Anyone who knows me knows I struggle with the one downside of my job: having to sit down all day. I’ve tried a few things to switch to a standing work station: a stack of books with my laptop teetering dangerously on top. I’ve brought in a tiny, circular tall bistro table in one corner of my room just so I can move my laptop on top of it and stand for awhile. None of these were very convenient. None of these were very attractive or modern.
We’re excited for a modern solution in the form of the Staand Up Desk, which offers up slim modern stands that you can place on top of your existing desk to give your work and your health a leg (stand) up. If you’ve got a desktop and keyboard you’d get two of them, one lower than the other, and you can move them around at your leisure. I think it would work with a laptop, too. Really the thought of something you could just put down under the desk when you want to sit back down is something nice. You can find more info on IndieGoGo or on their website.
