There are always unexpected obstacles and mini disasters that take place in the office, but the Desktop Tornado helps keep things in perspective. It is a playful reminder that things can be much worse out in the big bad world. Not to mention that in the workplace, much of these problems can be contained and managed. Even a swirling Desktop Tornado.

Available online at Hammacher Schlemmer, the Desktop Tornado is essentially a modern-day lava lamp. Of course, it comes with a much heftier price tag ($300). According to the website, "A built-in atomizer turns water into a cloud of mist while a fan in the base creates the updraft. Six circulation manifolds generate convergence and rotation, creating a rapidly spinning vertical column of air."
