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?
This week we've selected a bunch of little things that will make your life easier, like the Knuckler, the multi-tool to roll with the punches. If you're trying to avoid a serious case of tendinitis you might find the Mouse arm-rest support a life saver! There's also the Structure Sensor for iPad, which might be really useful for architects and interior designers!

The Knuckler: A Multi-Tool to Roll with the Punches
Hitting the scene – the Knuckler – brings together 10+ tools in just shy of 2.5” x 2.5” and 4mm thick. The multi-functional device will knock out a variety of small jobs including stripping wire, tightening hex nuts, and opening a cold beer. (at The Gadget Flow)
Mouse Arm-rest support
Compact, intuitive, comfortable mouse arm-rest support for computer users with little space in their office. (at 7 Gadgets)
Hollowed Out Reading Chair
There’s no better fit for the cramped apartment of a bookworm than the hollowed out reading chair. The chair’s innovative design allows you to sit comfortably while the hollowed out body underneath houses your home library without taking up any extra space.(at This is why I'm broke)
Suspended Shelving Unit
Fascination with the complex engineering that goes into the structure of suspension bridges, like the Golden Gate Bridge and the Akashi Kaiky Bridge, Outofstock took that inspiration and designed a shelving unit called Bridge. The shelves, manufactured by Bolia, can be used in any setting, like in your kitchen, your bathroom, or living room. The detachable suspension clips make it easy to create your own configuration that works for your needs. Simply fit the ends of the metal clips into the holes on the wooden shelves and they’ll remain secure. (at Design Milk)
Belkin Headphone splitter
Five jacks for attaching headphones or iPod devices. Mixing and fade-ins controlled by the standard controls of each MP3 player,and it also works with all MP3 and portable DVD players. (at 7 Gadgets)
If you own an iPad, you also own a fully-functioning 3D scanner — provided you buy yourself a Structure Sensor ($380). This little device comes with a bracket made to fit on the back of your iPad, right on top of the built-in camera. It connects to your iPad using a Lightning cable, and can alternatively connect to just about any other device with a USB cable. Using the sensor and your iPad, you can measure the three-dimensional space in any room, automatically capture three-dimensional models of everyday objects, and even simulate physics on top of the real world. If you're hacking inclined, you can use their SDK to develop iOS apps for it, or even take it a step further by connecting it to other devices. (at Uncrate)
