Inspired by the award winning l3p d3sk case mod, Cross is now available for pre-order
From smartphones to smart TVs, convergence is everywhere. Often, it can even be found in places where we least expect it. Take Red Harbinger’s Cross Desk, for instance. It’s a desk and a PC case rolled into one.
Inspired by the l3p d3sk case mod that we covered here a couple of years ago, the Cross Desk has been designed and developed by Red Harbinger, a small outfit that has on board, as its Director of Design, l3p d3sk sire Peter Brands. Red Harbinger was, in fact, conceived with the sole aim of commercializing the Dutchman’s creation.
“Our goal with Cross was to bring to market the most ultimate and all-encompassing PC case ever created,” reads a page on the Red Harbinger website. “The desk itself doubles as the case and completely integrates all hardware, liquid and air cooling systems, lighting systems, and pretty much anything else that you may want to throw at it.”
PC enthusiasts from Australia, North America and Europe can now pre-order the Cross Desk from the company’s online store and have it delivered to them on November 15. And if they act fast enough, they can snag the Cross for $1,699 instead of the usual $1,999. That’s not all, as Red Harbinger is also offering a number of other goodies with each order: “shelving and headset mount accessories, a limited edition case badge, a certificate of ownership signed by the Red Harbinger team, limited edition artwork of La Croix (the Cross Desk mascot), and tons of perks around the Red Harbinger forums and website at no additional charge.”
