Unfortunately even in the hot months we still have to slave away inside a steaming office. Thanko have made our lives more comfortable, however, using their USB know-how to come up with this handy USB Heater and Cooler Keyboard to turn typing into a pleasure whatever the climate. Three fans will soon be making your desktop life much more balmy, and the knob at the bottom right of the keyboard can be turned to adjust the strength.
But this isn't just any old seasonable device. No, it works both ways! In winter switch it over to the heater setting and those same ports will then become heaters to warm up your freezing fingers. (Just flip the switch on the front of the keyboard.) Of course this is a Japanese keyboard but it still comes with standard Roman alphabet QWERTY features too. Just press the button marked "英数" to change to non-Japanese characters.
