'[OT]: heated mouse pad?'
2001\06\20@103839 by Roman Black

Hi guys, it's feeling VERY wintery here now,
my right hand is cold (mouse hand) and my right
wrist feels the cold, almost mouse-rsi at times.

Left hand is ok on my lap or in my pocket.

So anyone know where to get a heated mouse pad?
Mmmmm. Warm! :o)

Maybe I just invented it? Probably could use
one of those small thermal pads under the mouse
pad, or I could thread some fine resistance wire
through the mousepad foam underneath.

Just make a mouse with a PIII processor and it will be warm all on its
own.  Meanwhile it can interpolate between mickeys with an adaptive AI
neural network.  Soon you will NEED all that computing power in your
mouse!

How about a hot water bottle? ;-) Your RSI would get worse, of course, as
the curvature of the bottle would probably cause it more strain.
Plus, it would be a bit of an erotic mouse mat....cos it would be like a
cheesy waterbed....
Maybe you could compliment it with a mirrored ceiling?

;-)

Ha ha! Well it's a big house and I have the heater
running 2 of its 3 elements as it is. Easier to put
a big jumper on than try to heat the entire house.

Now I just need that heated mouse pad.

Roman,
   You could try one of those heating pads that the home brewers use to
keep the wine/beer at the right temperature for fermentation.
Unfortunately I have no pointers

How about a IR bulb in a desk lamp over the mouse, use the heat much
like those hamburger warmers at McDonalds.

On a more serious note, there is allot of information on the internet
about the medicinal benefits of red and IR light.  I have serious
thought about using such a light over my mouse pad.  Not only would it
keep my hand's / wrist's warm, but it might also take care of the pain
as well. There is a company that  makes red LED light bulbs
(http://www.led.net) for those that may want the medicinal benefit without all
the heat..

I often end up using a terminal in a machine room at 60 degrees Fahrenheit and
have used the following with success.
Get a heating pad and set your mouse pad on top of it. The pad will keep your
mouse, hand, and forearm warm. Also it will help keep a coffee cup a little
warmer.

I've also used a small desk lamp (8 inches high) with a 100 Watt bulb to
shine down
on the mouse.

I haven't spent the time yet to hack the mouse and put heating elements
into it, but
I have thought about it while watching backups run.

When it comes to heating, we all have very different customs
around this world.

Her in Denmark, we pay 25 cent pr. kWH for the electricity.
We live in brick houses with double windows and heat the house
with wood. (Imagine my South African/Canadian, 100 pound wife
stacking 12 cubic meters).

In Canada we pay 3 cents pr. kWH for the electricity.
We live in cardboard houses with open windows all year around
and heat with electricity. It is on a thermostat so you don't have to
touch it at all.

In OZ they have switched winter and summer to save heat.
With this kind of innovative skills, they should have switched the
mouse with a 'roo by now. You put your hand into the pocket and
you can even fondle a tit instead of a button.

ozzie, ozzie, ozzie,
oy - oy - oy

Thanks for the great suggestions guys! Especially the
IR lamp idea below. That will also sooth my wrist
rsi.

If anyone else gets "mouse wrist" I can also recommend
lots of milk and vitamin c. Usually fixes mine within
a day or two. My right wrist cops lots of punishment,
screwdriver use all day at work, mouse use all night,
even my relaxation riding my motorbike involves twisting
my right wrist to funny angles and hanging on for dear
life!:o)

And caffeine is bad, robs calcium from bones and joints.

Thanks again for the IR lamp suggestion!

       You're probably just not moving the mouse fast enough to generate enough
heat...

Here in my third world country (California) we don't even have
electricity a great deal of the time!  When the temperature
goes over 37 C we just sit in our air conditioned cars and add
to the smog problem.

Haven't your wife threatened you with a divorce (or something worse) in
winter yet? How could you be so cruel to take her out of the sun? She'll
shrivel up.
:-)

Reminds me of a joke I got. Got some f-words in it, let me know off list
if it's OK and I'll send it to you and your wife.

Well, if you had a GOOD computer; say a Mac; you'd be able to operate
the mouse even with heavy gloves or mittens on...

(Presumably you could connect a Mac no-button optical mouse to your PC,
if you don't need the right button very much...)
