But what is this hand doing on your desk? This may be the question you will be asked if you buy this curious object which has just been launched by Ikea in China. This wooden hand costs 129 yuan, or about 16 euros. It has articulated fingers, which allows it to hold many things, such as your headphones or cables. In short, it allows you to have your accessories close … at hand.
It is one of the new ranges of accessories launched by Ikea, which is aimed particularly at PC gamers. The 30 new products are divided into six families: Huvudspelare (chairs), Utespelare (chairs), Matchspel (chairs), Gruppspel, Uppspel (tables, drawers) and Lånespelare (lamps, cup holders, accessory holders, cushions, carpet mouse).
The Uppspel range was designed in partnership with the ROG (Republic Of Gamers) division of Asus. An office costs 3,799 yuan, or about 485 euros.
In the Lånespelare range, Ikea offers a multifunctional cushion (around 19 euros) which can also serve as a blanket for chilly players.
Products for gamers have been available in China since the end of January. They will be launched in Japan in May, then in the rest of the world from October.
