10 Upcycled Gadgets for Your Home and Office
« on: 11. April 2012., 09:40:41 »

Get your dusty old tech gear out of the closet and "upcycle" it! Last week we posted about old tech gear being "upcycled" into fashion accessories and here are some ideas for home accessories, including an old Mac computer converted into an iPad dock, and a Nintendo controller turned into a pen holder. Would you ever "upcycle" your old gear into a home accessory?



10 Upcycled Gadgets for Your Home and Office


1. Nintendo Controller Desk Mate

This cute creation upcycles an old Nintendo 64 controller into a handy desk mate. Plus, the old D-pad has been converted into a USB extension.

2. Camera Phone Lamp

Camera-phone -- get it? Dog Tag Designs creates desk lamps by combining old gadgets into quirky refabs.

It is atlest called Desk mate ;)

It seams like a nice designed box. Tha function is more and less the same. You can put pen in one part and paper clip in a other palce. The nice part seams to bee that if you connect it to a usb port you also get a usb port. ;) ??? :D
