Canned air is very convenient for cleaning computer keyboards and internals, but it’s not the safest stuff to use. It uses nasty propellants to drive the air out of the can, and those aren’t good for the environment or your health if you breathe them in. The cans get super cold quickly, and they can even cause frostbite if you try to spray them for too long at once. The Hurricane 2 Canless Air System replaces those dangerous, and expensive, cans of air and noxious chemicals with clean, breathable air. The Hurricane 2 is a hand-held, battery-powered compressor that can shoot out a jet of air at 200 mph. It won’t freeze up after a few seconds like normal canned air; it can produce a 12-minute stream of air. It’s even safe to blow on humans because it won’t freeze the skin and it doesn’t have dangerous chemicals. Each charge is the equivalent of about 20 cans of air. The Hurricane 2 Canless Air System is available from ThinkGeek for $99.99. They also offer an accessories kit containing a concentrator nozzle, flexible extension tube, and a brush for $9.99
