Smart Desk Reminds You To Stand Up When You’ve Been Sitting For Too Long

You may already know that sitting crouched in front of your computer for hours is bad for your health, but that does not mean that you don’t continue to do it.

California-based company Stir has created the “Kinetic Desk” to remind you to get moving after you have been sedentary, which can transform from a sitting desk to a standing desk.

Featuring a built-in touchscreen that allows you to check statistics and set preferences, you can let this smart desk know when you would like to be sitting or standing during the day, and it would remind you to do so at the specific times.

After you have been seated for a while, it would also nudge you to get on your feet by moving slightly up and down—according Stir’s founder JP Labrosse, the Kinetic desk is a “unwearable wearable” that helps you stay healthy by monitoring your daily routine.

It is priced at US$2,990, and is available in black and white—find out more about it on its website.
