Steelcase Wants to Sell you a Walkstation

ScreenshotLooking for a way to get more exercise, despite being a deskbound web worker? Steelcase (makers of high-end office furniture) have an idea for you: the Walkstation. Based on the idea that you can burn enough calories to make a difference, even if you don’t work up a sweat, the Walkstation marries an adjustable-height desk and monitor arm with a low-speed treadmill

There are plenty of other bells and whistles here, including a magnetic sensor that automatically stops the treadmill should you be carried away from your desk, and an optional convertible model that lets you switch from office chair to treadmill at the touch of a button. The drawback? Cost, mainly: buying one of these will set you back $4300 or more. If that’s too rich for your blood, check out how one of our writers made her own.
