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?
We've picked some super nice items this week, like the iStick for easier file transfers between your gadgets. There's also the HP 7 Plus, a super nice, cheap Android tablet that costs only $100. We've also selected the amazing Vitruvio Speaker, which looks awesome! But there's more!

Mr. P Bookend
To prevent your overwhelming collection of books from toppling on one another, Mr. P Bookend has finally come for its rescue. Together with its shadow, Mr. P will be holding your books with his ever-famous smiling face. In this case, the bookend has been colored white such that Mr. P looks extraordinarily quirky while doing his job. The shadow, on the other hand, looks as if he’s on the run from the actual Mr. P who seems to be a bit devilish this time. The whole combo is quite an entertainer and hardly looks close to a standard bookend. But this is where lies its speciality as its got a unique look which is extremely unexpected from bookends. Let Mr. P make your literary collection stand out. (at The Gadget Flow)
There are plenty of scenarios in which you might want to move something quickly and easily from your iPhone or iPad to a PC, and doing so without bouncing your data off the cloud can be difficult — unless you have an iStick. This clever gadget is the first flash drive to feature a USB port on one end and a Apple-certified Lightning connector on the other, letting you use a companion app for moving files to and fro, as well as play media straight from the drive. It's like a 21st century Zip drive. (at Uncrate)

HP 7 Plus
Cheap Android tablets are a dime a dozen these days, but HP's targeting the budget market with its own $100 slate. The 7 Plus, a low-end 7-inch tablet, isn't going to blow you away with performance, but it should be perfectly sufficient for email, web browsing and basic apps. There's a quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8 gigs of internal storage and expandability via a microSD slot. You also get a 1024 x 600 IPS display, low-res front and rear-facing cameras, WiFi and 25 gigs of lifetime cloud storage, courtesy of Box. (at Engadget)
Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man drawing. Connected to the external structure with rubber wires along the diagonal, the speaker moves with the sound waves, exhibiting the "movement of sound". Vitruvio connects to any music device (stereo, ipod, iphone, etc..) and has an external structure that can be made of solid wood or metal, the ball can be made of metal or ceramic. (at Mocoloco)
