Who Would Have Thought A Fallen AT-AT Makes For A Cool Tape Dispenser?

Who would have thought the Empire’s AT-AT could be so cool as a desk tidy? We never knew AT-AT’s wide and varied applications – even when it has fallen, it turned out to be a super dope tape dispenser too. The Star Wars AT-AT Tape Dispenser is not articulated, though. It is made of resin and serve as a beautiful desk sculpture of sort, as well as a grim reminder that this imposing walker had a very deadly achilles’ heel, which incidentally is at its heel/lower limbs section.

Look. Prada Is Selling Paperclip Now And It Costs $185 A Pop

What is it with the fashion industry that designers have to draw inspiration from everyday, and often cheap, items? Perhaps, we are seeing a design apocalypse where ideas are running thin? Whatever it is, we have a feeling it will not stop and the latest to fall into this cheap-turn-opulent design fad is this giant-ass paperclip from Prada and arguably the most expensive paperclip in the world. There’s no official record for it, but seriously, at $185 a pop, it got to be the priciest paperclip ever. However, it is not quite the paperclip you have imagined. Continue reading Look.

Zyp-Zyp: Tape Dispenser Reimagined Into One That You Will Be Proud To Use

Tape dispenser is perhaps one of most underrated inventions in modern history and I believe many have taken it for granted, since it usually comes free as a companion accessory with your adhesive tape purchase. In other words, the dispenser is something we hardly give a second look, but to be honest, it is not exactly the prettiest sight. However, pretty or not, it is useful, though it will forever be relegated to inside the drawers and not exposed on a desktop. Having said that, if you think that the clear plastic contraption is a threat to your stylish image, well, the good news is, Zyp-Zyp Stylish Tape Dispenser is here to save the day.

You Won’t Believe How Many Tools The Tactful Pen and Tool Packs

A pen is a pen. It lets you write stuff and occasionally, if the situation calls for it, stabbing a walking dead in the eye. Then again, it can never write again with the zombie’s goo all over. Not with the Tactful (Tactical) Pen & Tool by JP-Tac, though. The Tactful Pen is crafted from 6041 aircraft-grade aluminum and boasts Fisher Space Pen refill, which don’t need to sacrifice when a zombie comes limping at you; there’s a tungsten steel glass breaker for the job, which rightfully, is designed for breaking glass, but it will gladly take an eye off a zombie if the needs arise.

TAKUMI PURE+ is a Pen, But it Also Wants to be Your Complete Stationery Set

If one) you find stationery still has a place in this touchscreen-heavy society and two) somehow think stationery are ‘overly messy’, then TAKUMI PURE+ might be the answer you have been looking for. From the Taiwan-based Tronnovate Design Laboratory who brought you the original TAKUMI pen, the TAKUMI PURE+ is not merely an ‘upgraded version’ of the original as one might expect.

Ystudio Wants You to Feel the Joy of Writing Again with These Pure Copper and Brass Writing Instruments

There are really nothing much to write about writing instruments unless they are carved out of gold, embellished with pen load of gems, and they command an astronomical price. The Ystudio Copper and Brass Writing Instruments you see here is not cast of precious metal, neither are they loaded with rare stones. While we can’t say they are cheap, they are certainly not in the ridiculous price range. So what are they? They are just some ridiculously good looking pens and pencil that wants you to feel the joy of old school writing again. There are five flavors to choose from: two variety of rollerball pen, a ballpoint pen, a mechanical pencil and a sketching pen.

Batman Arrives on the Cover of Moleskine Notebook, But He Won’t Stick Around for Long

Come to think of it, we have yet to see any modern Batman taking down notes, but that don’t really matter, because as a Dark Knight fan (that’s if you are one), chances are you may take note and if you do, you might be interested in the Batman Limited Edition Notebook by Moleskine. Like other collaborations or limited editions, what you will get is Cape Crusader gracing the notebook cover and on the inside, you will find the usual pages for you to unleash your creativity in either writing or sketches. There are a total of five designs to choose from, including one that features original Frank Miller designs on its cover (arguably the best, we think) and is available exclusively at Moleskine Stores. Each notebook also gets an illustrated Gotham cityscape printed on the endpaper as well as themed stickers, which you can find in the back pocket.

This Brushed Aluminum Pen Is Also a Stylus and a 700 mAh Portable Battery

Well, you need to write in ink at some point. You also need a stylus at some point too and there is little doubt that we always in need for battery juice. So then why not grab a Power Pen? As the product name implies, it is a pen, but what it didn’t say is, it is also a stylus and packed inside its unassuming writing instrument form is a 700 mAh battery. At a swivel of the tip, you can quickly switch between a stylus and a ballpoint pen, and twisting the mid-section off, you will find a tip, a choice of Lightning and microUSB, that would let the 700 mAh juice flow to your device of choice. And on the other end, is a USB connector for recharging the internal battery, either through any powered USB port or any AC wall outlet. Granted that 700 mAh is barely enough for most of today’s smartphones, it should provide you that much needed jolt of power when you needed most.

Spark Notebook is a Proof That Taking Down Notes Don’t Need to be Digital

Despite the proliferation of digital media and the convenience of tablets and phablets, we felt that the good’ol physical writing is the best way to jot down ideas and we’re pretty sure at least 2,500 folks on this planet are on the same page with us. How we know? By judging by the popularity of Spark Notebook on Kickstarter, that’s how. It has 13 days to go, but it is already over 600 percent funded, garnering over 2,500 backers, which pretty much says about the popularity and importance of traditional medium. It is important not to confused Spark Notebook with laptops that some like to call notebooks. Having said that, it is also why we never advocate the use of the word ‘notebook’ to describe mobile computers. So for the love of God, stop calling laptops ‘notebooks’ because they are not and because notebook is very much alive and kicking, and so please do the world a favor by not adding confusion to this already complex world.

Bondic is Not a Glue, it is Liquid Plastic That Hardens with UV Light

The use of super glue has some correlation to stress. Why? Because we are always racing against time to align the broken pieces before the glue hardens, which usually occurs in a matter of seconds and on top of that, we run the risk of getting our fingers stuck together (or worst, glued to the object itself) in the process. But those issues are non existence with Bondic Liquid Plastic Welder, because this little syringe-like guy here is not a glue (even the website URL tells you that). Touted as the world’s first liquid plastic that cures only when exposed to UV light, it uses the same principle behind heat-free 3D pen like CreoPop. This means you will have all the time in the world to align whatever needed to be mend before bonding them together.
