Who needs a desk when you can game or work from a futuristic pod?
If the thought of sitting at a desk to work or play games holds no excitement, Cooler Master has an alternative for you. It's called the Orb X, and it's a motorized, semi-enclosed cockpit that offers a private space while also making it look like you arrived from the future.
Cooler Master describes the Orb X as a multi-purpose workstation, but one look at it and you think "gaming." The upper dome section is motorized and rotates up and down to allow easy access to the pod. The ergonomic reclining seat offers six-way lumber adjustment and a headrest, and speakers are integrated offering 2.1 surround sound. The screen mounts on the upper dome allow for up to three 27-inch displays or one 49-inch ultrawide (and ideally curved) display.
A compartment on the back of the pod behind the seat hides a sliding tray where you can position either your gaming rig or games console, or why not both? By doing this, Cooler Master allows all the cables to be hidden away, but also keeps noise to a minimum. We have to hope the design team also thought very carefully about ventilation.
The Orb X will be available in white and black finishes complete with integrated lighting, but no price or release date has been announced yet. It certainly won't be cheap and there's likely to be quite a high delivery charge based on just how large and heavy this pod is going to be.
