Like the Hip Office, it straps to a computer to your body, but around the neck instead of the waist. It's kind of a laptop version of the keytar, with a dork factor that rivals the "Light Head Magnifier." The site claims that it's "ergonomically designed" but, depending on the weight of the computer, we can't imagine using this for any length … Read more
Does your desk look like a FEMA-level disaster area? Ignore the dispirited sidelong glances of your more organized co-workers. That tower of 10-year-old notepads spilling over into the next cube might actually be the downpayment on your house.
MyFax, a provider of Internet fax services, has launched its MyFax Messy Office Contest, an online search for the office or cubicle most likely to make the average neat freak go into convulsions. The company is offering a $10,000 grand prize to the winner, along with additional prizes (like free MyFax accounts) totaling another $5,000.
So in a culture that … Read more
It must be tough for the Nex-sys salespeople to keep a straight face while pitching their products as "workstations." Clearly, whoever ends up using the company's line of "V1" desks and chairs won't be getting much work done because they'll be too busy honing their skills on Halo 3.
While initially touting their workstations' ergonomic and space-saving designs, Nex-sys immediately adds that they can also be used as a "gaming chair, flight simulator, and racing simulator," as well as a "personal movie theater." In addition to its height-adjustable monitor … Read more
There's some kind of conspiracy in the air. A managerial one. First there's a concept to make us more productive by strapping a laptop to the waist, and now we find that there's yet another attempt to tether workers to their desks with a new built-in treadmill.
Judging by the photos, it looks as if the "TreadDesk" could even elevate and fire up while you're still typing away, not missing a beat on that Excel spreadsheet. This invention of the devil already has some competition, however: Just a few months ago the "Walkstation&… Read more
Apple doesn't need any accessories to validate its station as a cultural mainstay. But if it did, what better indication could there be than a desk designed specifically for the Macintosh?
Heckler Design says its "OneLessDesk" has multiple uses but still saves space as the lower "deck" can be stowed under the top when not in use, according to BornRich. Can it be used for non-Apple computers as well? Of course, but that wouldn't take advantage of the ready-made branding that comes with any product claiming to be made for the Mac. And when … Read more

Where's a work desk when you need one? This may be the answer--a rolling luggage cart that doubles as a desk and can be tucked away quickly and neatly when they call for final boarding.
Sure, you can always prop your laptop on your lap (otherwise why call it a laptop?). But when you have to balance a mouse, your cell phone, a music player, and possibly even an external drive, you'll need a full-fledge working surface.
To keep everything at a manageable 11 pounds, this 2-in-1 movable desk is molded in lightweight ABS plastic with an anodized … Read more
Here's something that makes especially good sense whether you live in a cramped studio apartment or a mansion in earthquake country.
The LCD desk mount saves space and will make sure you never break another computer monitor--at least not by knocking it onto the floor, accidentally or otherwise. The device is affixed to the edge of a desk or even to the lip of those unsightly holes left for cables and wires. The biggest plus of all, as far as we're concerned, is that it supposedly requires no tools.
The mount, which can handle screens up to 24 … Read more
If you're famous at work for doing the impossible, it's time to deck out your desk with something fitting.
This limited-edition M.C. Escher Waterfall Sculpture is available on ThinkGeek for an impossible-to-believe price of $59.99. Only 500 of the sculptures exist, so you should act quickly if you want to get in on the fun.
The sculpture, based on the famous M.C. Escher woodcut, is just six inches tall. That puts it squarely in the running for the object with the most ability to blow your mind per square inch.
Alas, the water in the … Read more
Not content to rest easy after its announcement of a slew of new cell phones and a Bluetooth watch, Sony Ericsson has also announced several new accessories as well. They are all music-related in some way or another, starting off with the MDS-65 Music Desk Stand, which acts as a portable speaker of sorts for your Sony Walkman phone, and the MMR-70 FM transmitter for playing music on a nearby FM radio.
And what's a cell phone accessory announcement without a few headsets? The HBH-DS200 is the only stereo Bluetooth headset in the group, and it has a few … Read more
