Canon's X Mark Mouse Slim - it's a wireless mouse, calculator and keypad!

White looks great with an apple keyboard, if you want to keep things...white.

By way of Designboom, Canon is now taking pre-orders for its X Mark Mouse Slim, a three-in-one business tool for your computer. The wireless mouse, calculator/keypad is a great example of streamlined innovation. I love the simplicity and efficiency of this. It makes perfect sense, right?

Walnut Keyboard Tray

Neatly hold your keyboard and keypad.

I think I should have been Canadian. Something about their aesthetics and zest for clean lines and design is so appealing. Every time I see an atrocious strip mall, I think about my trip to Vancouver where the simplest storefronts are stylish without being too trendy. And did I mention how clean everything is? No graffiti in sight. It’s amazing. Well, leave it up to the Canucks to create a clean tray to house your Apple wireless keyboard and keypad for your desk. The Combine Collective represents an ensemble of local Canadian artists who fuse art and technology for modern convenience. If you’re looking for a way to warm up your desk with natural wood accents, this is the perfect balance to the cold austere (yet beautiful) design of Mac products. Below the placement of the keyboard and pad is smaller vestibules for hiding unwanted clutter like pens and paperclips and whatever else you can easily loose in the mess. The tray can be ordered for right or left-handers. The purchase of this tray is a sure way to add some polish to your mundane office desk. Get yours for $99 CAD.

In case you need to hide something.

Project This – Samsung’s Pico Projector

Samsung's Pico Projector is the perfect mobile solution for on-the-go business.

Great size, great design.

Consultants and freelancers will appreciate this one. Samsung has released a portable projector that basically fits in the size of your hand. Thanks to LED technology, the SP-HO3 Pico Projector measures 2.75″x1.5″x2.75″, weighs less than most cell phones, and has a 1 GB internal memory that provides a projected screen of 80 inches (30 ANSI lumens strength). The cool factor alone is reason to have this for your office. The practicality of it makes it a must-have. Imagine being able to transfer a file from your iPhone and let the projector run the show itself. Better yet, have this around to project what you have on your computer up on the wall for impromptu meetings. However you justify it, the $300 price tag is just what you need for work and play. In fact, I think it’s a great way to display and share your pictures from the recent 4th of July weekend. Check it out at Samsung‘s web site.
