Keeping your workspace in order is dull—but these fund cable tidies inject a little humor into proceedings, by turning your rat nest of wiring into a stack of fake barcodes.

The brainchild of Duncan Shotton, there's not a huge amount to say about these devilishly simple yet good-looking tidies. They're flat sheets of plastic designed to neatly wrap your headphone cables, USB cords or whatever else around. In turn, they exploit the boring line-after-line wrap to look like a barcode. Neat, in more than one sense of the word. You can buy them direct from Duncan's site in large and small sizes, for around $8.50 and $7 respectively. [Duncan Shotton via Design Boom]
