As much as I love my computer, I've always wanted to hide it away as much as possible (mostly for space), and always admired the future tech showcased in movies where computers are invisibly incorporated into furnishings (think The 5th Element
). The XYZ Computer Desk has that same idea in mind, hiding and incorporating all the components and cable management into the desk's form factor...
We enjoy the design of the Apple computer range, though on a functional level, PC is preferred. So we designed a desk/computer as beautiful as a Mac but easily upgradeable like a PC. All computer components and cable management is contained within the thickness of the desk, and when upgrading is required, the desk lid simply flips open. CDRW/DVD, USB and Hot Keys are located on the side of the desk.
The XYZ Computer Desk remains a concept only, but we're wondering how easy/hard this would be to create ourselves using a flip open desk, a Mac Mini or Asus EBox, and some PC fans for ventilation in the back of the desk.
