Peg: Multipurpose hub
Meet Peg. It’s a multipurpose, adjustable hub that holds all of your things together in one spot. Much like a pegboard you see in garages or workshops, Peg is an aluminum base with holes that you fill with the provided pegs to display your smartphone, tablet, notepads, jewelry, or office supplies. From the Ottawa-based firm The Federal, the simple, design sits on your desktop or table and keeps everything organized and within reach. (at Design Milk)
The Balance Bookshelf by Cush Design Studio is a wall mounted bookshelf that helps you visualize your stack of read books vs. unread books, nd thus provide motivation to get some reading done. Good way to enhance reading. (at Like Cool)
The Eyestrain Reducing Task Lamp
This is the LED task lamp that mimics natural daylight to reduce glare and eyestrain. The 72 high-powered LEDs generate 504 lumens of full-spectrum white light that illuminates books, crafts, or computer screens with a distortion-free glow. A three-level dimmer switch on the lamp’s support operates with a swipe of a finger, making it easy to choose maximum brightness for viewing fine details, or a more subtle glow for computer work.

In a partnership with Korg sure to please electronics tinkerers and synth musicians alike, LittleBits is the perfect combination of DIY circuit-board construction and musical exploration. Each kit — whether you choose the base kit, the premium kit, or the deluxe kit — requires no soldering or programming, all you need to do is plug your circuits together, add found materials, and start playing. The kits also include a 35-page instruction booklet that contains all the details you need to construct your own keytar, synth spin table, noise-making shoes, and much more. Or you can use your imagination to construct the homemade synth instrument of your dreams. (at Uncrate)
Bolt Portable USB Charger
The Bolt Portable USB Charger is the world’s smallest combination wall and battery USB charger for the iPhone and Android devices. It works as a wall charger, and also has a built in 3000mAh rechargeable battery that has enough juice to top-up two smartphones with a full charge. It’s a simple design with no pretense of making a style statement. The Bolt’s beauty lies in being supremely useful, portable and hassle-free. It is a compact charger whose wall prongs fold in so that you can easily slip it into a pouch or into a corner in your backpack. When you’re in the outdoors or traveling, it’s your ideal travel companion that keeps your phones juiced until you reach civilization and get to recharge the battery. (at The Gadget Flow)
Nimbus Personal Dashboard
Information surrounds us at every turn in our daily lives — we're consumed with numbers, whether it's the number of emails we have yet to read, miles we've run that week, or minutes (perhaps hours) we'll spend in traffic on the way to work. The Nimbus Personal Dashboard gives you a visually intriguing way of displaying all that data, so you can consume it at a glance. In order to set it up, you just pair it with an iOS or Android app, choose which data sources feed to which gauge, and let the dials start turning. Uses for it are seemingly endless, as it syncs with a huge array of services, including your FitBit, your email provider, and your favorite social media sites. (at Uncrate)
