This is what happens when you give a hippie a screwdriver, a budget and a directive to redesign your office. Konica Minolta claims this prototype bizhub mish-mash will increase productivity and decrease stress levels, but if I had to stare at a psychedelic coffee pot slash retro lamp slash printerscannerfaxmachine every day, I'd throw myself out a window. Is there actually a serious company out there that would consider this affront to eyesight a useful tool? This may fit in with the culture in Tommy Chong's paper supply firm, but this abomination can't be the wave of the future, can it?
