At G4G we have featured several different kinds of desks in the past year. They have ranged from run of the mill standing desks to “smart” desks that interact with different devices or have their own operating system. One of the quickest and easiest ways to transform a work space is to change the stations people work at (like their desks). The worst part of a job that requires you to sit in front of a computer for eight hours and have very little activity which equals larger waist lines and less impressed wives. What can we do to make ourselves not be a slug in front of a computer? Turn your work day into a work out and track calories all the way through the day.
The Stir Kinetic Desk is one of the cooler desks we have seen in a long time. Not only is it a hybrid sit or stand desk, it actually keeps your body moving throughout the day. You can set your desired standing height along with the correct sitting height and then Kinetic takes over from there. It can sense when you’re at the desk and will start to rise and sit throughout the day which keeps your body active. You can control it yourself and decide whether it stands or sits but if you don’t trust yourself to make sure you actually stand, there is an active option too. When you have the desk on active option it will rise and sit on it’s own. Since people are driven by results, so the Stir Kinetic Desk will actually track calories burned and show you the daily end result. The other part we didn’t speak enough to was the amazing look and design of the Stir Kinetic Desk. Kinetic hasn’t said when these will begin to ship or the price attached to each one but hopefully it’s reasonable. We would love to snag one of these for the office.
