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?
Here we are with another set of novelty items for you guys! We've selected the very handy ASUS Chromebit, to turn any of your displays into a computer. There's also a very cheap 3D Printer, the Tiko, which seems pretty cool! We've also picked an amazing piece of decoration, a wood chart from the folks at "Below the Boat". But there's more!

The ASUS Chromebit enables you to turn any display into a full computer. Smaller than a candy bar, powered by a Rockchip 3288 processor, it features a 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and will run Chrome OS. All you need to do is plug it into an HDMI port, connect a BT keyboard and mouse and you’re ready to go. The ASUS Chromebit will be available for less than $100 USD later in the year. (at Like Cool)
Tiko – The Unibody 3D Printer
Tiko is the 3D printer you’ve been waiting for. Simple, accessible, and dependable, all for a pledge of $179. As inventors, we use 3D printers all the time. We love 3D printing and all the doors it opens, but we don’t like our printers. It seems like every day something jams, breaks, shifts, or fails. Even when our printers do work, they need fine-tuning to print well. All in all, we probably spend more time working on our printers than on our inventions. Sure, there are some high-end machines out there that consistently work well—but why do they have to be so expensive?Go into a store with $179 and see what you can get. A microwave, a mini-fridge, a vacuum, etc. All of these products are pretty complicated, and no one expects them to require fixing every week. We believe a 3D printer shouldn’t be any different.

Below the Boat wood charts
Starting with a bathymetric chart (the underwater equivalent of a topographic map), the contours are laser-cut into sheets of Baltic birch and glued together to create a powerful visual depth. Select layers are hand-colored blue so it's easy to discern land from water, major byways are etched into the land, then the whole thing's framed in a custom, solid-wood frame and protected seamlessly with a sheet of durable, ultra-transparent Plexiglas. The result is stunning. (at Below the Boat)
LG 34UM67: UltraWide FreeSync
Amazing new 34" display by LG. For a complete review check AnandTech.
Canon XC10 4K Camcorder
It doesn't have the biggest sensor or a wide range of lenses. But if you're looking for a compact, affordable way to get into 4K video recording, the Canon XC10 4K Camcorder could be just the ticket. At its heart is a one-inch 12-megapixel CMOS sensor with up to 12 stops of dynamic range, paired with a 10x Wide-Angle Zoom Lens with optical image stabilization and Digic DV5 signal processor. Other features include dedicated microphone and headphone jacks, a tilting LCD monitor, and dual-band Wi-Fi for remote operation and previewing. The result is great looking video, no elaborate equipment required.(at Uncrate)
