Getting extra screen real estate is always a plus, no matter what your current monitor configuration is. AOC’s latest screen is a USB monitor, and it’s light enough to make carrying it around a possibility, which is good for mobile road warriors who need portable workstations.

The QR-Code Island is a collaborative project between Mat Barnes and Eddie Blake, and is actually a scale-model of an island that can be scanned by smartphones as a QR code when viewed from above. You’d imagine that something like this would pop up in Dubai, but at least for now, it’s only a model.
