First look at Origin PC's prototype standing desk

The newest prototype from Origin PC looks to be a promising addition to the growing line-up of premium standing desks.


Origin PC has made quite a name for itself as a builder of premium PCs for those that want excellent build quality and cable management. Of course, that quality has always come at a price, and the latest prototype from the team at Origin PC looks to be expanding the company’s offerings quite a bit.

Meet Origin PC’s prototype standing desk. Featuring a frame made completely out of steel, the automatic sit/stand desk can support not only your peripherals and other goodies, but it can also house a PC that weighs up to 100 pounds thanks to a compartment that can be attached to the bottom of the frame. According to the person we spoke with at CES, the desk can hold small form-factor PCs, or much larger towers as well.

As you can see in the video above, the desk looks quite similar to more other standing desks available out there. Using a control switch on the right-hand side, you’re able to lift or lower the desk to the desired height for both standing or sitting, and you can even save various adjustments for easy access to your favorite set ups.

There’s currently no price of known release date for the desk, and since it is a prototype, it’s very possible that Origin might change some things up about it as they continue to work on it and perfect the overall design. For now, though, it looks to be a nice addition to the array of standing desks already available for users to purchase, but ultimately, price will play a large part in just how popular this desk becomes once it releases.
