In Pictures: 8 productivity gadgets you didn't know you needed

Looking to work better, faster and stronger? Consider the road less traveled and look at these eight devices.

Belkin WeMo Insight Switch The Belkin WeMo Insight Switch ($59.99) won't actually help you work faster, but it may save your from turning around to check if you've turned off the iron or space heater. Like the other devices in the WeMo family, Insight Switch lets you use your iOS or Android device to remotely toggle connected electronics on or off. More importantly, the Insight Switch adds the capability to monitor the energy usage and offer an estimated cost for your energy bill. You can then see, for example, if you kids have exceeded their daily TV limit, or if it's really worth turning on the heater again.

LIFEBOOK UH574

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
