Most offices are fairly standard places, with little in the way of gadgets apart from everyday computers (maybe even an iMac), printer/scanner/photocopiers, and maybe the odd laptop. Not exactly the most exciting of places.
However, we’re here to open your eyes. There is a whole world of office gadgets out there that you never even knew you needed…or existed! So here’s our countdown of the top seven office gadgets we’ve found on the web.
Rotating Socket Extension Lead
In an office it’s likely you’ll have several plugs connected to one extension lead, but then there’s always that problem of not being able to fit them all in. This rotating socket is the answer, allowing each socket to turn individually, thus allowing multiple plugs to fit in at the same time.
‘Like’ Facebook-Inspired Stamp
While Facebook might be banned in the office, there is still one way you can incorporate it into your day to day tasks. The Facebook-style ‘Like’ stamp is a great way to lighten the mood and give your approval to a colleague’s proposal.
It’s Thursday afternoon, it’s 3pm and your eyes are slowly getting tired, waiting for the end of the day. What better way to wake you up than a nice cold can of Coke? But you don’t have to go to the vending machine – you can use your very own USB fridge right by your desk.
Clip-On Desk Cup Holder
Do you ever get to the office in the morning after purchasing a nice cup of coffee and not have anywhere to put it because of the papers covering your desk? This cup holder could be the answer. It clips onto the side of your desk and will hold your drink with ease, ensuring you don’t spill it in the process.
If you’re a fan of Star Wars and you’re a fan of…pens, then this is for you. With a pen on one side and a lightsaber on the other, you can pretend you have ‘The Force’ when sat at your desk.
Floppy Disk Post-Its
Do you miss the days where everything was stored on floppy disks, rather than on USB sticks or in the cloud? Well these post-it notes are the perfect answer. Looking exactly like the real-life designs, they are a great way to bring an 80s and 90s vibe to the office.
USB Mug Warmer
We’ve all been there, made a cup of tea and then got dragged into a meeting so it goes cold. You won’t have to worry about that anymore with this USB mug warmer, which is powered from your PC and will keep your mug warm as long as you need.
