Each year, tech companies announce and release hundreds of products designed to make your work life easier and more efficient, and 2014 was no different. From headphones that track your heartbeat and attempt to manipulate your energy level through music, to an ingenious rubber desktop organizer that is sure to save you the headaches that come with lost cords, the 25 office gadgets on this list are those we spent all of last year talking about. Though there were certainly more than 25 exciting new products to find their way into our offices last year, those on this list were chosen and ranked based upon the following criteria:
Check out the Spire Health Tag. This small gadget sticks to the inside of your bra, shirt, pants, or pajamas. Once adhered to your clothing, you don’t have to do a thing. The tag will automatically sync with your phone and give you updates on your overall health including heart rate, sleep quality, breathing patterns, and stress levels.
PlugBug is a 10W USB wall charger that piggybacks onto your MacBook Power Adapter, creating a totally unique, all-in-one, dual charger for MacBook + iPad or iPhone. That means you can charge your MacBook + iPad or iPhone at the same time using one wall outlet. Remarkably simple and elegantly designed, this go anywhere power pack means one less charger to carry and one less wall outlet to find. PlugBug simplifies your life in a way you never imagined.
And I’ll wrap it up with this. Because between the giant racing exoskeleton and this showcasemobile from the luxury RV-outfitter — equipped with a hot tub, helipad automatic seat-lifting toilet (with 2 modes for…figure it out) — I declare that Furrion wins CES 2017.
A wall of lights that change color depending on the music streaming out of a nearby device sounds fun, right? That’s exactly what Nanoleaf has been doing for the past few years, and it’s about to get better in 2018. At CES, Nanoleaf announced new square light panels that are touch sensitive. Tap a panel to turn it on or off, change color, or adjust brightness. There’s also a new 12-sided remote that’s up for pre-order right now.
NEEO is a revolutionary smart system that lets you control all your devices from one remote and even knows who you are when you pick it up! Two parts, the brain and the remote, work in tandem to control everything from your sound system to your TV and lights. With the NEEO app you can also harness the power of “the brain” using your smartphone! See it in action —>
A big fat WIN of black ink is a great way to show your child that their fridge art has reached the next level of awesome. Acceptance letters mean that much more with a little extra WIN on them. Maybe use it as a highlighter to spruce up studying for that boring history class.
The Intuos Art pen is remarkably sensitive. With 1024 distinct pressure levels, it perfectly mirrors your brushstrokes and lines with natural feel and movement. On the tablet, use simple multi-touch gestures to zoom, scroll, or navigate through your artwork. Customizable ExpressKeys give you a shortcut to the functions you use most often, like changing tips or tools.

Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to outfitting their iPhone with a case, and still some people prefer no case at all. After all, the iPhone is such a beautiful device—shouldn’t a case accentuate that elegance? The Incipio cases for iPhone 6/6S and 6/6S Plus do just that—offering the right mix of protection, design and simplicity. Available in six different colors, the shell is made from a shock-absorbing polymer material that wraps around the device without consuming excessive space. Some versions offer translucent shells to further bring out the natural beauty of your iPhone.
“SIM-free” means your iPhone doesn’t ship with a carrier SIM card. The SIM-free iPhone sold on apple.com and at the Apple Store is unlocked. That means you’re free to use a SIM card from any carrier that provides service for iPhone.
While the UV Sense is designed to be worn on your nail, L’Oréal will also be releasing accessories so that users can wear it in different ways, too. The beauty company worked with designer and entrepreneur Yves Béhar on the product, in part why it resembles nail art rather than a piece of wearable technology.
Doxie Q is the automatic document scanner reinvented for true mobility to let you scan anywhere — no computer required — with a rechargeable battery, collapsible automatic document feeder, included memory, integrated Wi-Fi, and included Mac, PC, and iOS apps. Doxie’s small size makes it easy to tuck it in your bag or a drawer when you’re done scanning.
Actually, that brings up an interesting idea — imagine if Apple actually made an iCar? People would line up to buy one. It would drive itself. And it would completely die after two years, so you’d be forced to buy a new one. $15.99 – Etsy via Nerd Approved

High-tech wearables are nothing new for the business world, but in 2014, Intel introduced an interesting new set of earbuds that can help you stay both mentally and physically healthy throughout your day, including while at work.

When that inevitable slump occurs just after lunch, the earbuds will automatically play you a song especially chosen to pump you up, while a calming song will be offered after that frustrating meeting with your boss.
