We all have those certain items that we use on a daily basis which we truly cannot live without. What if we were to tell you, however, that we have found more compact versions of those items that are the epitome of good design and usability? Warning: the following isn’t your grandfather’s tech.

RX100 Camera| Sony

Sony has long been revered for their quality, yet affordable, tech. Recently, Sony came out with the RX100 which is a super powerful camera in a tiny, compact body. A similar model, the S100, has the tiny build but not the powerful features that real photo-junkies would appreciate. The RX100, however, has a larger and faster lens making for a better overall camera.

Flash Drive | Kingston

At the minuscule size – similar to that of the Macbook Pro 2010 charging port – this flash-drive is super compact and yet, super powerful. It boasts a 16GB memory, which for a drive this small, is pretty much unbelievable. If you’re tight on space, this is the flash-drive for you.

Pivot Power Mini | Quirky

Purchasing this item should really be a no-brainer for anyone. This power-extender maximizes the number of devices you can charge at once four-fold and folds up nicely when not in use. Also, at $13, the price is really right.

Compact Key Holder | KeySmart

Compact Key Holder
An unusual but super useful product, the KeySmart Compact Key Holder is such a great solution for the “jingly-key-syndrome.” If you want to stop sounding like a janitor/landlord everywhere you go, you should probably look into this.

Tear-and-Share USB | Yanko Design

We’re unsure about whether or not this design has reached production but if it has, we highly recommend you get your hands on it. The concept is simple – a small, flat pack of USB drives. It’s even smaller than a pack of gum! Similar to gum, you simply tear-off one of the drives, mark it with the contents, and hand it to a colleague, a friend, or even a foe – we won’t judge. The kicker for us, though, is that it’s made out of 100% post-consumer molded paper pulp, so it’s good for the environment too!
