These USB cooling accessories are designed to help keep your hands and palms sweat free, supposedly improving your gaming performance. Both from Thermaltake, the Anti-Perspiration Wrist Pad (above) uses two fans to move cool air over the wristpad in the middle, while the DeskCool (below) uses a vibrating membrane to blow air over your mousing area.
Now, in order to actually spend money one of these things, I imagine you’d have to be a pretty hardcore gamer, right? But what hardcore gamer would admit to being put off his or her game when it gets a little toasty? Sounds like a pretty lame excuse to me, princess. If you fall into the aforementioned category, I would suggest going outside once in a while to build up your tolerance for minor temperature variations, and save yourself (and your self respect) the cost of getting one of these whenever they become available.
