Hip Desk Attaches Your Laptop To Your Body

Hip Desk From Lindo: Geekish or Freakish?

I stopped and stared at this product for a few beats too long on OhGizmo!. I am still having a hard time wrapping my head around what it is and how exactly you're supposed to use it. Basically, the Lindo Hip Desk is a piece of fiberglass that wraps around your hips to become a mobile laptop desk. Talk about being attached to your work! (Bah-dumb-chah!)

Anyway, I don't think I can get behind this (and the dumb jokes continue, folks!), but this might be useful to someone . . . somewhere. Those dudes who still wear fanny packs? Maybe. It's still a concept, so you don't have to fear getting hit by a Hip Desk attached to an office drone out on the street quite yet.

Wow... That is crazy looking. My laptop battery goes dead to quick to be walking around without it being plugged in. I think I would have to laugh if I saw someone with this.

you know...i don't think its too crazy, as long as you're in the privacy of your own home. but then you wouldn't need it anyways.

Yeah, if you can't part from your computer long enough to WALK somewhere, whether it be the parking lot or elevator...yeah, issues.

wow, the first thing I think of when I see that is to point and laugh. I can not imagine seeing anyone walking down the street or just wearing that period.

DUDE. I wanted to vote, but the choices were "freakish" and "geekish". Hello! Where was my choice for BOTH? My husband smirked at this but, um. yeah. WHATEVER. This is the same guy that takes his laptop into the loo. He lost all credibility with that one.

That looks just scary! I can imagine a guy walking down the street like that and a little kid holding his mother's hand going "MOMMY, THAT MAN HAS A COMPOOTER ATTATCHED TO HIS STOMACH!" LOL. And I wouldn't take the chance that my computer wouldn't fall, and it would be difficult to type, since you're moving meanwhile.
