If you're spending long hours every day at your desk, you might as well be comfortable at your workstation. At least Martin Carpentier and Patrick Laflamme Duval of Modern Work Environment Lab (MWE Lab) believe so. The Canadian duo teamed up to produce the Emperor 200 workstation, which they say is the most advanced computer workstation on the market.
The futuristic set up resembles the tail of an emperor scorpion - hence the name "Emperor". For US$49,150, users can enjoy an optimised work area with a range of gadgets including a 10-inch touch-screen control centre, three 27-inch LED monitors and an integrated Bose audio system.
The model has been designed with every ergonomic comfort in mind. The electric-powered seat, available in Italian leather or suede, reclines 30 degrees, and comes with an adjustable headrest and lumbar support. It will even remember the way you like to sit via its preferred position memory settings. An ionic air purifier helps make sure the user has the perfect environment to enhance productivity.
The company says this elite workstation is popular with traders, video editors, web designers and professional poker players. Microsoft and the United States Marine Corps are among its customers.
Order requests take about 16 weeks for production from the Quebec-based company. MWE Lab also produces two other slightly pared-down models, the Emperor LX, designed for business executives and costs US$21,500, and the Emperor 1510 that retails at US$5,950.
