Selector Mug encourages your anti-social behaviors

Posted in Office Gadgets by Reuben Drake on October 14th, 2007

Selector Mug lets you specifiy how you want your drinkEarly in the morning for a lot of people is the time they like to talk the least. Of course right away in the morning if someone is going to fill your drink or you bring your own mug to the coffee shop you’re forced to announce out exactly what you’d like and how you’d like it, probably more than once. While this probably isn’t a problem for some, for the many that would just rather not have to make their order with a smile every morning we have the Selector Mug.

This mug has three metal selector rings around it that let you make the visible selection of exactly what you would like without saying a word. The top ring has the common selections of hot chocolate, coffee, tea or herb tea. The second ring you can choose from milk, no milk, lemon or cream and the third ring has a selection from zero to 3 sugars.

rCard business card shows custom text, photos and video

Posted in Office Gadgets by Darrin Olson on October 13th, 2007

rCard from CEO IQ hold digital information including text, images and video and is the size of a business cardThe rCard is about the size of a thick business card at 3.6″ wide, 2.04″ tall and 4.3mm thick, but does a lot more than any business card we’ve ever seen. Companies have used credit card-shaped CD’s or branded thumb drives with data on them in the past to promote products and distribute marketing media but the rCard takes it a step further; probably a couple steps further.

It’s actually a little media player with a 2″ wide display and two buttons beside it for easy, intuitive navigation. Data consisting of digital text, photos, slideshows and even video can be uploaded to show off just about anything you would like, and can be added or updated straight from your computer through a USB connection right on the card. The internal battery is also recharged through the same cable and gives up to 2 hours of continuous use. Information can even be stored and time-released to allow companies to distribute information that won’t display until a pre-determined date in the future. Companies can also have the case shipped with a custom branded design for colors and logo.

Stapleless Stapler

Posted in Office Gadgets by Reuben Drake on August 29th, 2007

Stapler that cuts and tucks a flap of the paper instead of using an actual stapleMost offices find it hard to go completely paperless, but with this stapler you can at least go stapleless, ridding yourself of the need to rip off the corner or remove the staple from your papers before throwing them in the handy blue paper-recycling trash can. Just think of the money you might save on staple removers alone?

The Staple Free Stapler quickly and efficiently cuts a little flap in up to 5 sheets of paper together, folding the flap over on itself and putting it in a little resulting pocket which in turn meets the intended need of hold the papers uniformly together. The stapleless stapler comes in colors of black, blue and clear (smoke), retailing for a measly $5.99.

USB desk lamp changes colors the faster you type

Posted in Lamps,Office Gadgets,USB by Reuben Drake on August 20th, 2007

USB desk lamp changes colors the faster your typeAlthough it makes me shudder every time, when I see this lamp I envision a multitude of these little things mounted on the walls of programmer cube farms so managers can make sure the keyboards are always going. Due to this I think this lamp is just a horrible invention. Of course, I’m sure it can be used for purposes of good as well, and with a little therapy I can probably get there.

PC EZ-Bake Oven fits in the 5.25 inch drive bay of a PCIf you’ve ever been working away at home on your computer and found yourself to jump up and exclaim “Oh, my muffins” and run to the kitchen; this is a good indicator that you will want to look further into the PC EZ-Bake Oven from ThinkGeek.

The nostalgic oven fits into the 5.25″ drive bay of your PC and bakes with a light bulb (extra bulb included) to make your own personal confections right at your desk. It comes with some packs of mixes and some open-source oven controlling software with recipes, but can also be used to heat up pop-tarts or any other flat snack you have in your office fridge. Our favorite “in-office” recipe from the devices collection has to be the “Non-Dairy Creamer Creme Brulee”.

Battery Powered Desktop Air Conditioner

Posted in Coolers,Office Gadgets by Reuben Drake on August 10th, 2007

Battery powered Desktop Air conditionerThis 10.5-inch-tall device is made for those that feel the office temperature is just a little too warm for comfort. The desktop Air Conditioner works quietly and runs off of 2 D batteries or a 3V DC power adapter (that you must provide yourself).

The cooling mechanism is a little less high-tech than you might initially think and really comes down to the equivalent of placing some ice in front of a desk fan. Although the Desktop air conditioner has a condensation catch tray it has no mechanical condenser. The company packages a water bottle along with the cooling gadget that you are to fill with water and freeze. Once frozen you can place your cold water bottle in the air conditioner which passes air over it and onto you.

Personally I think you might get better results by just sitting on your frozen …

Casio egg-shaped USB label printerBrando has an interesting looking USB powered label printer which is kinda’ cool in itself, but they had to take it a step further and make the device egg-shaped.

You can print in any TrueType font from your computer as the device uses a thermal printer head to create the your custom labels.

Mr. P Tape Dispenser

Posted in Office Gadgets by Reuben Drake on July 26th, 2007

Mr. P tape dispenser dispenses tape from his mouthThe Mr. P tape dispenser has got to be the strangest and most interesting tape dispenser we’ve seen at the Brick. Your own personal unidirectional bonding strip dispenses from his mouth like a long tongue and tears off on his serrated toes.

In all honestly the dispenser stresses me out a little bit because Mr. P has been holding that sit-up crunch for a long time and his abs have to be close to giving out. When the tape runs out Mr. P’s head will split so you can refill it with another roll. The Mr. P tape dispensers go for $25 each.

Wenger Swiss Business Tool

Posted in Office Gadgets,Wenger by Reuben Drake on July 10th, 2007

Wenger Swiss Business ToolMost office settings may frown on bringing a Swiss Army knife into work, even if it does have a lot of handy tools on it that you may use in the office about once every 30-40 days. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to go without a fine crafted Wenger tool at work though.

The company has recently come out with the Wenger Swiss Business Tool that combines a lot of the more common tools needed at your desk in a compact design with familiar levers you’re used to seeing from the Wenger Swiss Army tools. The pictured business tool here contains a flat-clinch stapler, hole punch, staple remover, high performance scissors, optical gauge, nail file, and a nail cleaner, but no knife.

Portable Paper Shredder

Posted in Office Gadgets,USB by Darrin Olson on June 5th, 2007

Portable paper shredder that runs off of batteries or USB powerHere’s a USB-powered gadget that looks fairly practical for those that work on the road. This portable paper shredder runs off of either 4 AA batteries or can be powered from the USB port of your computer making it a handy device for use visiting clients or in the hotel room.

Weighing only about 12 ounces this device works great to shred any documents or receipts with personal information on them instead of trying to tear them to bits only to end up taking the pieces with you when you go anyway. I’m guessing it can handle not much more than one sheet of paper at a time, and I don’t think you’ll be shredding any credit cards but USB power surely must be better than hamster power.
