We've seen some great gadgets and equipment for designers. So many cool stuff, that we could actually assemble infinite perfect office spaces! Every week we'll assemble a perfect office, and we'd like you to help us. What equipment would the perfect office have?
Not only gadgets and equipment, but also furniture, sound system, gaming stuff (for lunch time!). A designer is totally allowed to dream with the perfect office, and that's what we're gonna do here! Also, tell us your suggestions, or even better, you may tell us via twitter, using #abdz_ofc so we can check it. Alright? I hope you guys enjoy this brief selection.
No More Device Dropping
Ever dropped your phone or e-reader? You are in an elite club if you have not. Personally, I would have to say JFK airport was my worst. I was, typing on the escalator when imbalance took over and wham! There went the smartphone, tumbling down the escalator like a slinky. Yes, expletives followed. Face it, technology is cool but we have our klutzy tendencies. FLYGRIP is a device that we should all check out to help preserve our devices. FLYGRIP’s basic principle is to extend your reach while helping secure your phone or e-reader at the same time. A spring loaded clip securely adheres to your device, or case. (at Coolest Gadgets)
Real wood housings, soft ear cushions, a lightweight headband, and a foldable design provide beauty, comfort, and portability to seamlessly fit into any lifestyle. When it comes to audio, we all have slightly different preferences. So when everyone here at C. Crane agreed that these wood headphones sound incredible, we began to get excited. When they out performed “industry standard” studio monitor headphones, our excitement was justified. High fidelity 40mm drivers produce a surprisingly flat response, which makes them great for musical and home studio applications. The lows are solid, yet not overbearing. The upper frequencies are detailed and smooth. Superior spatial imaging puts you in the middle of the music. (at 7 Gadgets)
USB Toaster Hub and Thumbdrives
The drives themselves come in four varieties. From lightest color to darkest, there's Tato, Butta, Ry Ry, and Crisp! The hub is silver with four slots for your favorite 4 pieces of memorytoast. You can, of course, insert your own thumbdrive, but where's the fun in that? They've also thrown in an SD Card slot, so your new shiny hub can perform double-duty as a card reader! (at Think Geek)
AViiQ Quick Change Universal Dock Adapter
This cable combines a microUSB, miniUSB, and an Apple 30-pin connector into one cable. The flat ribbon cable is 5.5? long and weighs only 1.5 oz, so you won’t even notice it’s in your bag. One end has a normal USB plug, and the other has a swivel head multi-connector with the three connectors. There’s even a clip on one end of the cable so you can clip it to a pocket or your bag, just like a pen. The Quick Change Universal Dock Adapter is normally $29.99, but it’s available now for $23.99.
