The Hottest Gadgets - The office can be a cold, hard, unfeeling, life-sucking place to spend your working days, but then again you don’t have to live in Dilbertsville. For all the stigma surrounding “the office,” you’re getting unique opportunities to interact with people and your environment in between filing TPS reports.
A lot of awesome ideas, lets run down a few of my favs (in case anyone wondering what a good gift for a full time cube work/part time blogger would be).
The Stealth Switch – Please don’t let this catch on. TheStealthSwitch.com just doesn’t have the same ring as TheAltTab.
Portable Sleeping Cube – I’ve been in the market for a comfortable, under desk/cube sleep option for years now. Best I’ve come up with so far is an accumulation of jackets to act as pillows and blankets.
Carpet Skates – Love it! Finally an office competition that is Olympic worthy. This would really give me motivation to stop by the supply room once in a while when I run out of shit, rather than just stealing it from the cubes around me.
Babble Voice – Easily the most useful item on the list. Would work wonders on my non stop babbling neighbor. Music and talk radio just don’t seem to cut it, a tool specifically designed for this purpose is needed in my case, not that she'd get the hint anyway.
Bright Blinds – HA! Seems like an idea designed in a corporate think tank. “Gee our workers are miserable in the fluorescent lighted cube with no windows in sight How about we add more fluorescent lights but just hide them behind a window blind? It’s a fire hazard and it will remind them of real windows so they can realize even more how much their office sucks!” Pure awesomness (and yes I'd welcome this gift despite my mocking tone).
