Yet another sign that the Japanese are a really... uh... creative yet lonely sort. This here is a dinnerware set for one made to look like a laptop. The design is loosely based on the bento box: the keyboard is a container, the display is a plate, the CD is a smaller plate, the mouse is a two-sided spice dispenser, and the mousepad is a napkin. The artist says it's a statement on how most modern workers' only dining companions are their computers, which supposedly means we're all working too much or something. I personally don't see anything wrong with eating with my computer; it doesn't complain when I'm surfing the Internet instead of "eating with the family"... like that ever did any good to anybody.

Called "Download," this set is really an artistic piece made out of clay and ceramic glaze, and it's not for commercial purposes.
