Sitting, standing, transforming, treadmill... the past few years have seen a lot of desk adaptations, but at least one office has embraced running in one spot.
Now a user of the instructions sharing site Instructables, Robb Godshaw, has posted pictures and instructions on how to build an impressing hamster-wheel standing desk.
Godshaw, who is the “Artist in Residence” at Autodesk's Pier 9, a fabrication facility in San Francisco, worked with his colleagues to create 80-inch diameter wheel with a 24-inch-wide base. The wheel moves thanks to four skateboard wheels underneath. A preexisting standing desk was fitted inside the wheel.
One thing the wheel is missing? Brakes. They were suggested, but Godshaw and his team decided to make users have to walk non-stop on the wheel.
If Godshaw and his team are taking requests we’d like to see a swimming desk next.
