How would you like that to be yours? No, not the MacBook. Or the iPhone. Or the sofa. Or… Okay, we’re talking about that chopping board-looking object with the holes drilled in it.
Cult of Mac first reported on the Slate Mobile AirDesk back when it was just a Kickstarter gleam in the eye of creator Nathan Mummert. Since then, the project has been fully-funded (five times over, to boot) and gone into production.
Its full asking price is $129.99, but its currently selling for $98 online, with a shipping date of January. A second production run is also underway. Users can choose between white, gray, and black mousepads, and also left or right handed model types.
Despite its cost, there’s clearly a demand for this, and it does look an appropriately attractive fit for Apple’s streamlined products. If Jony Ive were to make a bamboo slab with holes for airflow it would probably look a whole lot like this.
Whatever that means.
