Product of the Day

No not the Cool Threads Servers, they would be more like product of the year.

Todays product is this clever handwarmer from Marks and Spencers. The handwarmer contains a gel that when you click a bit of metal in it starts an exothermic reaction and warms. The clever bit is that the reaction is reversable by just boiling the thing in water.

Today mine saw it's first use in anger. The ride to work was freezing, certainly as cold as it can get before I stop riding due to ice, the main roads were clear but side roads were not.

On arriving at work the bike locker frozen and getting it open envolved my tool kit to break the ice. It was really nice to have the hand warmer to put some life back in my fingers. Alas it did not create enough heat to melt the ice on the lock.
