May I have your attention please!
Will the real iDeskoid Robotic PC please stand up
I don't think we gonna have a problem here.

Is it a robot?
Is it a PC?
Is it a desk?

Why can't a product be all three of the above?
Consequentially, it is also a universal docking station for camera, phone , iPod and who knows what else?
From a PC case stand point, this unique double-box sandwich design provides easy access to all the PC/robotic peripherals and parts that will integral part of this robotic furniture. The upper table box(off-yellowish) is no ordinary table top. Various gears such as monitor, speakers and input devices can be dock or snap-on securely on to it from all sides. The lower base-box(red) encloses those components use less or indirectly by the user. This division of labor between two decks also makes troubleshooting a bit easier. For example, Firewire and USB 2.0 hub should be on the top. Motherboard, CPU, power supply, primary system HD and mobility related gears/wheels goes to the bottom. An optional secondary user data storage in the form of external hard disk enclosure can be place on top. Now, PC related problems can be catergorized into upper deck problem or lower deck prolems. The days of wheel-less single-box PC case design are numbered.

That is the benefit of the next generation all-in-one double decker design. PC peripherals of various kind just snapped-on to the specially designed apertures of different sizes on the upper table-deck.
