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 super nice items, like the super sweet R2D2 concrete bookends. If you like customizable items then you'll enjoy the Sonder E-Ink mechanical keyboard. Take pictures in your iPhone and get RAW files using the DXO One Camera! But there's more!

R2D2 Concrete Bookends
If you’re a Star Wars fan, chances of loving R2-D2 is high! That’s why this R2D2 Concrete Book End can be a good addition to your book collection. It’s sold individually and works as a fancy bookend to keep your goodreads in place. The fact that it’s made of concrete only makes the design even more admirable for sci-fi geeks. Want to highlight your sci-fi collection separately as compared to the other books you own? This could actually come handy for such a purpose. (at The Gadget Flow)
NIGHT Cable by Native Union
Charging your devices at home won’t be much of a problem anymore with the NIGHT Cable by Native Union. It’s often difficult to access devices when they’re recharging but this cable makes the whole process easy and hassle-free. The set includes a 10 foot range of charging cable you can use depending on your preference and requirements. The weighted knot can be anchored on any flat surface and used as and when you need it. You can choose to set the position of the knot based on the amount of cable length you require at a time. There are Apple Lightning and Micro USB versions available so that you can charge all kinds of devices in a versatile way. (at The Gadget Flow)
Sonder E-Ink Keyboard
Mechanical keyboard are pretty great. Customizable keyboards are great, too. Now there’s a company that wants to combine the two, and they’re using tiny E Ink displays to let you personalize every single key. The Sonder Keyboard is a bit more versatile, too. In addition to being able to design fully customized layouts for everything from Photoshop to GTAV, Sonder has built in Bluetooth support. So in addition to being able to connect it to a PC, Mac, or a Linux box, you can also pair it with an iPad, Android or Windows tablet, PlayStation, or just about anything else that supports Bluetooth input devices.

Kokoon Eeg Sleep Headphones
Normally, falling asleep with headphones on isn't a good thing — unless you enjoy cauliflower ear. But Kokoon EEG Sleep Headphones aren't your normal cans. Developed in conjunction with Onkyo, they're designed to be worn overnight, and pack in miniaturized dry EEG sensors that monitor your sleeping patterns. The companion app can adjust both volume and equalization as necessary to help you fall asleep, then block out potential disturbances while you sleep. And when it's nearing time to rise, it will choose the right moment in your sleeping patterns to wake you, providing a much better experience than a buzzing alarm. (at Uncrate)
DXO One Camera
It's not the first camera to use your iPhone as a viewfinder, nor the first camera with a one-inch sensor, or even the first to combine those two things. But the DxO One Camera is the first to put them in a pocketable package. Using the same 20.2 megapixel sensor found in Sony's RX100 III, it allows for much more detailed captures than the built-in camera. Its six-element lens has a maximum aperture of f/1.8 and an adjustable iris for more creative control, the pivot mount lets you take shots at any angle, the microSD slot ensures you won't burn through your phone's storage, the 1/8000 shutter lets you stop motion, and once you've captured the moment, DxO's advanced software — they test camera sensors, after all — helps make your photos look their best.
