Envy fuels ambition. But we're feeling a little let down by the fact that our own 20-something's humble workspace pales in comparison to the desk in this pic—the desk of a pre-teen Web designer...

Most kids are still begging their parents for their own computer at 12, but Brandon Wang has an HP computer, Kensington Slim Type keyboard, Logitech MX wireless mouse, Harmon/Kardon 2.1 speaker set, a 24-inch SyncMaster P2570 screen and an Upek Eikon fingerprint reader.

Featured on Lifehacker, this workspace trumps many other spaces we've seen—even adult ones—by combining awesome tech with gorgeous lighting. He says all the lighting features cost less than $50. Mainly because he used IKEA's Dioder LED strips (two behind the monitor and one under the desk for keyboard lighting).

Pretty great and creative stuff coming from a kid who taught himself HTML at 8 years old and CSS at age 10, huh?
