USB Heated Mouse Pad Keeps One Hand Warm
September 11th, 2008
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said to myself: Self, your mousing hand gets so cold all the time; I only wish there was a way to keep it warm and toasty in between all that scrolling, pointing and clicking. (sarcasm.)
Thanks to this weird, wacky mouse pad from Japan’s Thanko, you can keep your chilly hand nice and warm while you crank out spreadsheets and surf the web. Just stick your hand inside the “mouth” of this oversize blue googley-eyed fish and an integral heating element keeps your fingers fiery hot (or maybe that’s its stomach acid dissolving your skin into a gelatinous goo).
Just plug the blue monster into a spare USB port, and it’ll reach a fiery 42° C (107.6° F) in about 10 minutes. I suppose it beats wearing ski gloves when you’re working on your PC.
You can get your hands on (or inside) one of these from USBGeek for $22.
