A mouse for cold-blooded animals

USB warmer is built right into the optical device

We don't get it: Do people's hands really get that cold on the keyboard? In the last few days alone, a plethora of hand-warming products have appeared on various blogs, including one here on Crave that would be the envy of everyone at the soup kitchen .

Hand-warming mouse
Brando

Prolific gadget maker Brando (gotta love the name) is addressing the demand by building a heater right into one of its peripherals. Fareastgizmos says the temperature of this "USB warmer optical mouse" can be raised by 45 degrees. At $22, it probably doesn't have a temperature gauge, but it does have an on/off switch--which is a good thing to have if you're using it with a laptop .

But do you need two of these for both hands?
