Darkside Pac Man stapler

Posted in Office Gadgets by Conner Flynn on July 13th, 2009

Darkside Pac Man staplerCheck out this Pac-Man stapler from the folks at Panik Design, who call it “Stap Man.” Traditionally Pac-Man is yellow, so we can only assume that this is some Pac-Man from a darkside universe. Hey, between the name and the lack of yellow, they’ve avoided any copyright infringement.

It will cost you $26 and it’s hard to imagine that you’ll be able to resist making wakka-wakka sounds as you staple. It also comes in white. Lame. It looks pretty hungry, so staple away.

Posted in Office Gadgets by Conner Flynn on April 5th, 2009

FanSee: A fan that displays the digital temperatureThe FanSee is a nice innovation on the standard desk fan. Thanks to LEDs built right into the fan blades, the FanSee gives you the current temperature while the blades are spinning. That’s right! Feel the oppressive heat, turn on the fan, and let it tell you what you already know. That it’s damn hot. That’s why you turned the fan on.

So, it’s a device that states the obvious. The temperature readout on the 9 inch diameter fan blades is large enough so that the whole room can see it. If you absolutely need this in your life, it can be had for $39.99.

Visomate tells your boss when you’ve been sleeping

Posted in Office Gadgets by Conner Flynn on September 25th, 2008

Visomate tells your boss when you’ve been sleepingSo you get into work in the morning and you immediately head for your spot under the desk, where you hope to pull a George Costanza and get some sleep. It’s worked so far. Suckers never check in on you. Little do you know, your boss had Visomate installed. Not good at all.

The device connects via USB and will detect when your posture is bad at your desk by keeping an eye on your eye level. If your posture slouches too much an alarm goes off, which you can silence, but you can’t stop the flashing lights. But come on, we all know that George Costanza can find a way to beat this machine. What does a guy need to do to get some shuteye at work?

Black and Decker Studio Shredders get styleEverything has to look stylish now, even the old shredder.

Tinkerbell works here: Fairy Office Lights
What is it about shiny things that draws people like a moth to the flame? I have no idea. But I do know that if you buy these Fairy Office Lights for your co-worker and string them around his cubicle when he’s not looking, fun insues. He will have to endure Tinkerbell jokes and all sorts of things that imply that he’s light in the loafers. Before you know it, someone brings a fairy wand into it. Pure fun at others expense.

On the other hand if you’re a woman or a genuine fairy decorating your laptop with tiny blue stars no one is going to say much. The string is 36” long and is $12.95.

80-inch Mitsubishi video wall cube oversees world domination

Posted in Office Gadgets by Nino Marchetti on March 18th, 2008

wall-cube.jpgI don’t know about you, but here at the SlipperyBrick “command and control center” we like our video wall cubes for monitoring world affairs. We are therefore quite ready to lay down some serious change for the new VS-80PH40U from Mitsubishi.

Mitsubishi says the VS-80PH40U is designed for “large command and control centers,” which makes us wonder how well it would fit in around our one-room shack out in the sticks. You get out of this massive video cube 80-inches of viewing pleasure via 1400 x 1050 resolution and a “proprietary, high-powered projection engine to provide 190 cd/m2 of brightness.”

Personal microwave under 1 cubic foot

Posted in Kitchen,Office Gadgets by Darrin Olson on January 10th, 2008

Iwavecube personal microwave is less than a cubic footThis little Iwavecube personal microwave is pretty self-explanatory. It’s measures just 10.5″x12″x10″ so it doesn’t take up a lot of room, but you aren’t going to be putting a big microwaveable TV dinner in there either. Have one of these at your desk and you avoid trips to the break room, keeping up your introvert profile and avoiding awkward conversations while your waiting for your stuff to heat.

Unfortunately, unlike the USB Mini Fridge, USB power just doesn’t cut it for running the Iwavecube and it will require a standard outlet. And if your office is like ours and frowns on plugging in personal appliances at your desk, I can think of a number of other handy places for it like my TV room, home office, wet bar, in my car, etc.

The LED Christmas tree has LED blinking, colored lights on it which are powered by a 9-volt battery.

iSharpener USB powered pencil sharpener is flashy

Posted in Office Gadgets,USB by Reuben Drake on October 19th, 2007

iSharpener USB pencil sharpener sharpens your pencil and displays flashy LED lightsAs far as USB gadgets go the iSharpener USB pencil sharpener could be considered one of the more practical ones. It actually has a practical use although I can’t remember the last time that I actually wrote anything with a pencil. The device of course is powered by your computers USB connection but if you’re all your ports happen to be occupied at the time your lead breaks it can be backed up by 4 AA batteries.

The iSharpener seems simple enough and personally I think it should have been called the iSharpen, but they did add a nice little “spin” to the device. Instead of just a boring old grinding noise while watching wooden shavings fall into the plastic bin, the makers added 3 colorful LED lights inside the light up when you’re sharpening! How’s that for adding excitement to your day?
