The past decade has seen a rise in sit to stand desks. A California startup called Altwork wants to take your working habit to the final frontier: lying down. The Altwork Station has lots of motorized and mechanical moving parts that let you work in practically any position you want.
The high-tech workstation has built-in controls for the motorized parts, and you can save presets for future use. The monitor mounting arm is compatible with VESA mounts and supports up 35lb. monitor setups. Finally, the desk has magnets embedded in it. Altwork will include small magnets for your keyboard and mouse so they’ll stick to the desk at all times.
Here’s a brief demo from CNN Money:
Here’s another one from Ars Technica. This one gives you a better idea of how the chair’s moving parts work. They’re a bit jerky and stiff, but unless you’re restless you’ll only change its form every few hours so it might not be that big of a deal.
What is a big deal is its price. The Altwork Station will sell for $5,900 (USD) each when it launches in 2016, though you can reserve one right now for $3,900.
