Sweaters, jackets and long johns are all \"wearables\" that keep us warm, but they aren't all that smart -- if you walk into a room that's too hot or exercise too hard, you need to stop using them to cool down. It's an inconvenience we've grown used to, but we don't have to put up with it much longe

If you live in the northern hemisphere then you've already felt it; the cold chill that signals the onset of nature's respite. So while not slip into these Columbia Bugathermo \"high-performance\" hiking boots and give the Earth a trample while its defenses are down? These heated boots feature dual-h

USB blankets are old hat (for better or worse), but the USB Heated Shawl takes an aged concept and makes it relevant again with the addition of a single clip. Clearly designed for elderly folks who aren't kept warm enough by the bottoms of their laptops and for the billions of cubical dwellers who f

We'll go ahead and squash your hopes before you waste time pulling out the plastic -- this thing's just a concept, at least for now.

It's that time of year again. You know, the months where your typing slows to a crawl as your fingers gradually lose every ounce of feeling in them. Granted, there's a myriad options already out there to keep 'em thawed out, but this particular alternative just looks awfully practical. The USB Hand

A product some five years in the making is nearly set to hit the ice, and it's (quite literally) bringing the heat along with it. The Therma Blade, invented by Canada's own Tory Weber, is a battery-warmed ice skate that purportedly melts the ice just beneath the skater to provide the wearer with \"m

Ok, we can understand the whole heated floors thing, especially in the dead of winter where your hardwood often feels like it's going to give your toes a mild case of frostbite. But level with us here, Panasonic, if you're going to develop an electric blanket, at least have the decency and sense of

Let's face it, peripheral manufacturers have been beating around this bush for far too long, and it's about time a company finally delivered a device that would actually motivate you to finish up that thesis over the cold winter break. Sure, the G-Gloves and heated mouse did their fair share of war

While you've got your H-Bomb to keep you nice and toasty while surfing through chilly waters, and the Airvantage vest to keep your chest warm while braving the bitter cold, even the most hardcore skiers will probably admit that their fingertips go numb just a few hours after they hit the slopes.

Trying to avoid the chill that sweeps through the office during the winter months, we have been forced to either remain stationary, or do a bunny hop to get around in our USB heating slippers. Now, Thanko -- the company keeping us comfortable by our computers -- is allowing us to do the two-step wit
