Heat yourself, not your space

Do It

Why heat an entire building just to warm the few square feet your body occupies? It’s not your icebox office or drafty living room that needs warming. It’s you, and a few things you’re using right now. Build your own micro-heated workstation and you can read GOOD all day long in toasty comfort, without the waste.

Light bulb: 50 cents
Dog bed heater: $50
Heated keyboard: $45
Heated mouse: $25
Total $120.50

1. Mount a directional 40 watt incandescent light bulb, focused on the center of your body mass.
2. Place a dog bed heater at the base of your heated workstation, to heat your feet.
3. Use a heated keyboard and mouse.
