Napping In Your Cubicle? Totally Possible

Screen Shot 2015-08-03 at 2.22.30 PM

Done are the days where you need to find a sofa somewhere in the office to catch a couple of minutes of shuteye during your break. The Desk Chair for Sleepy Workers by Thanko turns from a regular office chair into a full fledged bed at the pull of a lever. In seconds you’ll be able to get horizontal and get that power nap in, so the rest of your day can be as productive as possible. It’s 29,800 yen (US$241). The only problem is you’ll have to deal with a Japanese website to order the thing.

Power Pen: Write and Charge

Power Pen

 

The Power Pen is the one pen to rule them all. Reach for it every time you need to jot down notes, sketch ideas, or charge your phone. Yep, you read that right: the pen doubles as a backup battery so you make one more call or send a few more messages before it completely runs out of juice. It only has a 700 mAh capacity, so it can’t charge your battery fully, but that’s better than nothing, right?

The Power Pen’s ink tip also retracts so you can use it as a stylus. It comes with micro USB and lightning connectors, and you can charge the pen up easily by plugging it into a USB port. It retails for $40.

One More Thing Your Phone Can Do: iPhone Laser Pointer

iPhone LAser Pointer

 

What can you do with your iPhone? Or better yet, the question should read: what can’t you do with it? First and foremost, it’s obviously a phone. Then it spins off into a camera, an audio and video recorder, a note pad, an organizer, a fitness tracker, a video game console, a music player, a map, and so on and so forth.

The capabilities of most smartphones are extended further with accessories like the iPin iPhone laser pointer. Dubbed as the “world’s smallest laser pointer,” the iPin fits right into the iPhone’s 3.5mm earphone jack. The entire thing weighs less than a gram and is powered by your phone, so there’s no need to replace batteries at all. The iPin also has an on/off switch so you don’t have to take it out when you want to use your phone in the middle of presentations.

It’s available online for $39.99.

Tell Tale Push Pins Tell All At a Glance

Tell Tale Push Pins

 

Too much of something often turns it into something undesirable. Take notes and reminders, for instance. A few tacked onto the board might be useful to remember the stuff that you should, but tacking everything from to-do lists and press releases to inspirational photos and other random stuff takes that usefulness away.

If you’re having a hard time unpinning stuff, then an alternative are these Tell Tale Push Pins. They basically tell you what they’re holding onto the board even before you check it out, so you’ll have a clue what it is without having to check every single note.

Each set of 8 is priced at $9.

Coffee Socializing: Just Link ‘Em and Drink

Link Mugs

 

There’s nothing wrong with having breakfast all by your lonesome. But if you can enjoy your usual cup of Joe with a round of stimulating conversation to go with it, then why not? There’s only so many (or so few) cups that your two hands can carry though, and that’s where these mugs come in.

The Link Mugs look like typical, white ceramic mugs. Plain even, except for a cross protrusion on one side. Look on the other side, and you’ll find a similarly-shaped recess on the mug. It’s pretty awesome what such a design addition can do, because it allows you to link one mug to the other, so you can carry several of them with ease at a time without worrying about spilling stuff or burning your fingers.

They’re available online for $45.

Every Office Needs One: 4-Piece Tri Board Set

4-Piece Tri Board Set

 

Can’t decide whether you need a cork board or a white board for your office? What about for those times when a blackboard might be more appropriate? Don’t forget a magnetic board for all the other stuff you need to organize, too. No need to pick just one though with the 4-Piece Tri Board Set, because with this thing on your wall, you get all four.

The triangular design gives it an artistic look and feel, so it won’t be an eyesore on your wall. There’s a dedicate space for your chalky scribbles, plus a magnetic area and cork board where you can stick or tack on notes, reminders, ideas, and to-do lists. There’s also a dry-erase triangle in the mix in case you prefer writing with a pen than a chalk.

It’s available for $60.

Stressed Out? Desktop Fireworks is an Instant Mid-Day Pick-Me-Up

Desktop Fireworks

Stress can make people do crazy things. It can make someone feel trapped and so wrapped up in trying to resolve the issue at hand that it makes them forget about the other things that matter. Work or school, after all, isn’t everything. So when you start feeling overwhelmed, hopeless, defeated, and helpless, then here’s what you should do: hit the Desktop Fireworks button and watch your desk come to life. You should call a friend afterward to talk things through, though, when the excitement has died down.

The Desktop Fireworks is the brainchild of Tomomi Sayuda. It’s actually a set of fun lights, noisemakers, and confetti crammed into random stationary and supplies you’d commonly find on a table.

The Only Hub You’ll Ever Need: 28-Port USB Hub

28Port USB

 

Most laptops come with at least two USB ports on average. Some come built with as much as four. But if you transfer files from one external drive to another while printing stuff and adding songs to your iPod on the side, then you’ve got no more port left for hooking your camera or tablet or whatever else up. Not that you should be doing all of these things at once, but if you do, then you might want to get one of these 28-port USB hubs.

It looks like a power strip, only instead of sockets, it’s line with USB hubs instead. As the name implies, it can accommodate up to 28 connections, from flash drives and cables to connect your camera, phone, and MP3 players with your computer.

The 28-port USB hub is available online for about $62.
