USB Battleship

Organize your cables with this USB Battleship Hub. Created by the design duo Giffin’ Termeer, the idea was that the “boat shape could be an ‘organizing image’ to visually manage the tangle”… it’s also weighted so that it won’t topple over.

Waterproof Notebook

Get ideas in the shower? Or in the rain? or while doing dishes? Behold the Waterproof Notebook, which is comprised of 80 sheets of waterproof paper and a graphite pencil.

Transformer Filepack

Well, looky here. This folder transforms into a carrying-box with just a few steps. So if you have just a short stack of papers, the file is perfect… and if your short stack becomes tall, make the file into the carrying box to accommodate. Pretty smart.

Stipee Bookmarks

How much do you like these bookmark sets? I might love them, I really might. Each bookmark has a re-usable glue like a sticky label, so they’ll last for a few months. When I was looking around for images to use for this post I found a whole bunch of other Stipee Bookmarks around $8.00 from Japanese Gift Market. My favorites are the Savanna and Forest, mostly because I like the landscapes, but there’s more than a handful of other ones to choose from (Numbers (color) could be fun to use too).

Well, it’s also produced at a wind-powered facility in the US, so that should be enough to impress.

Simply titled “Concrete Office Helpers”, this line of organizers are sure to add a bit of industrial-chic styling (and quite a bit of heft) to your desk.  The entire set currently costs $300, but individual pieces can also be purchased.

ID Blocker

Check out this handy stamp. It contains lots of tiny symbols that block out your address or other sensitive details in your mail. Might save you some time and/or trips to the paper shredder. Or, if you’re extremely paranoid, it’ll just place an additional security measure against those that are planning on piecing together your shredded mail.
