A Cooling Ball – Just What We Need Right Now


I don’t know about you, but I am dying for a “cooling ball”, so when an email landed in my inbox advertising just such a ball, I clicked through with joy.

Sadly, it’s for laptops not for humans, so unless you too benefit from being raised slightly off the ground, it’s not going to be much use.

However, I bet your laptop could use one, given that the UK is suffering one of the hottest weeks of the year. Mine sounds wheezier than Rupert Murdoch right now and the base is hotter than the office radiator has ever got in its tepid lifetime.

Many of us cool our laptops by putting them on books or discarded takeaway trays to raise them off the desk slightly. The cooling ball does the same thing, just a bit more securely. There’s a smaller ball inside the first ball and they both split in half to make little stands.

Simples. Cooling.

The Cooling Ball from Brando is $8
