Be Smarter – Use Smartpens

The most extravagant (yet highly useful) item on our list is the smartpen. Taking notes during class — even with the most rapid-fire professor — just got a whole lot easier. The smartpen may look like your average pen (it’s about the size of a Sharpie), but it also packs in a voice recorder and up to 2 GB of storage. So far so good, but here’s the really cool part: not only does the the pen remember everything you’ve written in digital form , it also keeps track of whatever was being said while you were scribbling a detail — just tap a word to hear all of what your professor was saying at that particular moment.

Handy and Funny – The Best Gadgets for the Office

The monitor is positioned to low, the coffee is cold, there is cable clutter everywhere – the office can be full of annoying trifles. Here, cool, handy and funny office gadgets can be the solution to brighten up your workday.

The Perfect View with Monitor Arms

How dangerous is it to sit in front of the computer screen? According to a Microsoft study 86% of all respondents who work more than three hours a day on the PC suffer from pain. Where desk and chair are not sufficient, adjustable monitor arms provide comfort and adaptability. The height adjustment and flexibility bring the monitor in the ideal position thus allowing optimal posture. Moreover, dual-monitor arms expand the viewing area and make different applications available parallely. The two monitors not just facilitate the work but also increase the productivity by 35 percent as the Fraunhofer Institute discovered.

No Clutter and Full Power with Desktop Chargers

With all of the USB-powered devices we have to charge throughout the day, a dedicated USB charging station can be a real life saver. Using a multiple USB desktop charger can reduce clutter on your table and makes it easier to keep multiple devices charged at the same time. When choosing a desktop charger it’s important to consider the number of USB outputs it offers, the rating of each, and the total output of the device. New desktop chargers use IC technology that lets them recognize the attached device and automatically deliver the correct amount of power.

Creativity and the Perfect Overview with Interactive Whiteboards

Interactive whiteboards can revolutionize business communication. An interactive whiteboard is a whiteboard that lets you project PC screen images onto it. That way it lets you operate the PC right from the board surface. Information and images from the whiteboard can be sent, saved, printed out and expanded on. This contributes to smooth, easy-to-understand presentations and is ideal for meetings in which websites are displayed, images are shown and additional information is written while meeting.

Jolly Times with Funny Gimmicks

Of course, not all the time at the office is serious and full of working. There should always be some time for fun. Therefore, there are not only handy, but lots of funny and nerdy office gadgets. Those gadgets also make the working space more personal and entertaining. E.g., USB beverage warmer and coolers keep your favorite beverage hot or cold. The USB device plugs right into your computer for power so it is completely portable. Also, stamps can get quite funny. “Like”, “Dislike” or “WTF?” stamps show your thoughts on documents and projects, when you can’t find the confidence to say what you’re really thinking or when words just aren’t enough.
