The PlayStation 3 (or is it PLAYSTATION 3?) isn't even out yet, but that hasn't stopped Logitech from announcing the upcoming availability of its ChillStream controller for the increasingly divisive gaming console. Making use of "exclusive, patented technology" (a tiny fan), the ChillStream is able to pump up to 3.41 cubic feet of air around your leathery hands every minute, thus "chilling" them.

The ChillStream controller will hit stores at the system's launch in November and will retail for $39.99. You can spend $40 on a controller with a fan inside to keep your hands dry or just keep a towel or napkin nearby. Your call.
