Tree USB

Tree USB
Organic and stylish, these Wooden USB sticks are so original, from Dutch designers Guido Ooms and Karin van Lieshout.

What a great contrast to all of the metal that typically comes along with computer gear.

Rule Bender

Bend Ruler
Rulers are one of those fundamental “tools” that you learn how to use when you’re like 3 years old. But regardless of your age or how long you’ve been using rulers, unless you’re being intentional about it, it can be pretty easy for the ruler to slip while you’re doing something like drawing a straight line against it.

The ArchRuler, by Tomoya Yoshida, is the perfect solution!

The curve in the ruler actually forces you to press down firmly, which inherently makes you put down enough pressure to keep the ruler from sliding. Subtle but genius!

Invisible Shelving

Invisible Shelving

Amaze your friends and family with Invisible Shelving by Sticklebook!

The invisible shelving system uses a series of comb-like hangers to give the appearance that your books are just magically connected to the wall! It seems it really only works well for paperback books but nonetheless is quite useful!

It is available at Shop Until for around $32.

Doggie and Kitty Staple Free Staplers

Doggie and Kitty Staple Free Staplers

Whether you are 5 or 50, these staple-free-staplers are just snazzy. Sure they’re a bit on the “kiddy” side, but until they come out with something super manly you’ll just have to make do with a pastel purple plastic dog on your desk. UPDATE: James kindly pointed out that there is indeed a manly version available.

These little “staplers” actually don’t use a single staple at all to hold your papers together. They cut a small flap and notch in your paper which keeps them together without you having to worry about accidently getting tiny piece of metal jabbed into your finger. No, that’s never happened to me.

ThinkGeek has these little gadgets in their store for only $7.99 a pop.
