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? Offered in black or white, the X Mark is a lightweight companion that should be a staple for your office. Check it out here. $60 USD [available in August 2011]
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.
Some of you may have noticed (and many of you did not realize) that I have been out of touch these past few months. Aside from increased responsibilities with my real job, holiday traveling, family matters and a new weekend home renovation in Palm Springs, I am a bit stretched at the moment. However, with the close of the year comes new resolutions to help us reflect, rejuvenate and re-energize ourselves for the next 12 months. It will definitely be a busy year and one that I hope to share with you. My goal is to be inspired with countless hours of online research (shopping) mixed with some personal inspirations from worka and life. Check back or sign up for the e-newsletter feed. I’d love to hear your thoughts and make for an actual exchange of ideas.
And just to tease…here’s a pic of the next post.
Your new journal.
Be safe celebrating and ringing in the new year. I’ll be back on Monday with new things to share.
