The Perfect Office - Christmas 2012 Special

The Perfect Office - Christmas 2012 Special

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? Today is our Christmas 2012 special post! Today it's all about all kinds of gift suggestions... for you to give something special to everyone: from your dog to your little brother. There's plenty awesome stuff for you to check today. Don't forget that you may suggest via twitter: @paulogabriel - I hope you enjoy these! Cheers. ;) Brought to you by: Wanmokku Wanmokku is a minimal design created by Japan-based Torafu Architects. The initial inspiration for the design came from an informal encounter with a Jack Russell Terrier. Through careful observation, the designers noticed that the dog would always come into close proximity to the clothes of the owner – most likely due to the reassuring scent and pleasant touch of the fabric. Torafu decided to take this interesting observation a step further by creating a furniture piece which would use the owner’s old clothes as a foundation for where a dog could play and rest. The elastic nature of the clothes forms a hammock like surface when attached to the frame. Depending on the season, the user can also adjust the material of the clothing according to the temperature. The construction of this design is incredibly simple as well; the assembly involves attaching two pieces of plywood frame and a wooden deck. The hinge at the front of the design is necessary for the stability of the frame as well as acting as a tiny stair for the dog to step on. (at Design Milk) Tiny Tim Book Light 5.1 inches tall with an LED bulb and on/off switch. Clips to books/e-readers or freestanding. (at Like Cool) Alias Barbell You won't be using it to train for the World's Strongest Man competition, but if all you're looking for is enough weight to keep tone while you're sitting at your desk, the Alias Barbell is all you need. Available in 1kg (2.2lbs) or 2kg (4.4lbs) varieties, these sleek fitness implements are made from chromed casting brass, and feature thermoplastic rubber on the ends to keep your desk — and the weight — from getting scratched up. Designed by the one and only Philippe Starck. (at Uncrate) Custom Movie Action Figures Ever wish you could have an action figure for your favorite movie characters that fall outside the realm of kid-friendly films? Like, for instance, Travis Bickle, Michael Myers, or Mad Max? Now you can. These Custom Movie Action Figures are mostly custom-made and come in custom packaging that looks like something you'd buy in a store. In addition, some of your favorites that actually do have figures — like Indy and Darth Vader — get new packaging that makes it appear as if they'd been culled from the ranks of GI Joe. Perfect for decorating the ol' home theater entrance. (at Uncrate) Rifle Umbrella Bang! There goes the rain. We’d be surprised if it messed with you again, but if it does just pull the trigger and the canopy shoots out and into action. Perfect for the gun lover, NRA member, hunter and military collector in your life. The end even has a site on it! Metal shaft, simulated wood grip. The stock has been scaled down slightly to make this incredible umbrella more comfortable to hold.

The durable polycarbonate exterior with glass interior withstands daily use and provides fresh-tasting water and tea.

At first glance, it appears to be nothing more than a matrix of seemingly randomly arranged letters. Only the gentle touch of a button reveals it is half past eight.

Plus it includes a line-input so you can enjoy your music with any audio player. (at 7 Gadgets) Jabra Solemate Speaker No, it's not a speaker for your shoes. Instead, the Jabra Solemate Speaker gets its name from its sneaker-like rugged bottom tread. Powered by a rechargeable battery good for 8 hours of continuous play, the Solemate pairs with your devices via Bluetooth 3.0, and features built-in DSP for optimal sound, three front-facing speakers, a 3.5mm input for non-wireless (dumb) devices, and an included sound bag for added protection when jamming outdoors.

It is definitely a case of experiencing a large viewing real estate once, and finding it rather difficult to revert to what you were used to. Not only that, the expansive display also enables additional spreadsheet columns to be viewed simultaneously, or you can opt to read a two-page document side-by-side. Other than that, graphics professionals, too, will find the LG EA93 UltraWide Monitor to be an outstanding device. The monitor itself allows artists to see more as well as do more with their time. Being seen by some (pun not intended) as the ultimate multitasking tool, the 4-Screen Split feature will divide the screen into two to four segments, where each of them is able to be uniquely customized. For entertainment purposes, the UltraWide Monitor’s 21:9 aspect ratio remains very close to the dimensions of movie theater screens, and thanks to its cinematic dimensions, the monitor can show off films just the way they were meant to. Gamers too, are not left out with this new monitor, as one can play games as well as videos from their smartphones on the monitor thanks to the included MHL connection, and throw in another pair of 7W stereo speakers, and you get quite the immersive entertainment experience. No idea on pricing, but the LG UltraWide Monitor will arrive in South Korea early November. (at Coolest Gadgets)
