The coolest arse on the planet

Plug and play!

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

There's that word "pad" again - but for buttocks this time. Not an arse-wipe, this is a "plug and play" - yes, really, cooling device to stop your bum getting sweaty in marathon gaming sessions.

Hot pink, but not sweaty

Called the USB Cooling Seat Pad, this gaming peripheral costs 25 bucks and comes in hot pink and moist orange - not the first colours that spring to mind for hardcore gamers.

The gadget contains a built-in cooling fan which sucks in air and funnels it through string-vesty holes in the seat pad.

It draws power through the USB port of any machine that has power such as a PC and a games console.

Arrows? You expect me to sit on that!

Which is nice. Maybe it would be even nicer to get up from time to time and stretch those legs... no? Then be sure to be packing a "pee bottle".

Go, gamer, go!
