Let's just hope that the glass top is easy to remove in case something needs to be replaced / upgraded. Click here to view the first image in this week's funny work pictures gallery.

Remix Mini Android PC

It fits in your pocket, costs $40, but at the flick of a switch, Remix Mini becomes a functional Android PC.

Computer Built Into Desk

You can either buy a desktop computer from your local electronics store, build a tower yourself, or buy all the parts and stuff them into a custom-built desk, like these geeks. Don't fancy the LED lights or transparent glass? There's always the option of hiding all the parts inside a minimalist-style desk, similar to what you'd find in a Apple Store.

Battlefield PC

It's always good to revisit the good old days of PC modding, back when geeks took pride in creating custom towers. For this flashback, we bring you a Battlefield-inspired (game) PC that even includes a built-in energy drink cooler. Unfortunately, we don't know if the minigun spins or if the switches actually do something. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Are family members and / or unwanted friends over? Well, this closet is just for you. Simply pop open the doors and you'll be ready for yet another 24-hour PC gaming marathon (or console if you have one setup). Unfortunately, attaching an external air conditioning unit might make things a bit too obvious, so you'll have to find other ways to get fresh air before passing out.

Skyrim is already a very immersive and fun game, but when you throw Oculus Rift into the mix, things get even more insane. To show off Cyberith's Virtualizer treadmill, the company strapped one of its employees into the rig, where he became Dovahkiin. He was able to look around using the Oculus Rift and waved Wiimotes around to control weapons as well as magic. Instead of pressing W on a keyboard to walk around, he walked around on the blue circular padding of the Virtualizer. Continue reading for a video and more information.
