Autonomous Desk tells you when to stand and orders your lunch
The new Autonomous Desk acts like your personal trainer and office assistant. It tells you when to stand if you've been sitting for too long and it orders your lunch for you too. Traditional sit-stand desks (which can convert between the two) don't motivate the user to stand. On average, those that use sit-stand desks only stand for two hours per day despite knowing the health risks associated with sitting for most of the day. Autonomous Desk not only motivates you to stand, it trains you to stand for most of the day in slow increments. On the first day, you'll be instructed to stand for 30 minutes in between longer sit-down breaks. From then on, the standing portions will become longer each day. You can also adjust the thermostat and schedule meetings by speaking out loud to the desk, which is currently offered on Kickstarter for $399.
