If your desk is buried in paper—from receipts to invoices to bills and medical forms, look into this slim receipt scanner. It plugs into your computer, and each scan produces a digital record of your receipt, making it a snap to organize your bills and expenses come tax time. You can even scan your contacts’ business cards and import them to Outlook, Plaxo or vCard. Weighing less than 1 pound, it measures 10.8 inches long, 1.6 inches high by 1.3 inches deep. Powered by one USB cord, it’s a high-tech, yet practical desk accessory.

It’s complete with a high pixel density and brilliant color display and will show your pictures in either landscape or portrait settings. You can import photos either directly from your memory card or with a USB connection to your PC. To keep the frame powered, it uses an AC adaptor or a rechargeable battery. Built in memory will hold 50 pictures to be shown in 800x480 resolution.

Top Dog Raku Pottery Sculpture

Spice up your workspace with this funky sculpture featuring a dog in a power suit. Whether you’re the top dog in your office or you’re looking to project a note of whimsy on your desk, this is just the thing to make your co-workers take notice. A shiny hue of colors including burnt orange, copper and maroon make this 14-inch high by 5.5-inch wide sculpture a true standout. Weighing 3.5 pounds and was created by the classic raku firing technique—you can impress onlookers by announcing that fact, even if you don’t know what it means.

Jacobs Piston Lamp

Want to show your sophistication while still holding on to your guyness? Those Family Guy and Star Wars toys aren’t going to cut it anymore. Elevate your desk image with this lamp fashioned from a piston. MotoArt specializes in turning industrial parts into functional, yet funky pieces of practical art. An engine piston of a 1940s Jacobs radial becomes the base of this LED adjustable gooseneck lamp that will shine for 100,000 hours before needing replacement. Also check out the Jacobs piston desk clock on the site to complete your engine theme.

Perpetual Motion Machine Ball Bearing Desk Game

Need to glance away from your work for a while? This aluminum crafted time waster will mesmerize you with its perpetual motion. The Archimedes screw controls the ball bearings in an uphill motion, which then delivers them back to the bottom to continue in an everlasting cycle. Feel free to add or remove ball bearings to the 3.5-inch long, 3-inch wide and 2.25-inch high device to add variety. Who needs a desktop pool table when you have this—which can waste just as much time, but this makes you look way more modern.
