Thanko PC Waterbed Cools Laptops, Let’s Hope it Doesn’t Leak

by Range

I’ve never been one to mix water with electronics, but if your laptop is generating too much heat, then you need to do something about it, right? This portable waterbed for your laptop should get the job done. Now, why didn’t of that?

Yes, my Asus laptop gets very hot, but my new MacBook Pro doesn’t. It just stays very cool most of the time. That being said, if you tax your processor and graphics card a lot, your laptop will heat up. That’s why Thanko came up with this PC Waterbed.


It combines a cushion with a cooling unit. The outer part of the unit can be filled with air, while the part under your laptop is filled with water. I don’t know how efficient this is, never mind the fact that it’s filled with water, natural enemy of electronics. If you’re willing to take the risk of a wet laptop (or just a wet lap), it’s available for ¥1,980 ($24 USD) here.

    The very fact that this thing comes with two repair patches and a tube of glue should be warning enough to stay far away.
