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 selected a few cool things for you this week, beginning with the Lumberjack USB adapter, which is quite simple but super cute. There also the Aviiq portable laptop stand to improve ergonomics for you! And there's the Polk Woodbourne speaker for all of those who really dig awesome speakers.
Lumberjack USB Adapter
The Lumberjack is a simple USB adapter from iLoveHandles that helps you charge devices that have USB charging ports. So what’s with all the lumberjack stuff? Well, that’s because it’s encased in wood. This makes it a USB jack that’s made of lumber, which means the name is spot on, albeit a wee bit cheesy. The creators say they were inspired by all the dated wood-enclosed electronics shown in Mad Men and the Wonder Years. Perhaps they should get Sterling Cooper to come up with a better name and an ad campaign that makes the Lumberjack more appealing to the sophisticated crowd that needs USB chargers. You don’t get a USB cable with the adapter, but that shouldn’t be a problem if you’ve got one with the device. (at The Gadget Flow)
Picto wall clock
Funky 80s graphics for the wall. Georg Christensen and Erling Andersen created the Picto clock in 1984 with the idea of creating an picture of the times. The wall clock is available in four colour combinations. The clock was developed without top glass – a design detail that lets the rotating clock face come into its own as a functional wall decoration. A great gift idea for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, graduations and other special occasions. (at From Europe)
Aviiq Portable Laptop Stand
The Aviiq Portable Laptop Stand is a portable laptop stand elevates your laptop at a 12-degree angle which makes it ideal for wrist and screen visibility. The Aviiq Portable Laptop Stand folds down to a ridiculously thin 1/4 inch so it can fit perfectly into your laptop bag. Also, by elevating your laptop, the stand acts as a notebook cooling solution to help your computer run better. (at Like Cool)
Polk Woodbourne Speaker
Free your space of wires and clunky, unattractive audio systems with the Polk Woodbourne Speaker, a wireless, wood-enclosed, all-in-one speaker system. Made to sound as great as it looks, this speaker system features two one-inch 20-watt silk polymer dome tweeters and two 5.25-inch 70-watt polypropylene mid woofers. With an on-board power amplifier and processing by Dolby-Digital, as well as a range of connectivity options (including Airplay, Bluetooth, USB, optical, stereo, and ethernet), you can listen to music from nearly any device, while enjoying it exactly how the artist intended. And with a half-inch-think MDF enclosure finished in wood veneer, as well as a curved front lattice grill, it looks just as good as it sounds. (at Uncrate)
