Winter’s Coming, Vacation at Your Desk

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  November 22, 2007

I’ve always thought it would be fun to cover a wall in my office with a mural of a tropical sunset, since the likelihood of an actual beach vacation seems less and less likely with my busy work schedule these days. Now, I’ve discovered that I don’t have to be relegated to just one imaginary destination, thanks to this fun device.

Changeable Motion Picture

Hang this remote-controlled picture on your wall, and you can swap between eight different scenic vistas from the comfort of your Aeron chair. Working sort of like those motorized image-flipping ad displays you see in shopping centers these days, the panorama can change between a variety of tranquil locales with a simple press of the remote. It even can play sounds of nature or new-agey music to help set your mind adrift. The box measures in at about 39″(w) x 3″(d) x 19″(h) and hangs easily on your wall.

Sure, it won’t actually give you a tan, but you can always run to the strip mall for one of those, right? While you’re there, you can grab a PiƱa Colada flavored slushie from the Orange Julius. You can get your fake vacation started over at Taylor Gifts for just under $100 bucks.
