Brilliant: Shelfpack Is The Suitcase For Those Who, Well, Live Out Of Their Suitcase


You know the type: they travel somewhere, and never really unpack. They just get stuff from their suitcase as they need it. There’s nothing wrong with that, really, but if you’re going to be that way, why not make your life just a tiny bit more comfortable? The ShelfPack is an awesome suitcase that features an integrated collapsible shelving system. With it you can keep your clothes more organized and easily accessible. Granted, if you’re the “living out of a suitcase” type, it’s likely because you’re too lazy to bother getting your stuff out in the first place, which means you’re also unlikely to bother using the Shelfpack’s features. But hey, maybe spending $350 on this suitcase will give you enough motivation to actually use it as intended.

Soba Cable Organizer Cleans Up That Mess Behind Your Monitor


Most of us choose to entirely ignore the area behind our monitors, just because we’re too lazy to deal with the spaghetti clutter of cables. If the putting-your-head-in-the-sand technique is running thin, you could try to give the Soba cable organizer from Bluelounge. Just slip them all into the “Vortex tube”and place them where you want it. The kit comes with 3 mounting caps, which can be affixed to any surface and help route the tube in your desired path. There’s even a Y-split, in case some of your cables have completely different destinations. For $25, it’s a cheap and efficient way to today up your living space.

Trunk Dividers Stop Stuff From Sloshing Around In Your Trunk


Some of us drive around with trunks that aren’t full to the brim with useless crap, so when we go to the store to buy a gallon of milk (because someone forgot to mention we were out before the groceries were done) and put it in there, it tends to roll around for the entire drive home. It’s a first world problem, clearly, but for $13 you can fix it if it bothers you that much. The Stayhold dividers stick to the carpet that lines most car trunks, and can be placed any way you like. Create compartments where you can put only a few items, or remove them altogether when it’s time to fit the large suitcase and mozy on over to the airport for that vacation you’ve been dreaming of all year.

Great Balls Of Wire Cable Management

They’re really nothing more than a rubber ball with a slit cut in the side, but a simple design coupled with a cute pun of a product name makes me wish these Great Balls Of Wire were all over my home. Created by Søren Refsgaard, they’re designed to store excess lengths of cable (up to 5 feet, depending on thickness) which can be quite simply bundled up and crammed inside, making things look neat and tidy under your desk or behind your home theater. They’re also available in 6 bright colors to match your decor, which makes them more appealing than simply taking a knife to a tennis ball. Unfortunately I can’t seem to find them for sale anywhere, so if anyone stumbles across them, please feel free to share.

DrawerDecor Custom Organizers

In addition to drawers full of random utensils in my kitchen, as a gadget writer I also have drawers full of random chargers, cables, adapters and other contraptions I use regularly enough that I’m hesitant to throw them out. I also happen to be the type who likes his crap fairly well organized, so Keith Neilson’s DrawerDecor organization system immediately caught my eye.

Its real beauty is how modular and easy to configure it is. You start off with a ‘BaseMat’ made of sticky food-grade silicone that you trim to fit the bottom of the drawer, or even places like toolboxes and cupboards. By itself it ensures anything you place on it won’t slide around as it’s opened or closed. But the system is taken one step further with the included ‘Divitz’ dividers which stick to the BaseMat creating an infinite number of custom-sized slots for even the most irregularly shaped item. (It should definitely keep my N-Gage in place.) A 16-piece set in red, blue, orange, purple or lime runs $24.95, while a “Mix n’ Match” 3-pack is $74.85, or exactly the same price as 3 regular sets.

AC Adapter Rangers

To some people, a tangled cord or a desk full of messy cables can be an emergency worthy of calling in the fire brigade. But you can save yourself the hefty fines from calling 911 for your so-called ’emergency’ and get a set of these AC Adapter Rangers instead. They’ll work diligently to ensure the charging cable for your phone is always in reach, and once they’re set to the task you can rest assured knowing your cords will remain tangle free. A set of two AC Adapter Rangers are available from iida for about $22 (1,880 YEN) and it looks like they even come with a colorful children’s book highlighting their past heroics.

[CES 2009] Cocoon Bags Feature ‘The Grid’ Elastic Organization System

Cocoon Innovations was one of the hundreds of companies to email me a pre-CES press release about their new products being unveiled at the show this year. And while the images they sent of the company’s line of cases, briefcases and laptop bags showed off their unique designs on the outside, it really wasn’t enough to pique my curiosity. Thankfully though, I happened to stumble across the Cocoon Innovations booth on the last day of the show, and it turns out it’s what’s on the inside of their cases that truly makes them unique.

Instead of a bunch of random (and restrictive) pockets designed to only fit specific items like pens, cellphones or PDAs, the Cocoon bags feature the company’s ‘Grid’ system which is a proprietary web of elastic fabric designed to securely hold any object in almost any configuration. Basically, it’s the most flexible compact storage system I’ve ever seen.

And the elastic grid isn’t randomly thrown together either. It’s actually strategically designed to accommodate objects of all shapes and sizes while always maintaining sufficient tension so your electronics, cables and other gear doesn’t come loose while in transport. As someone who’s a bit (cough!) obsessed with being organized, I think it’s a brilliant idea, and I can’t wait to get my hands on one. And while they didn’t have any specific pricing info, the company is actually planning to target the Caselogic demographic (for lack of a better description) by keeping their cases extremely affordable.
