    Hey,

    Im a league gamer and i live in estonia, it gets very cold here on winter times and my right arm (mouse arm) gets always soso cold that sometimes its painful to keep on gaming.

    So my idea is you make a mouse that heats up and is warm so my hands keep warm.

    well polymers are not very good at conduction heat, so you will need a metal back
    combined with the heating mechanism the weight on the mouse will probably be too heavy for competitive gaming

    Doesn't sound like a very good idea to me..

    I sympathize with you. So hard to make plays when you're freezing!

    Sooo, in places where it's too hot should we make mats that freeze? Should we make keyboards with wrist heaters and chairs with leg warmers, computers that overheat for hand warming? Can you not buy central heating? You're asking for a $20 mousemat to heat up for you... without damaging the base of the mouse you'll be putting on the heat...

    Just keep it simple and get a small electric heater with a fan from any store like Walmart, they're about $15. Have it blow on your hands. When I'm trying to save money on the heat bill by keeping the whole house cold I'll sometimes do this.

    I think hes talking about the actual mouse itself, not the mouse mat. So you wouldnt have to worry about the mat damaging the mouse feet if you just heat the top of the mouse.

    But yeah...overall this isnt a very smart idea. It would be much better just to get a personal space heater like the one listed above, and put it next to you while gaming. You can find them pretty cheap, and it would be way cheaper then the R&D in developing a heated mouse that probably wouldnt sell very many in the first place.

    That happens to me sometimes too, just get some mittens (Not the super hardcore ones, just like warm gloves) It might feel weird, but it probably won't effect your accuracy very much or at all

    Just buy a heater,even if they did make one,not many people would want it anyway

    I have to disagree with this, but I guess it depends on how thin the layer is.
    Best bet is probably just a heater.

    I'd just go for a space heater or the simple sweat-shirt and gloves approach.

    This would for sure be a unique product. But it probably wouldn't be very practical because it would be very heavy.

    I could see the mouse over time shorting out and burning someone. Hello lawsuit

    This guy says it like it is. There are many solutions that exist for this problem already, the best of which is probably space heating. A mouse that warms the hand would be useless in many situations - warmer climates, buildings with central heating, tense gameplay sessions that induce sweating, etc.

    This all reminds me of how NASA over-engineered a highly specialized pen to write in space (zero gravity means ink wont flow down to the tip). After everything was said and done, they had a machined aluminum pen with hermetically sealed nitrogen pressurized cartridges complete with thixotropic ink.

    All this...when they could have just simply used a pencil.
