Now if they could only combine this with an inexpensive exercise ball.
anyone else suspend at work?
>Ryan Holmes, founder and CEO of Vancouver’s Hootsuite Media Inc., shares your pain and together with a team of designers he is launching a cardboard, collapsible stand-up desk solution that won’t strain your back or your bank account.
25$ for a cardboard box
>The most important thing about cardboard is that it has allowed us to create a kind of democratizing stand up desk that everybody can afford, both businesses and individuals,” said Suchy. The desks are manufactured near Seattle, in the same factory that makes complicated shoeboxes for Nike Inc.
You do like democracy don't you?
Which this is perfect for? 25 dollars and you can just plop it on your desk for standing time, or put it on the ground and sit at your desk.
Zillion dollar idea: standing desk that also works as a chair? FUND IT.
You still need a desk so why not get a proper adjustable desk that you can set to any height you want to. Yeah they're more expensive than a normal desk but not by that much as long as you don't go for the most expensive models. And they'll prevent broken laptops that get dropped to the floor when that cardboard box fails or gets toppled over.
They make cashiers stand because customers think they're lazy if they see them sit down. Cashiers are one of the most looked-down on professions outside of shit scooper or dick sucker.
> meanwhile, they couldn't remember produce codes or bag groceries quickly and efficiently
Man, I'm glad I'm not a cashier anymore.
