Altwork Reclining Desk Ushers In Our Dystopian Future
The Altwork Station allows you to use a computer comfortably while reclining, for "working."By Matt Picht | October 28, 2015
Don't be alarmed, these are not the dentist chairs of your nightmares. What you're watching is one company's attempt to disrupt the humble work desk.
California startup Altwork is pulling back the curtain on its high-tech workstation, which will "physically conform to the needs of humans in the workplace." Translation: You get to recline and lie down while working.
The desk comes with four different modes: standing, sitting, a collaborative mode, which lets you rotate the screen, and so-called "focus" mode, which lets you recline. Magnets keep the keyboard and mouse anchored to the desk, and we're sure the desk is strong enough to keep your monitor from falling on your face.
