Loose Threads: Shoot from the Hip
It takes a certain kind of mind to create a wearable desk. The obvious problems—like going outside or interacting with others—have to go completely overlooked through every stage of the production process. Then again, it only takes one person to say yes, so while brighter minds are working on new ways to wear houndstooth, hk-ergonomics is taking us one step closer to being cyborgs.
The Hip Office is essentially a back brace with arms, allowing you to keep up that game of freecell while walking, sitting in a chair, or kneeling in solemn prayer. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be chained to your desk, this is the way to find out. Alternately, if you’re adopting Doc Ock as a style icon, it’s this season’s must have.
