I’ve never been too sure about using warming products powered by my computer, but I’m slowly coming around. That might because it’s 14°F in Boston today, and my room, which is at the top of the house, is freezing . Days like this make me wish I’d never ventured out of Gadgetbox’s subterranean HQ.
this USB-powered blanket looks fuzzy and delightful. Of course it comes from Brando, the USB heating specialists (seriously, I think that’s all they do). It runs just $25, and by sucking power from the computer instead of your power strip, like those electric heaters, it might actually not blow the rather tetchy ancient fuses that keep my house’s electricity flowing. Plus, it looks like a bomb-ass cape.
