Good news for the sweaty-palmed gamer

Fans for the wrist pad

Newlaunches

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.
