Laptop steering wheel desk

This is a real product, sold through Amazon, which "attaches to your steering wheel for easy access to a writing and drink storage surface."  As is so often the case, the most notable aspect of the product are the reviews...
My copilot and I both used these during our "daily grind" transcontinental flights from San Diego to Minneapolis... With our laptops firmly in place we were able to focus our attention on what really mattered, participating in raids with our WoW clan. During our last flight we were so immersed in trying to take down Eranikus that we overshot Minneapolis by a full hour and a half before some annoying flight attendant interrupted us, babbling something about "FAA and F16 fighters."
Before you get your knickers in a twist, the product is intended to be used as a desk in a stationary vehicle, and it does come with advice not to use it while driving.  Or flying.


  1. For a good laugh, check out some of the user submitted pictures of this product on Amazon.com:


    Make sure to read the captions too!

  2. I actually had a friend who used to have a long drive to work, and he installed a laptop stand in between the seats in front of the car. While he sat in traffic, he would be able to use the laptop. And people are worried today about texting while driving!
