Star Trek Tablet Easel

This is a geeky easel for parking your tablet on your desk. The design is based on Picard’s computer from his ready room in the TNG series. The tandem of the tablet and easel makes it appear like a functioning Star Trek computer (which was also touchscreen on the show). This prop would be a great addition for geeks who refer to their workspace as a “ready room”.

It features an adjustable backboard (to tilt your tablet) and a Lazy Susan to swivel it in place. You could go a step further and make it a wireless charging dock as well. The front section could also provide some storage space (for office stationary). If you want to be really fancy a fake back-lit screen could be included in the easel for when there is no tablet in place.

Fargo Wood Chipper Pencil Sharpener

As far as geeky office stationary goes, the red Swingline stapler from Office Space is both iconic and emblematic of the film it is associated with. I believe there needs to be more office solutions that are in the same vein as the Milton’s prized stapler.

Fellow artists will probably mock me for this (can’t handle quick keys, Dave?), but yeah this is something I would like when I am working in Photoshop. Just something I can park in front of me for switching tools on the fly. This would be similar to smaller keypads used for PC games.
