Road warriors offered office in a suitcase

Crazy case contains printer, laptop stand, power

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Travelling salespeople have a hard time, often working from their car, without enough space for laptop, let alone use of a printer. But now all their problems have been solved - with one suitcase.

Forget living out of a suitcase, because you’ll literally be working out of one.

The Go Pro Mobile Office has an “articulating laptop arm” inside that provides a notebook-sized table, allowing car-based workers to get some work done when they’re sat in the front seat.

A “medium sized” inkjet printer also sits underneath the laptop arm, and the whole case is powered by a 400W internal power convertor that plugs into the car's ciggie lighter.

Case closed

The suitcase is available in four snazzy colours, including yellow, and has a external retracting handle so you can roll the closed case along.

The Go Pro Mobile Office is available now online from Go Pro Mobile Technologies, priced at $480 (£265/€330). A printer’s included, but a laptop’s not.
