We know, we know, office jobs can be a little bad on the body. Sitting all day, relying on vending machines for some snacks, and the never-ending birthday parties with cake and such can take their toll on the body. Some offices include gym memberships, fitness centers, or healthy options in the breakroom.
Sometimes, though, you just need to snack at the desk. Foodiggity has found two simple changes to your desktop furniture that can completely change the way you sneak a snack.
The first is The Keyboard Plate, a standard keyboard (or in a way, the ergonomic keyboard that was all the rage in the end of the last century) that features a plate in the middle of the keys. Pizza, popcorn, and whatever you want to on the plate, and have some extra calories with your QWERTY. The item doesn’t actually seem to be available for sale, instead more of a piece of art.
Secondly is Bite Me , which is an edible desk lamp. Looking like Fruit By The Foot strengthened and straightened into a lamp. Vegetable glycerin, agar, and an embeddable LED light source. Take the LED electronics out and soften the rest of the material in water, and it’s edible. Might not be tasty, especially if you’ve left it out on the tabletop for months, acquiring dust and such, but it would technically be edible.
The days of office fridges might be over, if these desktop replacements get major acceptance. As pieces of art, though, it seems a little unlikely they’ll reach mass market consumption.
