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 simple, yet very useful items for your office and daily use, like the Astropad, a nice app that will turn your Apple device into an awesome graphic tablet for your Mac. There's also the awesome digital protractor for angles on the go! Musicians will find the Jack Racks key rack their only choice! But there's more!

While there are plenty of apps out there that attempt to turn your mobile device into a graphics tablet, most are buggy, slow, are a pain to setup, and rarely work. Built by former Apple engineers, Astropad transforms your iPhone or iPad into a Retina-screened, professional graphics tablet for your Mac, is easy to setup, and actually works when you need it most. You can even enjoy a zero lag experience working offline, as it works both wirelessly and over USB. This professional tool for photo editing and drawing is also now available as an Apple watch app for customizable shortcuts from your wrist. (at Uncrate)
Using those plastic half circles at school for measurement will sound history now if you have the Digital Protractor. The idea behind this design is to take the guesswork out of measurement forever. These rulers are super durable and made out of stainless steel. The beauty of the design is that it will not only measure angles but also lock it down to any angle you need at a certain point in time. That way, you can draw the lines at exactly the angle you desire. The digital accuracy of this protractor is about ±0.3°. There’s a hanging hole on each ruler you can use while hanging or anchoring it for measurements. Overall, a pretty useful accessory you can add to your kit of DIY tools sometime soon.

Jack Racks – musicians only key rack
Do you live for music? Are your every waking thoughts of guitar riffs and drum solos that could drive an audience wild? If you fit that description, then you very likely only want music on your brain, in your home, and to hopefully be your full time job, if it’s not already. We like surrounding ourselves with things that fit our personal sense of style, and if your life revolves around the musical world, then it would only make sense that your aesthetic is that of amps, mics, and musical instruments of all sorts.
Musicians, just like everyone else, have a set of keys that need a place to go when they get home. So long as you don’t aim for the stereotypical rocker life, you likely want to keep your home somewhat in order. There is something to be said about a look and level of professionalism at home. These Jack Racks would be the perfect way to tie into your musical world, while still being a useful aspect of your life. (at Coolest Gadgets)
Stelton Theo Slow Brew Coffee Maker
Sometimes you need coffee immediately. That's what coffee shops are for. When you're ready to savor a cup, grab the Stelton Theo Slow Brew Coffee Maker. This set is made from handsome matte black stoneware with a shiny glaze, and has a three-hole filter funnel for slower run through and added flavor, a bamboo lid to keep the contents warm, and a silicone collar to protect your hands while pouring. Holds 0.6L of coffee. (at Uncrate)
