Trap-door desk hits a sour note

It looks like an upright piano that's been gutted.

Regardless of its function, this has got to be the ugliest workstation since the " TreadDesk ." Even its name, the "flipIT DUO," is irritating--it looks like the shift keys got locked while they were writing the press release.

This contraption is designed to let two 19-inch monitors pop up from the desk surface like a reverse trap door, according to BornRich. But the saved desktop space is more than offset by its offensive aesthetics: It resembles an ill-conceived DIY project that gutted an old used upright piano and stuffed some computer hardware inside.

That would have been more practical, come think of it. Then they could have hooked up the foot pedals to handy " StealthSwitches " for both screens.
