The lab doesn't look messy to me, it simply looks jam packed. Wires, cables, etc are not bundled up, making their access and debugging easy and adding flexibility. However, I'm guessing that there is a lot of old "junk" in those cabinets in the background...
A messy lab like that means job security. Who would be able to make heads or tails out of it that is not intimately familiar with "the layout". (I am joking and agree that a messy desk or lab usually means a lot is going on).
Very interesting stuff. Thanks for sharing the views.
Agree. A messy lab means real work is being done. Always question a clean engineering desk. If the research in room temperature levitation properties helps us get flying cars, then I'm all for keeping the lab as messy as possible.
