An estimated 2. 3 million Apple Watches have been ordered so far (roughly 85 percent of those being the Apple Watch Sport, 15 percent the Apple Watch and one percent the pricey Apple Watch Edition).

Catalan designer Eugeni Quitllet has created a set of office items for Lexon. Dream Tools feature a transparent design that is meant to foster a dreamy and productive mindset in the workplace. The ethereal and vibrant collection comprises four office objects including a pen and holder, a desktop organizer, an adhesive tape dispenser, and an alarm clock. The Peter Pen is an aluminum ballpoint pen that hovers in its crystalline base in order to help inspire its owner. Quitllet’s Liquid Station is a desktop organizer for smartphones, pens and business cards that proposes a new typology for keeping desks tidy. Dream Time is an LCD digital alarm clock that endearingly embodies time with its easily located, protruding external buttons that enable intuitive setting. It features time, date, alarm and temperature functions, as well as a Snooze mode. These objects are microarchitectures, small crystalline, colorful and transparent landscapes to cast an eye upon, then dream, work and think more clearly. Above all, for objects like Dream Tools that are to be used, but that are also to be given, truly small gifts, bought to give pleasure to others.
Each of the three Pocket Operator models leaves little to the imagination, with components and circuit board left visible. The PO-12 drum machine, PO-14 bass synth, and PO-16 lead-synth all feature a 16-step sequencer, LCD screen, built-in speaker, alarm clock, and a line in and out. The synths also have a set of effects, including filters, bit-crusher, delay, and stutter. Teenage Engineering is launching the Pocket Operator line in collaboration with Swedish clothing label Cheap Monday, which is selling some related gear, including badges, t-shirts, and a case. The Pocket Operator will be available directly from Teenage Engineering's website as of January 22, at which time we can probably expect some product videos showing it in action.
