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?
Check out some great picks for you these week, like the MUST-HAVE R2D2 car companion and USB charger. You'll feel like you're piloting a X-Wing. There's also the fantastic Kano DIY Computer Kits, which would be great present for kids this Christmas! Let them become computer experts as well!

Foaster looks like a miniature toaster, keeps your two of Apple’s iPhone (5, 5S, and 5C) charged at once, eliminates clutter, and looks great in your kitchen. It comes with two built-in MFI-certified Lightning connectors and USB cables. Foaster is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $79 will get you one of your very own.

R2D2 USB Car Charger
R2 units: is there anything those little guys can't do? While we don't yet have the technology in this quadrant of the galaxy for fully-automated repair droids like the R2 units from Star Wars, we can get a portion of the R2's versatility into something small enough to sit in your vehicle's cupholder.
You see, it makes R2-D2 whistle sadly when he sees a device that's run out of power. Make him bloop and bleep happily again by letting him use your vehicle's power to recharge your devices. With him plugged into your cigarette lighter socket, you can get 2.1 Amps through each of his USB charging ports, which is enough to charge two tablets or smartphones or, well, pretty much anything that charges via USB. What's that, little guy? He says, "Bloop bloop bleep," which we think means "Yay!" (at Think Geek)
Ultimate Ears Boom Speaker
While most of the available portable speaker systems out there project sound in just one direction, the Ultimate Ears Boom Speaker projects sound 360 degrees, filling any space with immersive audio. Wireless connectivity with a 50 foot range, 15 hours of battery life, and the ability to chain multiple speakers together gives it plenty of versatility and reliability. (at Uncrate)
Kano DIY Computer Kit
The Kano DIY Computer Kit aims to empower everyone from grade school kids to adults and everyone in between to build and program their own computer. These kits include all the things you need to build a functioning computer — but the fun doesn't end there. Once you've completed your computer, you are free to program games, and other software, hack into the command line, and much more. It's the embodiment of the idea of learning while doing.

Dell UltraSharp 32/34 4K monitors
4K is here to stay, what with a vast number of companies ramping up production on all types of different panels. Today, Dell is the latest one ready to join the frenzy in full force, announcing availability details for some new, super high-res monitors as part of its UltraSharp lineup. Naturally, the main feature here is the 3,840 x 2,160 resolution on them, but there's more! (at Engadget)
