Future panders to technophobia

Future Electronic Furniture is attempting to ease the more traditionally minded into the technology revolution with its Powerdesk range.

The Powerdesk installs the PC in a hardwood desk and includes a flat screen and cordless mouse. The keyboard sits in a retractable drawer, saving space and reducing the risk of repetitive strain injury, says Future. Floppy and CD-Rom drives and the power switch are in lockable front panels. Other components are locked under the tabletop, accessible to users.
