Aftershock PC is a homegrown company specialising in customisable computer rigs. Over the years, the company’s popularity has skyrocketed thanks to its competitive pricing and spectacular service. It’s heartening to see a local brand punching above its weight in a market that’s become so saturated, thanks to the increased appeal of PC gaming. Today, Aftershock has pushed its boundaries once again, unveiling the Omnidesk, a modular desk setup that is suitable for both work and play.
Standing desks are becoming increasingly popular, and it you may think it’s a hipster fad, but there is some history behind this contraption. In the 18 and 19th century, standing desks were apparently popular among the rich, and some notable users were Leonardo da Vinci, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson. They were among the greatest minds ever known so perhaps there is some merit in a standing desk after all. Of course, it’s also a lot more healthy than sitting on your butt all day.
But we digress. The Omnidesk is motorised and has 4 programmable buttons so you can preset your height preferences. The motor is hidden within the desk and it’s legs, so you can have a very minimalistic design if you so wish. It is fully customisable of course, so you can add retractable USB and power inputs, LED lights, and under table cable trays to hide those unsightly wires.
Work and Play
Like we mentioned, Aftershock PC is all about tailoring a product to fit your needs so the Omnidesk will suit all kinds of profiles, ranging from an investment banker to a pro gamer. You can pick from a bunch of various finishes, from something more professional that’ll fit in your office to something a little more loud and will be right at home in your man cave. In case you’re wondering about durability, the Omnidesk can manage up to a 130kg load, which is pretty impressive.
Price and Availibility
Now, how much would a motorised desk cost you? The founders believe it should be accessible to everyone, so incredibly, the Omnidesk starts at $630. You’ll be hard-pressed to find something similar at the same price. Learn more about the Omnidesk here: http://www.theomnidesk.com
