This Is a Work Station Fit For an Emperor

This, as you might be able to tell, is no normal desk set-up. Designed to provide the ultimate in both comfort and productivity, we introduce to you the MWE Lab Emperor 1510 LX work station—and if you have to ask how much it costs, you probably can't afford it.

Update: Sorry, guys, it looks like this has in fact been around for a while. It's still utterly ridiculous, though.

The five-monitor display station swings down on a retractable “scorpion tail” to encompass the users with visual stimulation; an integrated Bose sound system caters for every aural whim. And the reclining Italian leather chair on its rotating base keeps your ass pampered all day long.

And while that may all provide the productivity boost you're desperate for, it'll but a dent in your bank balance, too. At an eye-watering $21,500 this thing really does live up to its name. [Gigazine via Rocket News]
