Whether you like the Mini or not, you can't deny the coolness of the Mini Desk ($TBA). Made from original British Minis, the desk is hand-built to your specifications, with your choice of desk top, car color, rims, tires, and license plates. In addition, it features a stereo in the dash with speakers in the parcel shelf, and fully working headlamps, hazards, and spotlights — so you can send light signals across the office whenever you and your secretary are taking a "coffee break."
Most letter scales sport utilitarian looks, at best. Not so with the Droog Archimedes Letter Scale by Arnout Visser ($50). This elegant Pyrex glass instrument uses Archimedes principle to measure the weight of your letters, and although we are admittedly a very gadget-centric bunch, the thought of removing one more button-and-LCD interface from our routine seems incredibly tempting — especially when it looks as good as this.
Inspired by NASA's X-Plane Project, the Zelos ZX series aims to push boundaries, just like the experimental aircraft. The ZX-8 Limited Edition has Swiss Automatic 7750 movement and even features a titanium dial made from an actual SR-71 Blackbird, the fastest jet in the world. The titanium is cut from an SR-71 engine, and the original finish was left intact, including all marks, scratches, and leftover paint, making each dial unique.

Pencil sharpeners are common tools for the cubicle, but hardly any of them look as much fun as this. The Walking Robot Pencil Sharpener ($6) lets you do double duty while sharpening — when you stick a standard hexagon pencil in and turn, you sharpen your pencil and charge the little guy's power core, giving him the energy he needs to start walking around your desk. You can also use the included key to charge the robot if you don't have a pencil handy.
