Who says you can't be productive in style? Here are few luxury products to help you be more organized and efficient.

1. Take better notes.

Studies show that if you write your notes down instead of typing them on a computer or tablet, you'll actually be able to recall them better. To make digitizing those notes easier, try a pen equipped with Bluetooth technology. Some work on special paper (like the Livescribe 3 Smartpen) while others let you jot ideas down on paper or your digital devices (like the Equil Smartpen). Such tools connect with apps to help you store, search and edit the notes you take.

2. Find your way. Navdy, a "Google Glass for the car' affixes to your dashboard, projecting directions unto your windshield. Get a call or a text? Swipe the air left to answer and right to dismiss, all without taking your eyes off the road.

4. Clean up. Do you get your best ideas in the shower? Just stepping away for a minute and standing under the water is always a good way to jumpstart the innovation process. Kohler makes a $199 showerhead called Moxie that comes with a wireless, rechargeable, Bluetooth synced speaker that lets you pump in your favorite tunes or news and podcasts while your stress melts away.
