‘Refold’ is a Portable Cardboard Standing Desk

Refold Standing Desk

 

Standing desks are all the rage these days. There are a number of purported health benefits to working while standing up, although they come with several risks and warnings too. At the end of the day, it all boils down to preference. If portability and cost are high up on your list, then you might want to get Refold.

It’s a foldable standing desk made from cardboard components, which makes it light enough to be assembled, disassembled, and transported by a single person. And since it’s made from cardboard, it’s 100% recyclable. Just don’t get it wet, and you should be fine.

Refold is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $115 will get you one of your very own.

For Work and Play: Rubik’s Cube Desk Light

Rubik’s Cube Desk Light

The Rubik’s cube desk light is perfect for your desk. First of all, it’s a desk lamp, so you’ve got a legitimate reason to display this colorful little thing on your work station. Second, it’s a Rubik’s cube. It’s not just for show either, because you can actually play with this lamp as you would a regular Rubik’s cube. Regardless, it does make for a pretty awesome decorative piece, doesn’t it?

On a full charge, the Rubik’s cube will give you two hours of playing time. When you feel like giving your hands a rest or if you have to get back to work (yikes!), just mount it on the triangular base to recharge.Continue Reading

A Snugli Baby Carrier For Your Laptop?

By Jonathan Kimak

Like the majority of laptop owners, I want to be able to use my laptop absolutely everywhere I go. However, I’m not so sure I want to be able to use it while walking down the road blissfully unaware of that approaching pick-up truck headed right for me. But what do I know.

The people at Think Geek have created the Connect-A-Desk Laptop Holder that they sell for $40. It includes a laptop harness and a “desk” which is essentially a board fitted to the harness that allows you to stand and type with both hands instead of doing the awkward one hand holding the laptop and the other hand pecking away at the keys.

For the standing part the laptop desk looks OK and could be useful when you are in standing room only situations and need to take notes or see the latest videos from this year’s E3. But when the site suggests that you can walk around and type with this it makes me cringe at the catastrophes bound to happen. It’s already easy enough to get distracted with little cell phones, PDAs and mp3 players. A full sized laptop with DVD movies and games could have you successfully save your character by jumping over a dark chasm, while you fall down a real chasm.

Caveat Geektor.
