Mouse glove

Keeps your pinkies toasty.
  [vote for,

My house is flipping freezing at the moment (8°C). Certain housemates refuse to have the heating on high. This means that while I use my PC my hands, mainly my mouse hand, turn blue with cold.

My first thought was to have heated peripherals, this would work except it would mean buying new hardware and not using wireless.

I propose very thin gloves made of a 'Thinsulate' style material. There would be small holes on each finger so that the finger-pads do not lose sensitivity.

Some users may only require a mouse glove so packs are available with just a right/left glove. Festive colors should be available at appropriate times of the year.

Fingerless Gloves http://www.onlyglov...ngerless_gloves.htm
In various styles, if "style" is quite the right word to use in this context. [DrCurry, Oct 05 2004, last modified Oct 17 2004]

       Somebody PLEASE post a picture of a real mouse wearing gloves.

       Fingerless gloves are Widely Baked. I'm not sure that fingertipless gloves counts as any great technical advance.   

       And given that most people type with both hands, whichever hand they use for the mouse, I'm not entirely sure why you want single gloves - what are you doing with the other hand? No, wait, I don't want to know.

       8°C is not freezing, 8°C is luxury. When *I* was a student... etc.

       I have a pair of gloves that I cut the tips off of. I used scissors on the index finder and thumb of one glove. The total cost came to less than 3 USD.

       ... the entirety of human scientific knowledge filled a pamphlet.

       UnaBubba's right. + anyway, for a tidy solution to a stinker of a problem. (Gets me too at this yeartime.)   

       Wait! I get first copyright on the word 'yeartime'!

       Thanks for the link [silverstormer] but I'm afraid it lacks the cuteness I was hoping for. Thanks also [po] - nice whiskers!
dobtabulous, Nov 25 2003

       Thanks for the link [po] but I'm not sure I'd want to be wearing that whilst surfing. Somebody may come in and laugh.
silverstormer, Nov 25 2003

       And it'd get really heavy with all the water it soaks up. :P
Detly, Nov 25 2003

       What I want is a mouse with a glove sewn in it, or velcro'd.

       Thanks for the link [darksasami].
