The desk of the future.
Remember being a kid, way back in the day, when summers were always sunny and having tatoys was a treat? (And yeah, I call all crisps Tatoys, in my beautiful mind, all crisps are generically called Tatoys!) But do ya remember watching those oh so cool American movies and TV shows?
You know the ones! Something from the future is on earth, or we have been invaded by aliens. My favorite TV show, as a kid was StarTrek. And do ya remember the delicious snippets of their alien technology that would populate our minds.
Well now we have alien technology, in the form of EXOdesk by EXOPC.
It is a much more reasonably priced version of the MicrosoftSurface (USD 7,600 approx)
It will make an appearance by 2012 at the CES in January. an interactive desk, sort of similar to the Microsoft surface in desk form. It will have a 40 inch HD touchscreen at the tip of your fingers. I suppose you could say it is a really big tablet. One of the details I could find was that it will have a widget with IE, mail app, social media timeline, calendar and of course you can customize it. You can even musical instruments on the EXOdesk.
You will still need a mouse and a keyboard. And apparently the cost will be USD 1,300.
In lay man terms some dudes took a LCD TV added a touch screen and a special os interface, but how cool it is that we now have alien technology!
Man the battle stations, code orange, Captain Jean-Luc Picard is going to war and he needs us to get to our touchscreen stations!
See this YT clip for all the gory beauty of this magnificent beast of a desk.

Many thanks for the comment. I am off to watch that video now, thanks for sharing it.
More of a Kirk than a Picard man myself.
If you want to see some really impressive technology, go back to the era of the Apollo program. The great disappointment of that time was that we never got funding for the turbo encabulator.
