Air cooled mouse pad

air cooled mouse pad

Jared and Dan from Inventgeek have just posted their latest how-to: The air cooled mouse pad. They know that there are air cooled mice that you can buy, but why should you have to use an inferior mouse for gaming just for one feature? They decided instead to convert an Antec laptop cooler into the ultimate gaming mouse pad; One that keeps your hand cool and lets you use whatever mouse you prefer.

    Keep my hand cool? Where is my damn heated mouse?

    this is pretty old, this started out in the casemodding community, if seen a lot of designs but the hype kind of died out soem time ago.

    didnt really think it was hack day material, else i would have trown a link around a long time ago.

    but id rather have a slightly warm mouse then a cool one.

    This is a pretty lame hack… ever thought that your hand is ON the mouse, not flying on top of the mouse pad. Not to mention that anyone could of cooked up this hack.

    Good idea thought… I’m cooking something up, better than that….

    Smoth out the bottom of the mouse. That way it’s like airhocky. Pointless for gaming and business, but since when was that the point of a hack?

    #6 I always thought it would be neat to somehow make an airhockey mousepad for good cooling and low friction :)

    oh god, buying a bin to cut up is pretty dumb – you can buy meash from diy stores, or auto stores to hold filler in place for (bodged, obviously) bodywork repair

    not a bad idea, though. i’ll hang on for the peltier version

    How about a mouse pad that runs off USB power but has another port in the back for your mouse…? That way no “wasted” USB ports, and it kinda makes sense.
