No stick-your-hand-in-a-whale affair and no silly furry animals in sight. Thanko has taken the best features of the kotatsu Japanese heated table and combined it into a Futon Mouse Pad, a USB-heated cover to keep your beavering hands toasty during the winter days at the office.
At first glance this looks just like the mattress and quilt that is so classically Japanese, but it's even more modern and practical than that. It fits together with velcro, so simple that you don't even need to be able to make a bed to work it. Then just connect the USB cable to your computer, slip in your hand - and you will be super snug in no time.
It even reaches temperatures up to 50°C (122°F). Just be careful not to overuse it and burn yourself! The heater can also be taken out, so the "pillow" can be used just as a regular arm or wrist rest for hands weary from typing.
