Designing Department : Gadgets on the Desks
In a past post, I wrote about PC peripherals in the Designing Department. 'PC peripherals'
This time, I will show you other useful, or maybe interesting items found around their desks.
At first glance it looks like an ordinary stylus pen, but...
It also doubles up as a ballpoint like this.
And on the top is a magnetic compass! (Although it does not look like you will ever use it...)
Apparently, this stylus pen is a complimentary gift from a certain company.
What is this star-shaped metal?
Turn it over and you will find it is a paper clip holder.
This takes up too much space for the purpose and cannot be said very useful. It is merely personal preference.
Next, items found on the desk of our veteran.
This is a paperweight-style desk loupe.
When you reach your mid-40s, it becomes hard to see small letters on drawings. Then, this becomes very useful. I would like to have one at home.
There was also a regular loupe with a light. This seems to be a free gift from a tool shop.
Finally, numeric keypads.
The numeric keypad on the right, which have been used for five years, has finished its job (it broke) and has been replaced by a new one on the left.
The new numeric keypad also has USB input. It will serve us well for another five years or so.
You must have useful or interesting stuff around your desk, too.
