I hope you guys enjoy this brief selection, and together we can make this an awesome new weekly post! Cheers. ;) Good Afternoon Clock The Good Afternoon clock by Japan's Mile Project almost gives the impression that time is but a ghost.

Made from porcelain, wood and cork, Roth chose the materials not only for the aesthetic appeal they add to desktops, but also because porcelain's density and "acoustical deadness" rivals that of wood or plastic enabling the cone shape. (via Cool Hunting) RGB Sensor Pen This is RGB sensor pen, that analyses any object, detects its color, and instatly mixes inks so that when you write down, the color you see is the one you've picked. (via Eu Quero!) Scratch-n-Scroll noteable mousepad Can't seem to keep an unused stack of sticky notes near your dear mouse? Fret not, as the geniuses over at Quirky have popped out yet another 'well duh / must-have' product in the Scratch-n-Scroll. Rather than promising that its newest surface can help you frag more intently, smell better or just appear more heroic, this 'noteable mousepad' is apt to be one of the poorer mousing mats on the market. (via Engadget) Toshiba 5400RPM 640GB hard drives It's no speed demon, but Toshiba's newest 2.5-inch hard drive sure lets you store an awful lot of precious memories on a single unit.

The Embody chair sells online from Design Within Reach for $1400. (via Cool Hunting) G's 15-inch OLED screen Amazing how a few well framed PR shots can reignite gadget lust, just when it seems extinguished. Sure, LG's 15-inch OLED HDTV will probably follow the path of Sony's $2,500 11-inch XEL-1 to the land of ridiculously overpriced trinkets that few can or will purchase and eventually falls by the wayside when larger, cheaper options become available. (via Engadget) Asus Eee Keyboard We spotted some Asus keyboards last week, but none were nearly as potentially awesome as the official Eee Keyboard. Featuring wireless HDMI, it's a "fully functional PC" with full QWERTY and a mini secondary touchscreen. (via Gizmodo)
