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 selected some amazing tech items for you! There's the Sony 4K Ultra HD Media Player to step up on the new video technology. There's also the Nomad Desktop CNC Mill, which seems to carve your designs into wood! But there's more!

Less & More Desk organizer
This desk organizer, from Less & More, consists of two pieces that join together. One piece has holes of various sizes, plus a compartment that would hold a wallet or something of a similar size. The second piece has slots to hold paper and notes, a separate slot that's the right size for a cell phone, and two magnets to hold a few paper clips. Here we see the space-vs-storage tradeoff: This organizer is 10 inches deep (compared to the Vitra toolbox, for example, which is 7 inches deep), which will be too large for some end-users. And the design creates some hard-to-use space in the areas to the left and right of the piece storing the papers and the cell phone—fine if you have space to spare, but not if desktop space is limited.

Sony RX100 III
Typically when a camera gets a sequel, it replaces the old model. Not so with the Sony RX100 III. While this powerful pocket cam boasts the same basic build as its predecessors — including the same terrific 1-inch, 20.1 MP back-illuminated CMOS sensor — it features an all-new Zeiss 24-70mm lens that gives you a f/1.8 aperture at the wide end and f/2.8 at 70mm, making for more pleasing bokeh. Other new features include the blazing fast Bionz X processor, a pop-up OLED electronic viewfinder, and an articulated LCD that can tilt 180º upwards, making for the best selfies you've ever shot.

Nomad Desktop CNC Mill
Forget desktop 3D printers — if you want a machine to help you make truly useful things out of raw materials, check out the Nomad Desktop CNC Mill. Designed for use by amateurs and experts alike, it comes with simplified software to get you up and running that hides the complexity of a traditional CNC. It boasts a machining area of 8" x 8" x 3", a high-power brushless DC motor to power the spindle, accuracy better than .001", and — perhaps most importantly — the ability to work with a variety of plastics, wood, brass, and even aluminum, letting you go from idea to real, actual object in no time.
