Nethrone

Nethrone

When you're online and writing as much as we are, those lame ergonomic keyboards and wrist pads just don't cut it. And while we haven't decided if this futuristic workstation is the solution for us, there's no doubt that it's an awesome cure for all those aches that come from being a computer geek. Created by renowned designer Eran Baruhe, the Nethrone ($2500; available Jan. 30, 2006) is an oval-shaped structure that offers unrivaled electronic adjustment of nearly every part, including the height, angle and position of the keyboard, display, (massage) seat, headrest, and more. We're looking forward to checking it out at CES in Las Vegas next month.

  • Bin Bin Wastebasket

    We’ve all done it at one point or another — been writing up a letter or note, not liked it, and given it the heave-ho into the wastebasket. But what if you could make the wastebasket look more like its contents? That’s the idea behind John Brauer's Bin Bin Wastebasket ($60). Constructed of hard polyethylene, the white model is meant to look like its contents — unless you’ve been using it to dispose of coal, in which case we recommend using the black model, and a surgical mask — black lung can be a real bitch. [Thanks, Joubin!]

  • Moleskine Pocket Reporter Notebook

    We're not sure how we've went this long without mentioning it, but we live and die by our Moleskine notebooks. You can call us bandwagon-riding hipsters if you want, but these things are terrific. Our new favorite model is the Pocket Reporter Notebook ($11). It opens up like a journalist's notepad and features the classic black oilcloth-bound cover, durable thread-bound binding, and a handy elastic closure. And hell, if they were good enough for Hemingway and van Gogh, then they're surely good enough for us hacks.
