Since this blog talks about and attempts to showcase creativity and innovation, the following piece came to my attention via a newsletter from American Luxury Magazine. Give it a read sometime.
I couldn’t resist sharing this. It’s really cool and yet hard to believe it’s just a concept. For now.
Mac|Life (another good publication) has come up with the iDesk, a desk where much of the normal clutter on your desk will be replaced by apps and widgets. It is essentially a huge iPad.
According to Mac|Life, the entire top of the desk is a touchscreen that can sync with all your iOS devices by just placing them on its surface. You will have the option of using a digital touchscreen mouse and keyboard or sticking with a traditional keyboard and mouse. The iDesk will have apps available for everything you need, from setting reminders or marking dates in a calendar, to posting updates on Facebook or sending out emails.
Custom desktop themes would allow you to give your desk a classic look or you can work on the water.
The iDesk is still just a concept, but considering the Microsoft Surface windows-based touch-tables have been available for awhile now, it could be hitting Apple Stores sooner rather than later.
So what do you think? Will this be something to which consumers would be attracted?
Innovation, at times, can be fickle. So what? Kudos to the Mac|Life gang for bringing this to light.
Depending on the price (if it ever gets that far), this reminds me of something appropriate for the Neiman-Marcus Christmas catalog.
