GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — If you're like me and are always cold at work or in the office, you're probably used to wearing a parka indoors and certainly know the struggle to keep warm.

This week, I'm testing out a product that might help you beat the bitterly cold winter weather.

I'm trying out a Heating USB Mouse Pad. I got it on Amazon for $24. You place your hand inside the mouse pad and can adjust the heat from high to low settings and also put it on a timer for up to several hours.

Click the video above to see if the heated mouse pad works or if it's simply a cute but unnecessary accessory to have around the office.
