    Wow that's beautiful. Brings new meaning to the term dirty desk.

    So many premiums / marketing "toys" can be made from Tesla stuff!

    Sadly, however, from what I've learned, it's impossible to engage TM in a licensing scheme to resell anything with their logo or likeness on it.
    TM's Alexis told me 4 weeks ago that they had hired someone 6 months ago to handle stuff like that so maybe great "props" like the above can become reality?

    That desk is in the coworking part of Draper University. Draper (the D in DFJ Capital, early investor in Tesla) probably didn't have to do much licensing to get the desk. Look forward to seeing it in person next time I'm down that way.

    Sweet! To bad it doesn't include the 17" LCD on the dash. Those behind the desk could have used it for an awesome computer monitor.

    Cool idea, but something about it just messes with my brain. Something about it bugs me. Sort of like this:

    Super cool!

    Would like it even more if the 17inch screen was retained and used for office work.

    It's cool to look at, but feels a little like cutting a De Vinci or Rembrandt in half and hanging on your wall...Of course, I love the special touches of the super charger plug, and of course, the appropriately placed cup holder. I wonder if it has build in speakers that go to 11. :smile:

    Yes I saw it a few weeks ago. Talk about doing a double take! :)

    I live a few miles from downtown San Mateo, where the "Deskla" is located at Draper University.

    Tesla Desk

    Was dropping my daughter off at "Draper University School of Heroes" today and spotted this in the incubator across the street.

    She told me that her first assignment is to introduce Steve Jurvetson when he talks to the class on Tuesday.

    I told her she must lobby to let me attend if Elon talks. So jealous!
