ways to keep hands warm while typing

Brrr, I can barely feel my fingers.

I work in a relatively cold environment (it's about 57F in here right now), and my fingers are having a hard time absorbing the rapid impact of the keyboard.

Do you know of any ways to warm up your fingers while typing? Maybe some sort of thin typing glove? How about a heated keyboard?

Aanyways, IIII beetere go noww.

When I was working in a very cold industrial unit, I'd wear fingerless gloves. Anything with fingers felt seriously weird and was hard to type in.

I'll second the fingerless glove idea. I use weightlifting gloves, since I have those anyway.

Second the heater, get one of those tiny ceramic jobs, hardly bigger than a computer speaker.
