Level 32

I’ll just come right out and say that I don’t really think I’ve ever had a problem with sweaty palms in the 25 years or so that I’ve been regularly using a mouse. But my weather app is telling me it feels like 100°F in Tokyo today, and I am not looking forward to my electricity bill this month, so if I can shift even one percent of the cooling burden from my air conditioner to my PC’s USB port, why not?

That’s where Mindshunter’s Zephyr Gaming Mouse comes in. It is, as far as I’m aware, the first ever gaming mouse with a built-in fan to cool your hand. It’s available (and fully funded) for pre-order on Kickstarter now with prices starting at $89 and an estimated shipping date of October.


Level 22
For about 10 USD, you can get a clip-on fan and aim it toward your mouse mat. I just tried it.

Honestly, I'd rather support an innovation for designing a keyboard that allows for safe and convenient removal of the bottom panel so you can dump all the crumbs and :poop: that accumulate in there over time. My can of compressed air can only do so much, right?
