Intriguing Gaming/PC Desk Kickstarter Project Called ‘Paradise Desk’

  Over the years that many of us have been gaming, one of the most overlooked aspects of the experience is the desk. It’s easy to ignore it once we find a desk that is even remotely comfortable, but that doesn’t mean there can’t be a better solution. Enter “Paradise Desk.” This is a new Kickstarter (crowd-funding) project we found intriguing and worth sharing. Whether you are a PC or a console gamer, or you game on both, some of us use a desk for gaming. Obviously, most console gamers will likely have their setup in the living room, so a desk is moot for them, but there are still a few out there who use a desk instead. The “Paradise Desk” could be the perfect solution for any of these needs. The folks at “Paradise Desk” aim to offer a desk that is the best of all possible worlds. It offers an attractive modern industrial design aesthetic, and melds it with the ability to utilize space more efficiently and cover up those annoying cables strewn about. Here’s a quote from the developer with a quick description of their concept, KickStarter – Paradise Desk Concept Video In the video above you get a good look at the prototype they are planning to mass-produce. What do you guys think? Could this be the gamer’s ultimate desk? Here’s a link to the Kickstarter project if you want to check out more info, or if you want to join the project.
