This desk wakes you up when your boss is coming

Are you tired and overworked? You probably need a nap. But don't let your boss catch you! Now there's a way your desk can keep an eye out for your supervisor and wake you up before you get caught, that is if you live in Europe.

Coming to you from Nissan, this high-tech desk is every slacker's dream. It's being called the "innovative office workstation" and it uses the same technology certain Nissan cars do, more specifically, the Qashqai car.

The desk uses the same technology that the Qashqai's back up camera uses to help drivers park. These cameras give you a 360 degree view of the entire office and can alert you when someone is approaching your desk.

There's also the Driver Attention Alert System in Qashqai cars that can give sleepy drivers a wake up jolt so they don't fall asleep at the wheel. The same tech has been put into these desks.

"Admittedly the Qashqai desk is a bit of fun, but it ably demonstrates the crossover potential of our technologies to help make people's lives easier," said David Moss, Vice President at Nissan's European Technical Centre.

See the video below to see it in action:

There currently aren't any plans to mass produce and sell the desks, but it's still fun to think of the possibilities.

What do you think? Should Nissan mass produce these workstations of the future? Let me know what you think by posting in the comments below.
