In February, we reported on a Kickstarter campaign to fund a product called Gamers Paradise, an impressive looking gaming PC-workstation desk with a number of built in USB ports, display ports, power outlets and more to free PC users of cable clutter. Unfortunately, the desk failed to reach its Kickstarter goal.
However, the creator of the desk, David Wrobel, decided to go back and make a few changes, along with changing the name of the product to just the Paradise Desk. He relaunched his Kickstarter campaign a couple of weeks ago and it has not only exceeded the main $30,000 goal but has broken through a number of stretch goals.
The new Paradise Desk has eight USB ports built into the top of the desk. One is placed on the left side for people who want to quickly install a flash drive or portable hard drive, while three others have been put in the center of the desk for plugging in accessories like a keyboard and mouse. Four more are located on the back of the desk for items like printers and other extras. Four power plugs have been placed on the back of the desk.
The Paradise Desk also comes with a DVI and HDMI port for plugging in a monitor and two LED lights on the back for nighttime gaming and work. Audio ports are placed on the front left corner and a switch is included on the right side so users can switch from headphones to speakers instantly. The dimensions of the desk are 62 inches wide, 30.5 inches in height and 28 inches in depth.
The Kickstarter campaign for the Paradise Desk has now reached over $93,000 with 17 days still to go. The desk has reached a number of stretch goals, including adding custom cables for a PC monitor and a headphone holder. If it reaches $110,000 the desk will get LED lighting on the underside of the desk and $130,000 adds a cup holder. The Kickstarter campaign is asking for a $349 donation in order for a person to get a standard Paradise Desk, but higher donations will get a limited edition or even a custom designed desk.
