We’ve seen some great gadgets and equipment for designers. So many cool stuff, that we could actually assemble infinite perfect office spaces! Every week we’ll assemble a perfect office, and we’d like you to help us. What equipment would the perfect office have?
Not only gadgets and equipment, but also furniture, sound system, gaming stuff (for lunch time!). A designer is totally allowed to dream with the perfect office, and that’s what we’re gonna do here! Also, tell us your suggestions, or even better, you may tell us via twitter, using #abdz_ofc so we can check it. Alright? I hope you guys enjoy this brief selection. Cheers! 😉

If the last few years have been marked by the release of ever more advanced games for iOS and Android, then perhaps 2012 will be the year that the controls catch up to the games. The Drone Controller is a good start. This sleek, open-source controller will link up with your iOS, Android, or PC device via Bluetooth, and will offer dual analog joysticks, a digital G-pad, six face buttons, two shoulder buttons, a rechargeable battery, and an open source SDK for developers to take advantage of the advanced controls.

After years of searching, we’ve finally found the monitoring camera we’ve been waiting for. Dropcam is an amazingly simple Wi-Fi video cam that lets you keep tabs on your home, business, or family from literally anywhere. Its dead-simple setup took us no more than two minutes for each camera — we were watching live footage in the time it would take us to even open another camera’s packaging. You can watch your camera(s) live in your web browser or in the Dropcam app for iPhone or Android. Dropcam, which uses your Wi-Fi network to stream the video, has just the right amount of features without weighing you down with learning a bunch of useless settings — 720p HD video recording, automatic night vision, and support for multiple cameras.

Sony E Series 14P laptops
They may not be the thinnest or most powerful machines Sony’s ever introduced, but the new trio hopes to catch a few hearts here and there. A follow-up to those flashy VAIOs we saw a while back, these E Series models are each packing a 14-inch, 1366 x 768 display, an Intel Core i3 2550M CPU with 4GB of RAM and your choice of AMD Radeon HD 7670M or Intel HD Graphics 3000 — all while promising up to seven hours of battery life. Run-of-the-mill specs aside, Sony’s Gesture Control feature will allow you to swipe between pages and adjust bits like music playback — though, at the moment it only works with Windows Media Player, IE9, PowerPoint and PowerDVD. The company’s yet to reveal the 14P’s price tag, but in the meantime you can decide which color best suits you by checking out the gallery below. (at Engadget)
