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! Comment telling us your suggestions, or even better, you may tell us via twitter (mine and fabio's), using #abdz_ofc so we can check it. Alright? I hope you guys enjoy this brief selection. Cheers! ;)

Logitech G19 Keyboard
Logitech's G19 gaming keyboard—which borders on ludicrous with its embedded Linux mini-computer and full-blown LCD monitor—is the best one they've made yet, even if it doesn't quite reach its full mind-blowing potential. (via Gizmodo)
Screw work, LET'S JAM! "...once you've loaded your library and presets you can switch from a Kenny G to a Daft Punk at the simple click of a key. Heck, you can even configure the air pressure sensitivity as well if you're tickling for a soft mood, or just feeling lazy. And those funky LED lights, you ask? Well, they're actually indicators for the different modes you're in rather than just being pretty." (via Engadget)

I know I might be a bit late in the game showing this product, but for some reason I missed it and man it looks cool. I am talking about LYFE, a levitating vase for plants that rotate. If there are one thing that calls my attention is levitation or anything that tries to defy gravity. Now add to that a bit of polygonal surface and boom, you have a winner. If you are interested to know more about it, check out their Kickstarter campaign and reserve yours.
I believe most of you guys have seen the Google News personal project that George Kvasnikov put together. In my opinion, it was a great exercise on how to apply the Material Design concepts to a real product. These kinds of projects always give us freedom to do what we think is right, however we don't have the constraints of the real world. But as a personal project the outcome is amazing and so is the presentation.
Product design is one of the most sought after fields nowadays. In order to design products a design must have a grasp of the whole creative process, from conception, UX, visuals, user studies and of course prototyping. There are several tools and prototyping frameworks, most of them requiring coding skills.
