Thanko has previously released a keyboard to keep our arms and hands cool while typing. They now have a new keyboard which can warm our extremities via USB. The new keyboard is prepared for warm and cool weather in that it incorporates three fans which can cool, but also can provide some toasty heat as well. The keyboard is currently in Japan and if you need to have this keyboard for yourself, you’ll need to find a decent importer as there is no mention of it going on sale in the U.S. any time soon.
Cube farm dwellers, say goodbye to stiff fingers. Uncontrollable climate control systems can often leave us with numb digits, something that all of the “Cozy Legs” heaters, blankets and trips to the coffee machine in the world can’t fix. Finally, someone has tried.
Whether you file this internally as just another USB accessory or a legitimate peripheral, Warmkeyboard has the potential to be useful in more than just the “inputting characters” way that your run-of-the-mill keyboard is. Like your run-of-the-mill keyboard, it’s a standard 104-key plug and play keyboard with media hotkeys. However, unlike your standard issue keyboard it has heating elements underneath the keys that keep your fingers nice and toasty while you work.
