing them by hand from the wall beside them is too scary to bear.

Designer Bernd Karlsboeck was inspired by the Stormtrooper to dream up the sleek look of this domestic device. It's white and streamlined and swiftly extends with a simple rotation. This configuration creates a tunnel from end to end, enabling the user to suck up a centipede from another arm's away and capture it in the other side. This part of the Sidekick Hand Vacuum can be detached for the stress-free release of the insect outdoors.
