Now you’ll never need to spill crumbs all over yourself or your keyboard again while you’re storming the enemy’s base.

Unique digital gadgets retailer Shanghai Donya, previously seen here in conjunction with the DotsPen, has saved gamers everywhere from one more spill with its new light-up LED gaming chopsticks. The glowing utensils went on sale on May 26 for 580 yen (US$4.56) at computer specialty store Dospara locations throughout Japan and on its online store.

Keep a pair on your gaming desk so that you’ll never have trouble grabbing those little chips or candy pieces inside a bag in the darkness. We shudder to think how much more productive Light Yagami would have been with his Death Note had he employed these in his dark room.

They’re not only handy, but their sleek design is also meant to complement your gaming experience. Press a simple button to light them up and choose from nine different light colors to best suit your current on-screen visuals or current mood.

You can even set the individual colors of each stick to make different combinations. Might we add that since they’re basically mini lightsabers, you should definitely use them while playing a Star Wars game to enhance the experience?

The bulk of the chopsticks are made from transparent resin. They’re approximately 260 millimeters (10.2 inches) in length and the grip area is 10 millimeters in diameter.

When it’s time for cleaning, simply remove the detachable LED unit and wash the resin part only.

Finally, the gaming chopsticks are fully in accordance with Japan’s Food Sanitation Act and are approved by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare. Please note that they’re not intended to be used for oily dishes like stir-fried foods or to be used as cooking chopsticks.

If you thought that the humble eating utensil couldn’t get any more high-tech, you may want to take a moment to read about these electric chopsticks developed by Meiji University that can make low-salt foods taste salty.
