Chivote 2Face Double Faced Leather BackPacks
Made by Chivote, an European start-up built around manufacturing high quality leather gear, the 2Face Backpack sports an innovative double-sided design.

ALSO CHECK the Piccadilly Leather Knapsak From Brooks and the Stylish Armadillo Leather Backpack.

Remember those cool jackets you simply turn inside-out and you get a totally different style to wear? Pretty much the same idea here – simply turn the backpack around and you get a different style gear carrier. The 2Face Backpack is available in three leather tones (Black, Nubuck and Redrum), sports a laptop dedicated compartment, a tablet internal pocket, three external pockets for smaller gear such as smartphone, wallets, keys and one main compartment for other stuff you might need to carry around. The back straps are side-attached in the lower part of the backpack and, on the upper part, a metallic hook allows easy switching between wearing sides. Perfect for daily commute.

The Chivote 2Face Backpack is available at Kickstarter. You can encourage the project and secure a one at an early bird price of $259 (will retail at around $310).

Heinz Beanzawave - The Worlds Smallest USB Powered Microwave Oven
The Heinz Beanzawave is believed to be the world’s smallest portable USB microwaves ever built!
Ok … don’t run to your wallet to grab you credit card yet! The story behind the Heinz Beanzawave is that the iconic food company wanted to make a micro heater for their Heinz Snap Pot portions and, before releasing it to the masses, they decided to first wait for the public’s impressions …

ALSO CHECK our Cool Office Coffee Mugs collection

Well, the project was initially presented back in 2009, so I guess people did not appreciate the idea as much as Heinz expected as I don’t see the Beanzawave at the electronics shop around the corner! But there’s still hope … regardless it’s already 5 years old, the project is still cool and I really hope they release it to the market one day!

Tablio Or How To Work Comfortably On Your Laptop Away From Yor Desk
Using a laptop anywhere else than on your desk can be a challenging task. Especially if you prefer using a mouse to the laptop’s integrated trackpad!|
Most times you can’t find the right position to be both effective and comfortable, while respecting basic ergonomics rules. More than that, working with your laptop on your lap (or on a pillow as I often see around) can seriously damage your computer the air-flow required to cool down your machine can be obstructed by the improvised “desk”.

ALSO READ ABOUT: Slate MobileAirDesk – The Bamboo Lap Desk To Help You Work In Comfort and Lounge-Wood – The Innovative Laptop Support That Allows You To Get Things Done From The Comfort Of Your La-z-Boy

Tablio is a bamboo laptop desk designed to address this issue and allow you to work/play away from a desk for multiple hours. The lap desk fits various laptop sizes ranging from 11″ to 15″ and features two retractable pads (one on each side) for your mouse and another gadget you need to keep an eye on. The main part, where your laptop sits, is well-ventilated by specially designed air channels k allowing an efficient cooling by air circulation.

Other than these, I need to mention that the Tablio works for both left and right handed users and, given it’s slick format form, lightweight bamboo construction and retractable side pads, the lap desk is very portable and you can easily carry it with you in your laptop bag.

The Tablio is in project mode on Kickstarter. Reserve your for an early bird price of $87 US (estimated delivery August 2014).

Mercedes Viano Business Luxury Van
The Mercedes-Benz Viano it’s a multi-purpose vehicle made by the German manufacturer. Normally, the Viano is just like any other van you see out there on the street. But that’s until it got on the handy hands of the guys over at Klassen

ALSO READ: Daimler Mercedes-Benz Zetros 2733 Luxury Hunting And Expedition Vehicle

The basic Viano model was “stretched” (read extended) to allow more room to the mobile office. The luxurious interior can easily serve as office for 4 persons, is fully loaded with high quality leather and high tech gadgets controlled by an iOs app (yeap … not only this van will set you back a considerable amount of Benjamins, but you also have to be an iPhone or iPad fan to fully take advantage of all it’s features)! No price is available on the official website (don’t worry, if you really want one you can drop them a contact form and I am sure they’ll get back to you quicker than you can hit the SEND button!!!) but rumor has it it’s about 1 million per piece!

Check the video below for a virtual tour of one of the fanciest road offices ever built!
