Now that winter is upon us, it is time to start thinking about keeping warm. If you work from home, then you will know that it can cost you more than other people when it comes to paying for your heating bills.
For example, if you only work from one particular room of your home, then it is just a waste of money to be heating up your entire home, so here is one way to solve this issue – and, of course, that is the geek way!
Here are some geeky gadgets to help you stay warm this winter (and save money on your heating bills at the same time)!
USB Heating Blanket
If your work at a computer for most of the day, then you will probably notice that the room around you will start to get cold, particularly if you are the only person in the room and you work from a large room.
Although you could put several layers of clothing on, it can hamper your work somewhat if you don’t feel like you have the flexibility to move around much. But never fear, because there is a simple solution to this problem: the USB warming blanket!
USB Foot Warmer
Another computer-power gadget that can be used to help you stay warm during your daily computer work is the USB Foot Warmer.
It’s a great way to keep your feet warm and toasty, especially if you are the sort of person that has poor circulation and frequently finds their fingers and toes much colder in comparison to the rest of their body! And the best thing about this gadget? Because it’s USB-powered, you don’t need to plug it into a wall socket; all you have to do is simply plug it into your PC, Mac or laptop, and start to enjoy having warm feet!
Eberspacher Airtronic D5
A lot of people don’t work from home or an office, in fact, many people work out of all sorts of places, such as sheds, vans and boats. For those occasions, what you need is an Airtronic D5 from Eberspacher.
So if you work out of a narrowboat, for example, then you need something portable yet powerful enough to push out a lot of heat, and this is where this handy gadget comes in! Although it is designed mainly for cars and boats, it can be adapted for use pretty much anywhere!
This rather curious-looking contraption is called the DryGuy. In a nutshell, this gadget is designed to heat up your boots and shoes as quickly and effortlessly as possible! If you’ve been walking around in wet or snowy terrain, your footwear will no doubt be soaking wet.
So to combat this problem, the DryGuy was designed and developed to help dry those boots and shoes ready for your next trip outdoors. It emits air at temperatures of up to 38 degrees Celsius, and is also a good way to help eliminate smelly shoe syndrome by drying out any moisture trapped within your footwear.
