Times are changing, and while we can appreciate an elegant and stately office as much as the next gentleman, vintage electronics and computer equipment just can’t keep up. Aesthetics are important for image and peace of mind while pushing our productivity to it’s limits, but maybe it’s time to redefine elegance. Take your work space from a vintage or modern look straight into the future!
3 cutting-edge devices offering the power to bolster your performance, style and quality of life:
- The Emperor – $5,300-$12,000
- It may look like something straight out of a science fiction movie, but this workstation is no joke. The ergonomic design is specifically engineered for comfort and productivity while supporting your body through long and intense sessions on the computer. The seat feels more like a cockpit and reclines into an extremely comfortable position with the option to have your legs elevated as well. While designing your own custom workstation, you’ll have the option to choose between one and six monitors to suspend comfortably in your direct field of vision, adding up to 5.1 surround sound speakers built into the frame, and a tray to rest your arms and keyboard on is included as well. There’s even an option to add a side-arm to support a laptop. Forget all of the hassles of trying to make a traditional desk work for a modern, tech-heavy office setting and consider The Emperor that was built specifically for accommodating a modern workflow.
- Surface Studio 2 – $3,500-$4,000
- Microsoft finally built a solid design-focused workstation that can rival not only Apple, but also workhorse CAD stations as well. The touch screen will allow you to get hands on with your design or offer the ability to use a stylus to help draw your designs directly into the computer. While all-in-one devices have previously been very underwhelming on the power and performance side, the Surface Studio 2 is a real juggernaut that provides state-of-the-art performance with sleek and modern input options to create a slick workstation unlike anything you’ve used before.
- The Looking Glass Pro – $6,000
- If you do any kind of design work, such as 3D modeling, CAD, or any other graphically intensive computer work, then you may be aware that VR is steadily becoming more and more a part of the job. The idea of putting on a headset and trying to manipulate strange peripherals in the middle of your office doesn’t really appeal to everyone though, and this is where The Looking Glass Pro comes in. Meet “The World’s First Desktop Holographic Display.” That’s right, you can have an actual 3D projection of your creations right on your desktop, or perhaps on your new Emperor workstation if you’re going all out.
