Chilly office? A new product promises to warm your frigid fingers while you work or play, Digital Trends reports.

Danish students Emil Frolund and Mads Sorensen recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the Envavo Heatbuff, "an infrared short wave heater" that you can place by your keyboard, according to the product description.

It "warms your hands but does not heat up itself or your keyboard. ... Your hands will never get too hot, so you won't feel the heat in a way that's uncomfortable," the description continues. "Even if you sit in a chilly environment, your hands will remain warm."

Frolund and Sorensen came up with the idea last year while they were playing video games, according to the Kickstarter page.

"Both were being (taken) out by some noob, and as real gamers, their excuses were plentiful," the page reads. "Lousy teammates, laggy internet, cold fingers."

As of Monday morning, the pair had already raised $30,881 – more than $20,000 more than their original goal.
