Antec Notebook Cooler 200

In keeping with my run-up-to-Christmas accessory coverage I have acquired a couple of notebook coolers from Antec to give the Gadgetoid once over.

As I don’t have my laptop handy in the office I have conceived a genius alternative use for one of these, the Antec Notebook Cooler 200.

Foot cooling.

No. I’m not kidding. Mr. Farley himself has been known to place a desk fan underneath his desk for the purpose of keeping his feet cool and comfortable in the fluctuating office climate. The Antec Notebook Cooler 200 does a fantastic job of this, and this alternative use could actually warrant the creation of another product- a fan assisted, USB powered, posture aiding foot rest… if such a thing does not already exist. Antec, if you’re listening then a tiny redesign could yield you a whole new product that employees would lobby their employers to purchase!

I’m really not kidding…

And yes, I do wear my socks inside-out… I find the seams irritating!
