A guy called Frederick Vandenbosch decided to recycle some old electronics components and build a Raspberry Pi powered desk. It looks really cool.
Int he video you can see how he did it, and later a demonstration.

I participated in element14’s “Sci-Fi Your Pi” Design Challenge and built a futuristic desk with built-in LEDs, wireless charger and capacitive touch sensors. A Raspberry Pi 2 desktop computer pops in and out of the desk.

The cool thing is how relatively simple it seems to actually make. However we think that given some more time, it could have been taken even further. Showing critical information on the desk etc. Still, a very nice project!

Check out the source too, where he explains what components he used and all the features.

    Mindset is one aspect of internet marketing that folks assume won’t talk to you on the subject of.
    Many of these marketing strategies were slower and much more costly than the choices today.

    This is how it rival your comps in skin condition? ISucceed is actually a estate training and mentoring
    center. You must focus only throughout the interested buyers on your land property
    and real-estate property.
