Most people have that one type of gadget that they adore the retro or older versions. For me it’s phones, I can’t resist a retro or even antique phone. I have been absolutely pining over the Crosley Black Candlestick Phone. If you prefer your retro gadgets to have a modern touch though, you ought to look over the Sixty DECT phone from Sagemcom. It’s a gadget that perfectly intwines modern and retro looks.
Whenever you’re really into what you’re doing, it seems like that’s the moment you forget about that hot cup of coffee that’s conveniently placed just a little too close to an elbow. Of course this always happens around sensitive material like important paperwork and electronics. If you were to pick up Spink it’ll keep your drinks from spilling when you happen to knock into them.
I realize that this picture looks like two ordinary people shaking hands, but what is actually going on is far more technical and far more complex.
This photo comes from my Source, who was at NTT’s Showroom at Tokyo and got a chance to try out the “t-room”. Yes, that is what they call it, and is actually is very similar to sitting down for tea.
Here is a brief explanation of what the t-room does. A person stands in this small circular room that is surrounded by person-sized video screens. They can see an image of the person they are talking to, who is in another t-room somewhere. This allows for some video conferencing that is exponentially better than FaceTime on the iPhone 4. You can watch the video after the jump to see what is up.
It seems like people are writing less and less, some prefer to even type up quick memos instead of jotting them down on a post-it note. For those that still prefer to write things down on normal paper, there’s a new writing utensil out there. Sharpie has come out with an interesting new pencil, that mimics pens by being liquid.
Finding the proper iPhone dock to really represent your iPhone can be tricky business. Especially if you’re a very particular person who prefers to keep their gadgets as unique as humanly possible. Thankfully there are enough hard working men and women out there that strive to make interesting accessories for all sorts of gadgets. One example of that is the iRetrophone-Steampunk iPhone Base.
As a professional blogger, I don’t really have an office per se. In fact, all I really need to do my job are three things: a laptop, an electrical outlet, and a stable Wi-Fi hotspot.
However, I used to work for “the man”, and there is one thing that I know about corporations: never have permanent office space. Perhaps you work in an office where there is this unnecessary shuffling of cubicles, and I’m sure you are having a hard time seeing the big picture.
I would suggest that you simply make your office spaces more portable with these portable offices. As you can see, all your office equipment such as chairs, desk, shelves, etc. can all be put on this one thing, and then moved with the simplicity of a wheelbarrow. After the jump is a picture of what it all looks like when it is placed.
Power strips never want to budge, they just stay stick straight. Well thankfully Quirky Products is offering a new solution. This one will be able to move and conform to any shape that pleases you. It’ll make stashing it into small spaces a whole lot easier than the straight strips. You can even just put it in a zig-zag shape for silly decorative reasons.
