, designers of sleek and functional products for the office, home, dorm room or traveler, has some interesting gift ideas for the upcoming Father’s Day holiday. The company makes some of the “cooler” accessory items I’ve seen. I’ve been a fan of their CableDrops for a while now. Their products remind me of the same design philosophy that Apple seems to live by. Simple yet functional.
Refresh ($89.95) is a personal or shared charging station for three or more devices. Compact in size and compatible with most of the new devices hitting the market today, it can charge two iPod/iPhones simultaneously while also charging a Blackberry and a bluetooth headset for instance. In fact, using the two iPod connectors and two of your own iPod cords, you could even charge four iPod/iPhones at the same time. Perfect for the whole family!
The Sanctuary ($129.95) is a beautiful, simple solution to a real everyday problem. A place to put the multitude of personal items we all carry around so they are easily located again when later needed and, always fully charged.
The simple and compact design conceals a universal charger compatible with over 1500 electronic devices from most major brands and a USB port allowing hundreds more electronic devices to be charged using just The Sanctuary. Users can from now on charge their cell phone, PDA, Blackberry, iPod, MP3 player, and bluetooth headset simultaneously in one location.
CableDrop ($9.95) – Use these almost anywhere you wish to have cables temporarily held yet easily removeable or extended. CableDrop gently grasps your power and peripheral cords so they do not fall off your desk every time you unplug your laptop.
StudioDesk ($599.95 ) A clutter free working environment while still connected to all your peripherals. All peripherals and excess cables are hidden just under the sliding desktop surface. The storage compartment is therefore conveniently accessed from above. An elongated slot across the width of the desktop allows the necessary peripheral & power cables to enter/exit at any point, thereby keeping the desktop clear of clutter.
CoolFeet – ($12.95) In search of the simplest possible design solution to this dilemma, they designed Cool Feet as compact and removable supports that temporarily fix to the bottom of your laptop with suction cups. Elegant, simple to attach and detach, they raise the laptop just enough to allow a constant cooling airflow.
CableBox ($29.95) Under or on the desk, next to the computer, or behind the TV, loose tangled cables are always untidy dust traps. CableBox is the solution to solve these issues. Simply place your power strips or surge protector inside CableBox. No need to unplug anything first. Then stow away the surplus cable lengths, close the lid and done. Designed with cable outlets either side of the box, CableBox will fit almost every size power strip with extra space for the cords, adapters, etc.
All of these stylish and extremely functional items are available directly from the.
