Penball Erasers Let You Have an Impromptu Game of Foosball

Penball, Soccer Player Erasers1 .

Erasers don’t get any funner than this. You probably don’t need an eraser at this point in time, but you might still want to get them anyway because they’re more than just erasers. You can think of them as attachments that turn plain old pencils into (partial) rods that you can use to play an impromptu foosball match.

It’s nothing like the real thing, obviously, but it provides some fun where there used to be none.

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.

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.

Rite in the Rain

 

Got clammy hands? Take a lot of notes outdoors? Then these Rite as Rain notebooks are the ones that you need. They’re water-proof, which means that it’s resistant to rain and humidity.

The earliest version of the Rite as Rain notebook was developed by Jerry Darling back in the 1920s. It’s evolved over the years and they’re now available in a variety of bindings, sizes, and sheet types.

ALERT Staples: Every Office Needs These

Alert Staples

Everything’s all good until you run out of staples. What’s worse is when your office is truly out of staples because the guy in charge of supplies screwed things up. This happened last week at our office, and let me just say that the hour it took to buy staples was as tense as things can get in an otherwise boring office.

I’m sure it’s happened to you before: you’re stapling forms and documents, working up a good rhythm, until you hear that empty click that means your stapler is out of staples. Working to make sure that this doesn’t happen without your awareness is ALERT Staples. It’s a concept by Wei-Ling Hsu, Yu-Ren Lai, and Cyuan-Yi You, where your typical staple wires are inked with a red band at the edge.

Heavy Tape Dispenser Makes One-Handed Use Possible

heavy-tape-dispenser

Tape dispensers are usually a two-handed operatio: one hand holds the dispenser while the other pulls the tape out. But the Ultimate Heavy Weight Tape Dispenser doesn’t mess around with any of that. Weighing at a hefty, but still reasonable 2.2lbs, the dispenser will stay firmly planted on your desk. It’s made from aluminum with a cast iron core, and its industrial looks will blend nicely in almost any decor. It can also do double duty as a murder weapon, though we really don’t recommend that usage.

$50.
