And if you order teriyaki from across the street everyday (like a certain office lackey blogger) then... Well... I guess your pens already double as chopsticks?

The jury's still out on whether this is a masterwork of miniaturization or just very smart video editing. Fake or not, I want one. I need more room on my desk for my collection of novelty paperweights.

Not only is it steampunk, it's early '90s. Currently on display at The Mac Store in Eugene, Oregon, this mod is a combination 1991 Mac and 114-year-old Remington typewriter. Its features are a mix of 90s and 19th-century, too: the mouse is made from a Morse telegraph key, while the modem is 56k and the operating system is Mac OS 7.5, complete with a word processor, calculator, spreadsheet program, flight simulator, and Tetris.

A purse with a built-in iPad tablet frame and cover. Could be useful, but considering the abuse I've seen purses be put through, it could also step up the ol' wear and tear on your precious tablet. Maybe they'll make a purse where the iPad is stored in the middle, and the rest of the compartments are stuffed with package peanuts and bubble wrap.

Presenting the Sputnik 0667 PC. Built by a student in Sweden, it boasts some impressive specs (4 GB RAM, 3.2 GHz Core i3 500 processor) and was no doubt inspired by watching too many reruns of Leave It to Beaver. I'll say this, it's nice to see something retro-styled and fitted with wood paneling that isn't steampunk.

For a fee, Chi Ha Paura will replace the boring ol' plastic "4" key on your keyboard (it's the one with the dollar sign, get it?) with a gold-plated silver key. It's pretty much the office equivalent of this:

It's a desk that's attached to an elliptical machine. The machine is "designed to be pedaled at slower cadences that won't break one's concentration (or cause one to break a sweat." I don't know why anyone would need these, I just run in place while I'm seated at my desk. Burns more calories, and the impact of the foot hitting the floor builds more muscle.
