061311DarkTech.jpgWe're familiar with the look and feel of certain peripherals; but once in a while, some designers decide to re-write the code, presenting designs that challenge our expectations of what something should look like...

Sandisk Imagemate
This is a simple multi-card reader but the design element that makes it unique, is the fact that is placed vertical and angled a little bit. We love that it will take less space on a desk and that it has speeds of 34 Mbps. Supports cards of every size, from multimedia cardmobile to xD picture card type H. You can even detach it from its magnetic stand.

Belkin N52TE
Yes, this is a mouse that looks straight from the movie set of Transformers. This is a top gaming mouse with cool blue glowing lights. We appreciate that you are able to unfold it to reveal 15 customized keys and an eight-way non-slip thumb pad. It has a removable joystick that is programable to different games.

Vertu V Collection Bluetooth Headset
The only way to match Vertu's over engineered phones, was to create an out of this world headset to match. This is a premium, hands free earpiece that looks more like a F22 jet than something that belongs attached to your ear. It has 6 hours of talk time. We love the proprietary sound enhancement system that blocks noise out of your conversation and that the case looks like an ultra modern pen.

Jawbone Jambox
Proving not all Bluetooth speakers need to be yawn-inducing affairs, the Jawbone Jambox is striking for its angular design, alongside the warm sound it produces from such a small form factor. Two acoustic drivers and an ultra-small dome are housed inside the stainless steel construction and industrial-weight molded rubber casing, with all four sides wrapped with a single wrapped grill surface to reduce vibration and give the speaker a very solid, seamless form.
