Isn’t it great when you have cool office gadgets to help you relieve stress at work or even improving your work? In order to maintain office productivity and your competitive edge, small businesses should invest in the latest technology and equipment. Spice your office up with some of these incredibly useful gadgets.
The good news is that you can get many of the latest office gadgets without breaking the bank. Technology is moving in fast forward these days and the gadgets that are produced always bring something new and interesting.
From cool computer accessories to cubicle toys, there is a new range of office must-haves for you to explore. You will find the best products in this list of coolest office gadgets that we have for you. So, here goes the list…
1. Moleskine smart writing set notebook with smart pen (PTSETA)
Just because we live in a digital age doesn’t mean the old school traditions of work and office productivity are forgotten. The Moleskine Smart Writing Set combines the best of both worlds. A regular pen is replaced with pen+ and includes a mini camera at the tip. Um, how cool is that feature?
Also, while the paper tablet looks similar to the popular Moleskine brand, it allows you to connect to your iOS and Android devices to digitize all of your notes when you’re finished. All you have to do is download the app for your device and you’re connected.
A lot of bad or mediocre reviews, but this has worked splendidly. Packaging is beautiful, setup was easy, pen and app sync seamlessly. I’ve used it extensively for several weeks and not a single issue.
Pen writes well, Moleskine notebook is as advertised. I wish the notebook had the page mark like other Moleskine’s, but that’s it. And notes integrate well with Evernote. Read Full Review…
2. Meeting Owl 360 Degree Video Conference Camera with Automatic Speaker Focus
No other conferencing camera puts everyone “in the room.” Take a transformational approach to your remote and distributed meetings. The Meeting Owl gives a more inclusive video conferencing experience. That means increased efficiency, no miscommunication, and a team that feels closer together.
The Meeting Owl video conferencing camera dynamically captures 360° video and superior audio for a near face-to-face experience. It combines video and audio into one device. Plug in the power and USB, load up your favorite video conferencing platform and start your meeting.
I work for a company with about 26K employees, where infrastructure is pretty locked down but we realize that “digital is coming” and that we have to be more flexible.
My review is really for the corporate IT department trying to figure out what the heck this thing is, is it a security risk, and where do we go from here. First, we wanted to know that this can be used in fully standalone mode– USB only– as a webcam. Read Full Review…
3. AmazonBasics 8-Sheet Cross-Cut Paper and Credit Card Shredder
Thoroughly shred multi-page documents (up to eight sheets at a time) with this AmazonBasics cross-cut shredder. The machine quickly turns paper into strips measuring 3/16 by 1-27/32 inches.
Use the shredder to destroy ATM receipts, credit-card bills, mortgage statements, pay stubs, insurance packets, and other old or unwanted info. It will even shred credit cards (one at a time), and there’s no need to remove staples or small paper clips.
Review: Amazon Customer
I am not someone who uses a paper shredder every day, but when I do, I really use it hard. This shredder was a surprisingly good value and quieter than I expected.
That said, my last one overheated and needed to be replaced. This shredder has a 3 minute constant run time and a nice overheat indicator light that should help prevent me from making the same mistake. Read Full Review…
4. Star Wars R2 D2 Desktop Vacuum
Get ready to love this! Calling all Star Wars fans that love (and aren’t ashamed) to express their loyalty at work. If you’ve never heard of the R2D2 vacuum, you’re in for a treat. It gets rid of small pieces of paper and those pesky crumbs that have piled up on your desk over time.
It can also wipe away any dust that has accumulated around your working station. And it’s really easy to use. Just plug it into the USB port of your computer and wipe away. Just be prepared to start having a little too much fun with it.
Was a cute toy for a while. But it lost pretty much all of its function as a vacuum after a couple months, even with very rare usage.
I cleaned it out as well as the filter and there’s just barely any suction. Not enough to actually pick up crumbs, which I wanted to use it, to begin with. Read Full Review…
5. Wireless Charging Pad, ZealSound Charger Station for Multiple 3 Devices
Eliminate the stray radiation concerns and overheating associated with some wireless chargers. Full CE, FCC, and RoHS certification, along with advanced temperature control, ensure a totally safe charge.
Compatible with iPhone X, iPhone 8, Samsung Galaxy and more. One-step charging – forget about fumbling with phone cases. Just place your device on PowerPort Wireless and let the power flow. Align your device in the center for high-speed charging.
It charges multiple devices which are good but the phone needs to be placed right at the exact spot for it to be charged.
Little here and there and it won’t charge. Charging Pad is covered with some black flimsy thick paper kinda material and can scratch. It is not plastic or glass. The device is lightweight. Read Full Review…
6. WellBe Stress Balancing Bracelet
As much as anyone loves their job, the potential for great amounts of stress is not only high but almost expected in plenty of professions. The Wellbe Stress Balancing Bracelet is rising up the list of best office gadgets.
It not only evaluates and keeps track of how much you’re stressing but analyzes your daily behavior to inform you on what is actually causing your stress levels to peak. This allows you to not just manage the stress you already have, but give you ways to take preventative measures to make sure you don’t have to experience it at all.
Review: Amazon Customer
So far, so good! It’s all set up and working giving me lots of feedback now. I am enjoying the app and looking forward to the changes it’s going to help me make in 2018. Not sure how long the strap is going to hold up. That’s the only concern I have. Read Full Review…

Review: Sean Howell
The review above has valid points. However, in my two-month experience with this machine, the beauty is in what it does for you in the morning.
You get to start the fresh grind and brew process while you’re still in bed. You hear the beans grinding, smell the aroma, and your coffee is fresh and ready to go when you get downstairs. It’s not a fully automatic machine, you can find those on Amazon for about $1200. Read Full Review…
8. Goplus Treadmill Desk Standing Walking Treadmill Electric Machine
This cool gadget cures multiple issues that we often face at work. It helps you work on your fitness and prevents you from getting too complacent sitting at a desk all day.
Whether you’re trying to get over the Mondays are get moving to kick off your happy Friday, the standing desk and treadmill is a pretty genius gadget for your workspace. One of the downsides is that it could increase your energy and electric bill and it can get a little pricey depending on the brand you’re looking to purchase. But if your employer gives you the okay, then go for it.
Review: Tanya Wadley
I love it! I’m a bargain shopper and this is a dream. I paid $310 including shipping. I bought a 3-year square trade warranty for $6.
This is very quiet. It was pretty easy to put together. My 10 year old helped me. I thought we could do it in 10 minutes, but it took us about 30 minutes. It would have taken half as long, but the bolt holes on one side of the table didn’t line up quite right. Read Full Review…
9. Sky Hiker Bluetooth keyboard, Dual Channel Multi-device Universal Bluetooth Rechargeable Keyboard
It’s safe to say that while offices provide computers and laptops, we still often use tablets and smartphones to get work done on the go. After all, they can prove to be the most convenient at any given moment. The multi-device keyboard gadget can connect to both your phone and our tablet to write notes, make plans, and answer emails as efficiently as you want.
If your keyboard is connected to multiple devices at once, it will let you choose which device you want to type with. The multi-device keyboard also features shortcuts to save time and increase productivity. It works with Windows, Mac, Chrome, Android, and iOS devices.
This is super handy. The dual function is great. I am able to input to both my Surface and Note 8 with the flick of a switch. The battery life is really long (I haven’t killed the battery yet).
The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is occasionally a key stick and repeats a character many times and if I hit the spacebar anywhere but dead center it won’t space. It was super easy to connect to both of my devices and it auto connects when I turn it on. Read Full Review…
10. Digital Photo Frame
Great Viewing Experience: 1024 x 768 HD Resolution (16:9) with TFT LED Screen for photo playback.
USB&SD/SDHC/MMC Content Playback: Plug a USB or SD/SDHC/MMC card on the frame’s back to instantly display all your digital photos. The frame can be controlled with the buttons on the back as well as with an intuitive remote control that comes along with the frame.
Auto-playback: Browse all files or folders in the memory device, Auto-slideshow when inserting Memory Card. Support viewing pictures in thumbnail mode and Slideshow Pictures.
Clock & Calendar Function: Built-in clock& calendar with slideshow window.
Review: Wang Cheung
At product and display pictures easily, plug and play are convenient for anyone to use. 8-inch size is okay, I more like to stand it on our cupboard, it also can be mounted on the wall, but you need buy hooks by yourself. It looks really like a picture frame.
Wooden material, brown color, compatible with my USB drive and SD card nicely, I like it. More surprised to me is this digital frame can browse all files or folders in the memory device, Auto-slideshow when inserting Memory Card. It also supports viewing pictures in thumbnail mode. Read Full Review…
11. Livescribe 2GB Echo Smartpen
Take the stress out of tests and meetings with an Echo smartpen from Livescribe. Record everything you hear, say and write, while linking your audio recordings to your notes.
Quickly replay audio from your Livescribe paper, a computer, or a mobile device – all with a simple tap on your handwritten notes. It’s never been easier to take notes and stay organized.
Review: Sarah K.
The concept is awesome. The application is alright. Sound quality is okay. Overall, I use this every day for lectures. All of my lectures get recorded, but I very rarely upload and listen to content back.
I believe this is helpful to studiers and I think it helped improve the way I study. Among other changes, this helped raise my GPA to a 4.0 this semester. I would recommend this concept, but I would also look to see if there are superior products out there. Read Full Review…
12. SENDOW Mini Desk Air Conditioner
3-in-1 Multifunction Air Cooler – With refrigeration, humidification and air purification functions in one device, this cooling fan works both as a humidifier to moisten the air, and an air purifier to reduce allergens, dust, and smoke. Moreover, an air cooler with 7 colors LED mood lighting and 3-speed modes offers you a 4.6-foot cooling area.
Energy Saving – Noise-free during using process, and as a simple circular fan, this mini USB air conditioner also has a low level of energy consumption, costing much cheaper than running a Freon air conditioner in hot summer.
Review: Neal Alan Greene
I love this. It works perfectly. It blows cool, not cold air, but that is what I want. The only design flaw is the lights on the controls.
It could have been designed without these lights, or so they could be turned off. I use this in my bedroom and the lights light up the room, but I just put a piece of aluminum foil over the controls. Read Full Review…
13. Erasable Memo Pad with 4 Port USB
This combines two helpful office gadgets in one clever and compact gadget. This Erasable Memo Pad requires no batteries as it’s powered by USB. It comes with a USB cable and a stylus pen. Just plug it into a PC or Mac and you’ll have a handy memo pad to hand and an extra 4 USB ports to connect to as well!
This electronic memo pad doesn’t use up paper or create waste, as you can reuse the same surface again and again. Instead of filling your bin with used sticky notes or pieces of paper, you can just write your notes with the magnetic stylus pen and erase when you’re done. I dare say your kids will like doodling on it whilst you’re on the computer too!
Review: Jayne Hesketh
I bought 5 of these for stocking fillers for Christmas 2018. I like to shop early. I have had a look at one and it is ivory rather than white.
I thought that they were somehow linked to the computer for usage but they are not. The extra USB sockets will be useful and it saves on paper. A novel little gadget. Read Full Review…
14. Digital Alarm Clock, LittlejianWooden Desk Alarm Clock, Fashion LED Bed Alarm Clock
CE certification wood fashion multi-function LED digital bed/desk alarm clock that will listen to you, accompanying you every day of happiness.
In the power save mode, the screen turns off after 15s, taps or sounds greater than 60dB with near distance will wake up the smart led alarm clock. You can press “down” when it displays “–sd” and it will light up all day.
Adjust the brightness of the LED (Low, Medium, Bright) on different occasions, ensuring that you can easily read the screen during the day and not be distracted at night.
The clock itself is small and takes up little space on my table. It has a “snooze” button but I consider snooze buttons superfluous. There is no radio but for the price, you can not find any clock this durable. Read Full Review…
15. Samsung DeX Pad Desktop
Samsung DeX enables you to turn your Galaxy smartphone into a true desktop computing experience*. By docking your smartphone into the DeX Pad, your phone will launch a special DeX mode on the connected external monitor and applications can be opened in multiple separate windows.
Connect a mouse or keyboard for added productivity or even use your phone screen as a touchpad. *DeX is compatible with Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note8 and later models of the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series
Review: Steve Cominski
Struggling to find ways to use it meaningfully, but it might be interesting while traveling if you only had access to your phone. Will update this review as I find ways to use it that are actually fun/productive/clever. Read Full Review…
16. Lumo Lift: The First Wearable Posture Coach
Posture is an important but often forgotten part of our daily lives. With plenty going on in our hectic and busy schedules, it can be a real challenge to practice the mindfulness needed to identify and correct poor posture.
With Lumo Lift, get gentle vibrational reminders for your posture whenever you slouch. Track your posture hours, steps taken, distance travelled and calories burned through the companion iOS, Android or Windows Desktop Lumo Lift app.
I have been wearing my Lumo Lift for about a month to help improve my posture. The device itself has helped me considerably. A co-worker has commented that my posture has been very good lately. My 6-year-old has taken notice and will randomly yell out “posture” to remind the family to sit up tall.
The first day I wore my Lumo Lift, it kept buzzing me every 2 minutes as I sat at my desk. I quickly noticed that I kept looking down because my monitors were too low. I raised them up and the posture reminders decreased. Read Full Review…
17. Scanmarker Air Pen Scanner – OCR Digital Highlighter and Reader
Create summaries faster than ever before; just slide your handheld scanning pen across a line of printed text and watch it appear instantly on the screen.
Super accurate and fast multilingual OCR text scanner ideal for students and professionals in the library, office or on the go. Use your pen scanner to scan editable text directly into any computer application e.g. Microsoft Word or our intuitive mobile apps
Just finished highlighting the key points from a whole chapter in the book I’m reading. Overall, I am very happy with this product – will make note taking much easier. It was also very easy to share it once I was done with the document (I uploaded it to my Dropbox directly from the app).
I am using it with my Samsung Galaxy 6(Android), and it was working within 5 min of trying to get it set up. Very easy to use. I tried setting it up with an older Android tablet, but the app was not compatible (something to be aware of if you have an older Android!). Read Full Review…
18. Ember Temperature Control Ceramic Mug
Could you ever see yourself paying $80 for a coffee mug? You might be able to now. The Ember Temperature Control Ceramic Mug prevents those moments when you’re waiting for your coffee to cool off at the beginning of your work day and discover that it tastes more like iced tea. It keeps the temperature just how you like it (you can literally set it to your favorite temperature) and even comes with a saucer that doubles as a charging device. Keep in mind this one is not dishwasher safe. So, show it a little extra love and hand wash it. (Sidebar: It was voted one of Time magazine’s 25 best inventions of 2017.)
Review: Lauren Banzhaf
I am that person that either drink my coffee way too hot and burns my tongue or tries to wait until it cools down but then it’s too cold and sad. Ember is perfect for me as it tells me when it’s ok to drink so I don’t lose taste buds but keeps my drink warm for hours so it’s still warm and cozy.
It’s super easy to clean and doesn’t stain easily, but I did have the other issue other people have with de-lamination at the base even with using my fingertips to clean. I had no issues getting a replacement mug and I still love my Ember, but you may want to keep your proof of purchase just to be safe. Read Full Review…
