THE COMPUTERIZED DESK 

 

this desk is currently under construction 



on 1 half of the desk is a computer built in under a glass screen on the other half of the desk is some old hard drives opened and some random circuit boards


the screen will rise up out of the desk via a system that has 2 weights 1 on either side with the total weight being 1 pound heavier than the screen and wooden frame
