Japanese electronics company Thanko has developed a futon mouse pad that keeps fingers from getting frigid during the winter.

Imagine working on a report or even playing a video game in a cold bedroom for a prolonged period of time. It may not be chilly enough to break out the heaters, but working or playing games on the computer for prolonged periods can make fingers hard and crackly. Thanko's futon mouse pad includes a removable heat packet that can reach up to 50 degrees Celsius. Once plugged into the USB port on the computer, users can rest their wrists on the ergonomically friendly pillow and tuck their hands in with an additional blanket to insulate their mouse-wielding fingers.
