Sophie Kirkpatrick has the perfect solution for your plight; a desk with a hood! Pull it up when you want to shut out the world and concentrate on the task; pull it down when you are ready to mingle.

Too busy to work out on a daily basis? Turn to the TrekDesk treadmill desk, which encourages you to walk slowly on a treadmill while you talk to clients, type up proposals, or catch up on your email.

The desktop offers a generous workspace that measures 72 inches long by 34 inches wide.
1. Steampunk Desk
The desk features dozens of gears of different sizes that all sync together. The effect is such that the entire desk is “running” under its own power. The framework of the desk is wood with oversized rivets and bolts added to complete the look. Also, the legs are designed to mimic the look of swing-arms found on almost every motor on the road. The keyboard tray is also integrated into the gearing system.
