Network Necessities: 10 Pieces of Tech Every Office Needs

office design for productivityWhat do you think of when you picture an office? Stacks of computer paper in the corner? A box of paper clips? Maybe a picture of your family next to a paperweight?

Well, it’s time for you to drop all of that (well, okay, you can keep the family portrait) and start thinking about offices in a new light.

Just like everything else in the world, offices have changed – and rapidly so. New office technology has made it possible to chuck out the old and bring in some pretty fresh gear.

With that being said, we’ve put a nice list together for you to make that possible.

10 Pieces of Office Technology Every Workplace Should Have

Here’s a list of 10 really neat items you need to add to your office space. Why not buy one or more of them after you get rid of your paperweight collection at a garage sale?

Window-Mounted Solar Charger

We’re gonna go ahead and start off with something incredible here.

This charger is powered by the sun, making it super efficient and self-sustaining.

Just stick this awesome piece of equipment to the nearest window (yes, it stays out of the way of your desk) and voila! You now have instant and unlimited access to charge up your phone, tablet, or any small device.

AirBar

This wicked piece of technology lets you turn a regular laptop into an interactive touchscreen.

The setup is easy: simply attach the magnetic bar to the base of the laptop’s screen and plug into one of the USB ports, and you now have yourself a touchscreen laptop for a fraction of what the real deal costs.

Bose Noise-Canceling Headphones

More and more workplaces are becoming extremely chill with letting employees vibe to their own beats. If you plan on joining the club, make sure you do it right with a pair of noise-canceling headphones.

Bose is a company that makes really good audio products for a really good price. Invest in a good pair of headphones to listen to your music at the highest level possible without unwanted office noise.

Standing Desks

We’re sure you’ve heard of them before, but now it’s time you actually bought one.

Standing desks are great for keeping you up and active. They keep you from getting lethargic and help get the blood flowing, increasing your level of focus. This means getting fit and making progress.

Hey, while you’re at it, why not add in an under-the-desk treadmill?

AppKettle

As if you couldn’t do anything else with your smartphone, this happens.

The AppKettle is a kettle that, for all intents and purposes, does what any other kettle does. Except it’s not like any other kettle.

Using an app, you can control the temperature of your kettle and see when the water will be ready. If you’re away, you can also keep it simmering for up to 30 minutes.

Clearly, this is a revolution in the coffee world.

BrightLink Pro Interactive Displays

Office meetings just got so much more fun.

The BrightLink Pro interactive display allows everyone in the meeting to move past the simple raising of the hand and truly interact with the presentation.

The projector displays the presentation at hand, but using computers and smartphones, those in attendance can involve themselves directly with the display, adding precision and employee understanding.

Bamboo Folio

For those who are diehards about their pen and paper, you’re definitely in luck. The Bamboo folio is the result of classic meets modern – with some style to boot.

Using a stylus pen (yeah, the fancy stylus), you can write on the folio’s screen just like you would any regular piece of paper.

But here’s the cool part. Everything that you write on the folio can be instantly uploaded to a cloud, allowing you to access your files on any other device when you need them.

Go ahead, get pen happy.

Label Writers

If you work in a smaller business, you’re going to want to get a label writer.

Lable writers are super helpful for whenever you need to randomly mail off that package by 5 pm. Use them to print off shipping labels, warehouse labels, and barcodes.

If you’re feeling really fancy, you can even customize your own. Why not have a little fun?

Ross Gardam Polar Desk Lamp

We currently cannot think of any words that can truly describe the epicness of this product.

This polar desk lamp will tell other lamps to go home. It works based on the phases of the moon (epic, right?) as well as a rotatable mirrored shade that allows you to adjust the levels of light and shadow.

For all those late nights in the office, this is the only friend you’ll need.

Dynamic Glass Window

The dynamic glass window is like any other window…but better.

It installs like any other window, but it comes with remote interactive features. You can use this remote to adjust the tint of the window depending on the amount of heat and sunlight that enters your work area.

Add these around your office (or where the sun shines brightest) to get the optimal lighting you need to get the workday going – no distractions.
