Your Home Office Organization or Tech Tip: If you want to work with greater efficiency and productivity, just sit back in a reclining chair, navigate using your wireless laser air mouse and type in your wireless keyboard, while sitting over 6 feet away and using large multiple LED/ LCD screens that offers more workspace on your screens. No more sitting up close with strained eyes, sore bum and back at your desk, in front of a tiny LCD screen with limited desktop space.
If you want to experience pure entertainment, you can grab some popcorns and a pop, just sit back in a comfortable reclining chair, switch off the main lights using your remote control and turn on the desk LED lights that gives a soothing bluish glow. Enjoy yourself watching movies, playing games, or listening to music with a blast of HD sound, while feeling the base platform vibrate underneath you, that will rock your world with an ultimate multimedia experience! No more going to arcades, movie theaters or concerts as this is as close to a theatrical experience at your own home office.
This is my perception of a modern/ futuristic home computing lifestyle. I had custom built my ergonomic designed entertainment/ work station back in 2005, which features a large modified glass desk to support large LCD screens, a custom audio vibrating base platform, comfortable recliner seating with an ottoman, 100% energy efficient LED lighting technology and custom built computer systems. I also placed a large canvas picture I painted of a beach scenery behind, like I am relaxing in paradise at my office. I like to keep my space clean, tidy, and go paperless as much as possible in a digital age. I really do enjoy my comfortable fun personal work environment and an entertainment center, as I spend most of my time here to work long hours, surf the net, play games, watch movies and listen to music. It is my very favourite spot in my home besides my beloved bed.
If you want an impressive modern/ futuristic looking office workstation and an entertainment center, you need to have a high level of creativity, that is radically way beyond unusual than commonly familiar traditional offices. Invest in the latest electronic technologies available on the market. Such technologies includes latest computer systems, wireless networking gadgets, LED/ LCD HDTVs or monitors, HD audio system, LED lighting, modern furnitures/ decors, etc. to complement the modern theme. Although it would be nice to have, but you do not need to buy expensive high end designer furnitures, electronics, etc. to create a spectacular office. You do need to make sure you plan your budget wisely by shopping around for excellent deals, such as Boxing Day Sale. Creativity is the key on how you choose the style, design, color, organization, space usage, etc. that meets your office criteria and personal taste. What is important is having a luxurious home office that satisfies all your senses in style, convenience and comfort. Working at an office with large multiple LED screens with wireless technologies and reclining chairs will become more affordable and common in future home offices.
Visualize ahead into our future of how our home office can be revolutionized and improved in terms of aesthetic styling, ergonomics, comfort, functionality, efficiency, productivity, uniqueness, and leisurely enjoyment. As a result, my custom office workstation / entertainment center built in 2005 is the solution to my personal criteria of a modernistic home computing lifestyle.
