The colorful Wire Ball cable tidy

wire-ball.jpg

We're always on the look out for handy new ways to keep our desks and electronic equipment tidy. In fact we probably spend more time looking for these kinds of practical solutions than we do working!

So, we were happy to find the Wire Ball on Swiss Miss this morning, a colorful little sphere designed to hold up to 5 feet of cable, now that's an impressive cable tidy!

Cool down this summer with the USB Seat Cooler

usb-seatcooler.jpg

It's worrying how many modern day offices don't have adequate air conditioning facilities, so in summer a long and tiring working day becomes even more unbearable and uncomfortable than usual.

The USB Seat Cooler from Thanko has been designed to improve the situation a little by cooling your seat and lower body with the help of lots of tiny fans. You simply plug the seat cooler into your computer to power it up, or even use a USB charging adapter and hook it up to your car's cigarette lighter.

We have to admit, it's a bit strange that the seat cooler is full of tiny fans - would that really be the most comfortable experience? - but, we can imagine it'd be a god-send for hot, stuffy and sauna-like offices during the summer months.

Papyrus shows the glory days of historical sites

papyrus-device2.jpg

The Papyrus is a device which allows users to view historial sites and architecture with what Yanko Design describes as 'restored vision', so what you may see as ruins will actually be shown in all of its glory on the screen!

It's a very useful tool for tours and visits to sites of interest and would be a great way to engage those that may not usually be tantalized by castles, crypts and colosseums.

Create perfect sunsets with Grand Marnier photo app

app-example.jpg

Ever since Instagram and Hipstamatic became so popular, it seems impossible for anyone to take a regular photo that looks like it's from 2011. We need our images to seem at least a few decades old, with plenty of distressing, a little blurring, a fancy border and possibly some vignetting thrown in for good measure.

After applying a filter to every one of my photos for the past few months, I've decided it's time to branch out a little and experiment with apps that aren't just about grungy effects and dream-like blurring.

BinderPad slots your tablet into your notebook

binder-pad.jpg

iPad devices are becoming more and more common place in the classroom, with students of all levels investing in tablets or even being given them by their school or college.

Although most tablets are slim and can be slipped into handbags or rucksacks, this often leads to them getting a little damaged or scratched. Tablet case designers at ZooGue have come up with a simple yet effective solution with the BinderPad, which allows students (or anyone who carries around a lot of paperwork) to store their iPad in a case that fits neatly within a regular ringbinder.

The case has been specially made to take up as little room as possible, so it won't weigh down your folders or look too bulky. We can imagine the BinderPad becoming a staple among college students and it may even prompt others into investing in an iPad when they can see how it would (quite literally) fit into their current routine.

The BinderPad is available on ZooGue for $30, which is pretty inexpensive for a good quality and multi-functional iPad case.

Colorful Kapok iPhone 4 case

kapok-case.jpg

The Kapok case for the iPhone 4 doesn't just keep your shiny device safe and scratch-free, it's also been designed so you can quickly and easily attach it to a tripod, which allows you to really make the most of the phone's great camera. The case also has two integrated buttons that allow you to use your phone as a regular point and shoot, as well as a mini USB input port for quickly transferring photos.

The Kapok is available in yellow, green, cream, black and aqua from Canopyco for $69.95, which although may seem a little pricey for a regular case, is more than worth it for one that transforms your phone into a camera too.

Hyper Ping Pong game doesn't need a screen or a ball

The Hyper Ping Pong game is pretty unique in that you don't need a screen, ball or even an opponent to be able to play it. In fact all you really need is a specially designed paddle with a built-in motion sensor and speaker. You simply 'play' table tennis by listening to the fake ping pong ball sounds and then swing the paddle when the ball supposedly bounces on the table in front of you, which is what earns you points.

It's an interesting idea and the game itself is super practical as it can be played anywhere and doesn't require the player to have any other kind of equipment at the ready. However, it might get a little boring without any kind of visual stimulation and it's certainly not the most sociable game either!

Hyper Ping Pong is available in Japan this October for around $25.
