Today In Things That Actually Exist: The Steering Wheel Desk

Winona Dimeo-Ediger / May 10, 2013

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Wheelmate steering wheel desk. According to the product description, the Wheelmate is “light enough to carry, but sturdy enough to support a notepad, lunch, or even a laptop.” In the very last sentence, the company cautions against using the product while driving (apparently it’s made for parking lot lunch enthusiasts), but it’s hard to imagine that every tech-addicted workaholic will heed that suggestion. Luckily the product has already been skewered by Amazon reviewers with their trademark brand of sarcasm and satire. “Now I can drive my children to soccer practice without having to choose between their safety and my coke habit,” says one. Another appreciates the Wheelmate’s efficiency: “All the things I can get done while driving – a perfect way to use otherwise wasted time!” There are over 900 more (mostly bogus) reviews where that came from. If you have some free time today, I highly recommend scrolling through. But please pull over first. [Amazon]
