Good news for the sweaty-palmed gamer

Fans for the wrist pad


Sure, there are plenty of products to keep computers from overheating, but what about the people who use them? We're talking specifically about those familiar gamers who are known for giving their deodorants a run for their money.

To combat overactive sweat glands, Thermaltake has developed some accessories for the hardcore pwner that are designed to blend in with other gaming equipment, unlike a portable fan from K-mart. To wit: The "Anti-Perspiration Wrist Pad" (this is the actual name on the logo).

Although it could easily be mistaken for a set of speakers, as Newlaunches notes, this USB-connected device actually houses two fans to keep palms dry even under the heaviest enemy fire. It may also come in handy for emergency clean-up situations, including the inevitable Mountain Dew spill.
