If ever there was a character that was meant to live on as a trash can, it's R2-D2. The Star Wars R2-D2 Trashcan ($150) is a two-foot tall, detailed replica of everyone's favorite droid. The can features a step as R2's middle leg that opens his head and gives access to the removable interior can inside. Made of durable vinyl, this R2 unit is ready for years of accepting your failed plans for world domination. [via]
It's about time that desks started matching the desktops that sit on top of them. The Milk Desk ($TBA) is the first desk we've seen that is as smartly designed as the computers we use. Its oversized 140 x 80cm top houses cable exits, a cable drawer, an integrated front file, and four modular square spaces that can be used as garbage bins, pencil holders, an iPod drawer with in-desk cable routing, and even as an aquarium. The desk also has an electronic base to raise or lower the desk depending on whether you choose to sit or stand. All-in-all, one of the most badass desks we've ever seen. [Thanks, Mark]
For some reason, using a pencil eraser just isn't as satisfying as hammering on your delete key. Now you can do both with the Delete Eraser ($9; July 10). The oversized eraser looks just like that favorite key on your computer, and will last for a long, long time. Plus, it will probably be incredibly fun to throw at incompetent co-workers during meetings.
