Stressed Out? Desktop Fireworks is an Instant Mid-Day Pick-Me-Up

Desktop Fireworks

Stress can make people do crazy things. It can make someone feel trapped and so wrapped up in trying to resolve the issue at hand that it makes them forget about the other things that matter. Work or school, after all, isn’t everything. So when you start feeling overwhelmed, hopeless, defeated, and helpless, then here’s what you should do: hit the Desktop Fireworks button and watch your desk come to life. You should call a friend afterward to talk things through, though, when the excitement has died down.

The Desktop Fireworks is the brainchild of Tomomi Sayuda. It’s actually a set of fun lights, noisemakers, and confetti crammed into random stationary and supplies you’d commonly find on a table.

Legs stretched out, crossed, or the number-four–which among these is your preferred sitting position? You might find yourself switching from one position to the another as you try to get comfortable.

La Fonction is a Mobile Workstation You Can Carry Around

La Fonction Mobile Workstation

Working out of the office can be such a pain sometimes. Sure, things are a whole lot easier and more convenient with the advent of laptops and tablets, but there are a bunch of things that you can’t take from the office with you when you go. Like your workstation, for example, because that would just be impractical, not to mention nonsensical.

The good thing is that there’s an alternative, and it’s the La Fonction mobile workstation. It folds up neatly into a briefcase when you’re traveling. When it’s open, it has designated slots and pockets for your pens, papers, files, and other stuff that you normally need or use when you’re working.

Treadmill Desk Lets You Work While You Exercise and Vice Versa

Treadmill Desk

Work can be such a pain. The same goes for exercise. Why someone would want to assemble a contraption that would allow people to do both things simultaneously is beyond me, but maybe there’s a demand for it because the treadmill desk exists. It’s called the TrekDesk and it’s a desk that can be attached to a treadmill so you can walk, job, or run at your desired pace while typing reports, crunching numbers, or doing whatever else you need to do on the desk.

The TrekDesk can be attached to virtually any treadmill and comes with a manuscript holder, a three-level file folder, two cup holders, and a headset stand. That way, there’s a space for most of your stuff so your work area won’t be so cluttered. The desk lets you work hard while you work out, although you probably shouldn’t sign anything while you’re on it because you’ll probably mess your signature up.

The TrekDesk retails for $479.

BendDesk is a Workstation and Multitouch Computer in One

BendDesk

Imagine a time when your computer is embedded right into your workstation. You don’t have to think too much because Malte WeissSimon VoelkerJan Borchers from the Media Computing Group and Christine Sutter from the Department of Work and Cognitive Psychology of the RWTH Aachen University in Germany came up with a working prototype that puts two and two together called the BendDesk.

The BendDesk is basically a working prototype of a desk that’s got a huge, multi-touch computer built right into it. The horizontal and vertical surfaces are connected, so users can interact and do their work on both screens seamlessly.

Check out a video of the BendDesk prototype at work after the jump.
