Here's DIYer Tak who took an IKEA product and made it more useful. He turned it into a completely hideable workspace with a desktop computer inside!
IKEA's Vika Veine is a very cool desk on its own: it basically opens up to reveal your workspace. It comes with a felt lined inside that can be used as a bulletin board and comes with pockets for your things. Here's how Tak did it:
