Nerdy Details for Your Office


Each and every office needs a bit of refreshment from time to time. You don’t want to turn it into a theme park, but a nerdy thing here and there is always welcome. Apart from making our offices a better and brighter place, nerdy details and items can be quite useful. So, if you are looking for something to add to your office, here are some things to consider.

App Coasters

For all iPhone and app lovers, there are app coasters that can decorate your office desk. These are made of medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and topped with a vinyl finish and a coat of rubber on the bottom side. They are perfect for keeping the glass circles off the desk and they will provide a fun touch to your desk.

Photoshop Magnets

If you have a fridge or a mini fridge in your office, then you should decorate it. You can put up the ordinary travelling magnets, but if you want something geekier you can get the Photoshop magnets. Hold the images and important notes with these and always be reminded how to edit photos, or simply enjoy the looks of your nerdy magnets.

Floppy Disk Sticky Notes

Sticky notes are some of the most useful office supplies there are. They are easy to use and they are always there to remind us of our daily tasks, or important phone numbers and e-mail addresses. However, if you don’t want to stick to the basic yellow and orange patterns, you can find Sticky Notes in the shape of a floppy disk. Such a design certainly is nerdy, but it still has the function and usefulness of sticky notes. Also, it is a great way to pay tribute to the good old days when things were simpler.

A Newton’s Cradle

Every office needs a Newton’s cradle not only because of its simple and sleek look but because of its impact on us. There are various sizes and shapes of this nerdy gadget and each one of them can help your mind relax and focus better on your work. Don’t hesitate to get this gadget for your desk; even if it’s an office cliché it still looks great.

A Tetris Lamp

If you believe your office is too dark and dull, then it could use a nice lamp. However, if you are a big fan of games, then you shouldn’t opt for just any lamp. Rather, find one of the Tetris lamps that you can rearrange and move around as much as you want and still provide enough lighting for your work. The colors and unusual style of the lamp will certainly provide a fun spirit and warmer atmosphere besides giving you enough illumination.

A Bubble Wrap Calendar

Every office needs a calendar to keep you on track with your daily obligations and important dates. Ordinary calendars with images of nature, puppies and kittens are just not fun anymore. Now, there is a calendar made out of bubble wrap that you can easily pop. So, pop the date and get the weirdly satisfying and rewarding feeling about popping the day that has finally past.

Wall Decals

Another interesting way to spice things up in your office is by placing some of the vinyl decals on your blank wall. However, don’t choose just any decals; rather give your inner child something to enjoy – Space Invaders decals. Don’t let the blankness of the office walls distract and depress you. Use your imagination and find nerdy decals in any shape, size and colors, and you will be surprised how much difference a few Space Invaders can provide and help you focus on your work better.

A Foot Hammock

Even though you are sitting down during your office hours, your feet can get tired. Since the blood flow is disrupted by sitting, your feet might feel tingly or even swollen. That is why you should opt for setting up a fun foot hammock under your table and stretch your legs from time to time. This is a perfect gadget for everyone who wants to relax without having to stop working.

With these simple yet interesting gadgets your office will never be the same. It will become more fun and relaxing which will help you focus better and increase your productivity.
