Nothing says you’re geeky like a desk covered with the latest and coolest gadgets to distract you from doing real work.
Desktop gadgets have come a long way from electric pencil sharpeners and funny mousepads.
With stuff like this to play with, it’s a wonder anything ever gets done.
10. Multi-function USB
All-in-one office equipment saves money … all-in-one desktop gadgets save sanity. This 4-in-1 USB gadget will warm you coffee, light up your desk, clean up the mess from your powdered donut and give you a USB port to spare.
If you’re a geek, you probably don’t have a green thumb, so this USB greenhouse does almost all of the work for you. When plugged into a PC, it provides light, a moist environment and a reminder to water your plants.
8. Cell phone comfort
The cell phone is a pretty geeky gadget to begin with, so it should have a suitable resting place on your desk. A cell phone chair keeps it comfy, prevents scratches and helps you remember where you left your phone.
7. Green shredder
Green geeks will love this eco-friendly human-powered paper shredder. As easy to use as scissors, it also provides great exercise to keep your texting fingers in shape.
6. Letter opener
Snail mail is so 14th century, yet your non-geeky friends still send it. Give those antiquated envelopes the treatment they deserve with a stainless steel Samurai Letter Opener. Don’t forget to yell!
5. Car office
If your office is your car, your desk is the passenger seat. The Autobahn Desk turns it into a geeky workspace with a nonskid surface, storage compartments, a place for hanging files and even an optional power inverter to run laptops, printers and scanners. Just remember to keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road!
4. Desk-gym combo
While technically a desk-side gadget, the Walkstation treadmill desk qualifies as a gadget for the geeky fitness buff with no time to hit the gym. It’s specifically designed for an office environment with quiet operation and a solid foundation so your workstation doesn’t shake while you’re pounding the rubber.
3. Rocket launcher
All work and no play makes Jack a dull geek. A desktop USB-powered rocket launcher will fix that. It rotates 360 degrees, adjusts up-or-down 45 degrees and fires soft rockets over 20 feet. Office wars will never be the same.
2. Cool clock
It’s a digital world but the analog look is still classier. This Clock Dock turns your iPhone into an analog desktop clock, complete with a sleep timer and snooze function. Best of all, it hides the phone, causing plenty of double-takes from clock watchers.
1. Ultimate geek desk
The ultimate geeky desktop gadget is an actual geeky desk with an electric motor that raises it from a sitting to standing position in less than 20 seconds. Standing at your desk is supposed to make you more efficient, unless you spend your time showing this gadget off to your geeky co-workers.
