Attach the Twelve South BackPack to an iMac and you can use it to hide accessories behind the desktop computer’s screen, saving on visible clutter.

Despite the name, the device isn’t really a backpack. It’s an aluminum shelf that attaches to the Mac’s stand.

A clean desk is a happy desk. Clutter is actually a cause of stress. If you’d like to clear off your desk but keep peripherals you simply can’t give up, you might be interested Twelve South’s latest offering.

The BackPack for 24-inch iMacs provides a place to put portable hard drives, USB-C hubs and other accessories. It’s a handy way to stash them out of sight behind the all-in-one computer’s screen.

Alternatively, if the back of your iMac faces your office, you can place art, small plants, etc., on the shelf.
