'Connect-A-Desk' is a workaholic's dream

It straps a computer around your neck.


And here we thought the "Hip Office" concept was a joke. Now we have the "Connect-A-Desk," a real product that's also ripe for an SNL parody.

Like the Hip Office, it straps to a computer to your body, but around the neck instead of the waist. It's kind of a laptop version of the keytar, with a dork factor that rivals the "Light Head Magnifier." The site claims that it's "ergonomically designed" but, depending on the weight of the computer, we can't imagine using this for any length of time before needing a trip to the chiropractor.

Our take? It's yet another devious tactic by management to chain us to our work.
