Folks in the market for a new desk may want to check out this new bamboo-topped TechDesk. It looks a bit odd at first, but the holes, cup holders and other cutouts were designed to keep you, your laptop and all of your iOS devices organized and accessible.

The holes you see in the middle of the desk are actually air vents for keeping your MacBook (or other notebook) running cool. There’s also a built-in mouse pad, slots for your coffee cup and magazines, and then multiple docks for your iPhones and iPads…

The desk itself is cut from pure, premium bamboo, protected by a sheet of clear acrylic, and the legs are made of steel. These materials make for a strong, lightweight desk that can support all of your devices with ease, and is manufactured in the United States.

TechDesk is currently a Kickstarter project looking to raise funding for production. And it’s doing great so far, sitting at nearly 5x its original goal of $12,000 with 16 days left. If you’re interested, you can still get in on the pre-order list for $448—retail will be $698.

I’m afraid this would be too small for me and all of my gear—MacBook on a stand, large LCD monitor and printer. Plus it’s kind of pricey. But I also believe you get what you pay for, and you can see the quality in the TechDesk just by looking at the above photos.
