“With the increasing popularity of digital cameras, scanners and MP3 players which plug into desktop computers, the problem of space on desks is getting messy. Tripping over tangled cables, finding homes for gadgets, and running out of ports to plug into can mean accommodating the hi-tech bits and bobs computer users want close at hand is a frustrating business.

“As part of his final year design project at Huddersfield University, John Treby created an innovative workstation which he hopes will mean users will not have to trip over themselves to reach their MP3s and cameras. Inspired by the sleek and compact form of Apple’s iMac, Mr Treby found no one was providing users with a desirable desk for self-contained units which actually enhanced the look of the machine itself. So he designed one which he describes as ‘your digital hub for your iMac.’ It is called the iDesk workstation and reflects the opaque and perspex look which characterise Apple’s products.” BBC reports.
