Every now and then I come across people who are cribbing about work from home lifestyle. Despite many companies offering their employees remote work, a lot of folks complain about not being able to travel, camp, roam and enjoy freely, simply because they don’t have the equipment to poise their laptops on.
And let’s be honest, placing laptops on laps (in spite of the nomenclature) isn’t the ideal way of working; at least not for me, I simply don’t get in the groove. So, we are left with two options; either carry a 40lbs desk or opt for a 7.7lbs Nomad desk that packs into your backpack.
Currently a subject of a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, the Nomad Desk is for digital nomads who don’t like getting confined within four walls. The brain behind the creation is Paris-based entrepreneur Richard Heng who wanted a foldable, portable and height-adjustable work surface for workaholics who love spending time outdoors.
Featuring an anodized aluminum frame and a clear plexiglass surface, the desk is poised on telescoping legs with 180-degree adjustable feet, along with polyurethane grips. Offering such a height variation, it can be used as both a standing and sitting desk.
The desk is height-adjustable and can be compressed from 43.3 inches to 9.8 inches with a single-button release system. Courtesy of the adjustable feet, the desk can be set up on slopes as well.
There are also some add-on accessories that can be attached to the table, with the likes of a cup and phone holder. Supporting up to a maximum load of 15.5lbs, the the Nomad desk can makes a perfect working space outdoors. It is expected to retail at $320 approx.
