Every Animator's Dream Desk

| Anime , Manga

The tablet’s position can also be changed, by popping up when necessary so it can be used on an incline.

The complete set-up is incredibly impressive, with everything on hand to make designing easier.

And when the tablet’s not being used, it’s no longer taking up valuable desk space.

The animator behind the new desk, who goes by the Twitter handle @taqqqro, has worked on a number of projects, including artwork for Japanese fantasy novel series Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri. His idea for the embedded tablet design came after seeing the desk used by animator Yoshikazu Hamada, which is one of the most elaborate constructions we’ve ever seen.

The desk made by @taqqqro cost just ¥40,000 (US$385) to make, with ¥30,000 (US$289) going toward the iron legs for the table. The wood for the desktop was purchased and cut at a DIY home center, while the animator himself cut out the portion for the tablet with a ¥3,000 ($29) electric jigsaw.
