Sensor Cleaner

My K10 manual mentions a sensor cleaner - Imagesensor Cleaning Kit O-ICK1. I dimly recall seeing this mentioned (with kudos) on dpreview. Does anyone no if this gadget is available in the US (a cursory look at B&H and Adorama didn't come up with anything)?

Last time I asked Pentax rep it wasn't available yet. Works a neat way. The tip is made of urethane rubber. This is supposed to be what Pentax techs use. Finally a camera company tells us what they use! I want one.

Here you can get one. Hopefully it will become available in the rest of the world as well.

"You remove also the stubborn rubbish with the adhesion of the special polyurethane rubber, without damaging the low-pass filter surface. The cleaning seat which drops the rubbish which is attached to the polyurethane rubber has belonged "

Ahhhh, it all makes sense to me now!
