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 got some amazing new products from our beloved Wacom, like the Cintiq Companion, Cintiq Companion Hybrid and the new Intuos Creative Stylus. There's also some great little gadgets like the Corsair 3.0 Flash Drive 32GB. If you love Sci-Fi you might enjoy the Sigmo voice translation device, which is pretty amazing!
Corsair Flash Voyager Mini 32GB USB 3.0
Flash Voyager Mini delivers USB 3.0 performance in a compact aluminum housing, with a durable rubber strap and ring for convenient key-ring use. Just plug it in and it works, with Windows, Mac OS X and even Linux. (at 7 Gadgets)
Smartphone Film Scanner
If you’re a shutterbug who can’t choose between film and digital, meet your new best friend. The Smartphone Film Scanner is a light, portable device that quickly and easily converts 35mm film into digital images. Simply turn on the scanner’s backlight, insert your film, and snap a photo using your smartphone. Then use the free LomoScanner app or your phone’s camera to edit, email, post, and print your pics to your heart’s content. (at The Gadget Flow)
Sigmo Voice Translation Device
If you've spent any amount of time traveling abroad, you've likely run into a language barrier, making it hard to get the most out of your trip. With the Sigmo Voice Translation Device you can avoid those issues, without resorting to learning a new language. This device connects to your iOS or Android device over Bluetooth and, using existing services, translates your voice into one of 25 different languages. Just speak into the microphone and it will translate everything you say, playing it back over the speaker. It's small and light, so you can bring it anywhere, attach it to your clothes, or hang it around your neck. (at Uncrate)
Instantly share your photos across social networks — or if you never learned to share, just store them in the cloud — with theQ Camera. Thanks to 3G connectivity (and internal two-gig storage for when you're off the grid) you upload each of your shots to a web-based service called theQ Lab, where you can store, edit, and post photos from any device. Alternatively, with two pushes of the upload button, you can directly share a picture to any networks you've already configured. This small, five megapixel camera is also waterproof, features a built-in diffused LED flash, manual focus wheel, and a fixed lens with an f2.4 aperture. (at Uncrate)
Wacom Cintiq Companion, Cintiq Companion Hybrid, Intuos Creative Stylus
The Cintiq Companion is a professional creative tablet that runs Windows 8. The standalone machine boasts a 1920×1080, 13.3” display, the 2,048 levels of pen pressure you've come to expect from Wacom, both front and rear cameras, and a 256 or 512 GB hard drive. This is aimed at the user looking for the all-in-one solution.
The Cintiq Companion Hybrid, meanwhile, is targeted at the user who works primarily off of a desktop machine. The Hybrid has the same screen size (and a seemingly identical form factor) to the Companion, as well as the same dual cameras, but runs Android rather than Windows and features a smaller (16 or 32 GB) hard drive. This is essentially meant to be the tablet you use for your desktop machine, but it can be detached and carried around for light sketching duty.
Cintiq Companion Hybrid
The new Intuos Creative Stylus is aimed at the iPad user. What should really set the ICS apart from regular styluses is that it not only has the 2,048 pressure levels, but thankfully incorporates palm-rejection technology, so you can finally rest your hand on the iPad as you sketch. (at Core77)
