      David- actually, most of the cool gadgets listed are real products and not just designer concepts. In fact, according to the designer’s website, the Pacman stapler should be available in a store at Azrieli in Tel Aviv.

    I love the stapler! The world time desk clock is pretty cool, too. Oh, well, I’ll take them all 🙂

    Your timing is great for upcoming holiday shopping…

    Wow!! now thats really kewl..but I am scared..if I keep all those things at my desk…i won’t find it the next day morning!!

    Eric- contact the designer, maybe he can make you a custom version.

    Melissa- I hadn’t thought about the holiday shopping aspect at all. This was an idea I’d had a while ago, and the group writing project made it a good time to get it done.

    Shripriya- Yep, that could happen 🙂
