Keyboard keeps your digits toasty

Finally, a hand warmer that makes sense

ToolTopia

If there's one thing we learned this last winter, people get cold while sitting at their computers. Very cold. And the gadget industry jumped into action and responded with heated products ranging from mice to mittens , throwing in an occastional lap or knee warmer for good measure.

But honestly, given how much heat emanates from a computer, why should there be a need for something that produces additional BTUs? The cleverly named WK001 keyboard from V8, for example, is powered by a USB connection that generates two levels of toastiness--"normal hand temperature" and "normal body temperature"--to keep one's circulation flowing even in offices with meat-locker thermostats.

And it won't make you look homeless either.
