The floor around the "Dog Robot" looks pretty clean to me. I'm impressed.

One of my favorite messy desks was the one in Jurassic Park, owned by the enginneer played by Wayne Knight (Newman from Sienfeld). The added attraction on his desk was half-eaten food.

Most Organized Engineering Desktops

Maybe we should be asking readers for photos of the most impressive engineering desktops (not their own) in their companies.  We have all seen the engineer with piles of equipment and papers everywhere; it's all too common.  We can probably learn more and get new ideas from the opposite approach.  In fact, are there ANY engineers who have desktops that could be mistaken for an accountant or business executive out there?

I have to agree with Al Sledge's wife about whatever expletive she choose to describe his work area. I'm glad none of those cluttered creations reside in my house or my office space. Beyond all the mess, however, I was intrigued by that FiFo dog robot ... what is that all about?
