The Perfect Office - Katana Bookend, HAL 9000, Polaroid Android Camera and More
- Jan 14, 2013
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?
Today we got the super fun Katana bookend to bring life to your shelves. Also, there's the super useful removable chalkboard wallies. Many of you will love the TYLT Band Wall Charger for Apple Gadgets... pretty slick design. For all the 2001: A Space Odyssey fans out there, there's the mind-blowing HAL 9000 replica. And what about the first Android based camera? Here's the Polaroid IM1936. Don't forget that you may suggest via twitter: @paulogabriel - I hope you enjoy these! Cheers. ;)
Katana Bookend is a bookend that looks like the books being impaled through the heart by a sword. Actually, it is just two halves of a fake sword attached to heavy faux books that sit on either side—and blend in—with your own collection. (at Like Cool)
Removable Chalkboard Wallies
These 9″x12″ slate gray chalkboard panels are brilliant! Use inside a kitchen cupboard, a kid’s locker, on the fridge, or even right on the wall. The panels are repositionable, removable, and won’t harm most wall coverings. Chalk is included so you can start writing your notes and doodles wherever you choose! (at The Gadget Flow)
TYLT Band Wall Charger
A company called TYLT, design an iPhone charger that replaces wire with a flat ribbon to keep your bag clutter free. Dubbed the “Band Wall Charger,” the new charger wraps the ribbon around the cylindrical plug for clean and organized storage. (at Like Cool)
HAL 9000 Life-Size Replica
The HAL 9000 Life-Size Replica wasn't just based on memories. This replica is based on the actual studio blueprints, for exactly perfection (even down to the original studio files for the HAL 9000 label). In the film, the lens was a very rare and expensive Nikkor fish-eye lens. The HAL 9000 Life-Size Replica features a custom-ground replica, with a sticker of the writing on the Nikkor lens (in case you want your HAL to be accurate down to the close-ups).
But wait, there's so much more. Of course the HAL 9000 Life-Size Replica has a red LED eye. And of course he talks (one of 15 movie quotes, randomly cycled through). But get this: HAL 9000 also responds to your voice. That's right, say something to HAL longer than 1.2 seconds, and it'll activate a sound clip. OR, point almost any IR remote at him and press a button for a sound clip.(at Think Geek)
Holga DSLR Filter Turret
Imagine how convenient it would be if you can change the filter of your camera just as quickly and easily as dialing a number! This neat little SLF (Special Lens & Filter) Turret on a Holga Lens would do just that for you! There are 18 types of special effect lenses and filters on the turret. After installation of the Holga Lens, you can “dial” for your choice of filter and you are ready to shoot in no time! The product will provide a touch of “Holga” to your images.Compatible to all Canon DSLR. (at The Gadget Flow)
Polaroid IM1836 Android Camera
Not content to live life as an Android-powered point-and-shoot, the Polaroid iM1836 Android Camera combines the power of a smartphone with the flexibility and optical quality of an interchangeable lens camera. It comes standard with a 10-30mm zoom lens, and offers compatibility with all Micro Four Thirds lenses via an adapter. Specs include an 18 megapixel sensor, Android 4.1, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, 1080p video recording, a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen, and one-button sharing to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, and Vimeo. The countdown to the first Android-powered DSLR starts... now. (at Uncrate)
