Stir Kinetic Desk May Change The Way You Work Forever
Some of the best ideas for new technology are sparked by a desire to improve a common household item, and that’s just what inspired the development of the Kinetic Desk by Stir. Most people are not in love with office desks, but few consider there to be any alternatives to the basic structure of a sitting desk besides a static standing desk. But the Kinetic Desk by Stir wants to be both of these—a smart desk that adjusts its height to transform from a standard sitting desk to a standing desk whenever you need a change.
True Innovation Changes Everything Without Overcomplicating
The Kinetic Desk might be the most revolutionary thing to happen to the modern workspace in year, but it’s not bogged down with confusing gizmos and controls. In fact, there is one touchscreen on the desk that can be used for all of its controls, which are quite simple.
Double tapping on the basic touchscreen on the left end of the desk’s surface allows you to adjust the height or set a time limit for how long you want to work standing versus sitting. A built-in thermal sensor tells the desk when you’ve approached it and allow the desk will track how long you usually work standing or sitting before requiring a change of height.
The desk also tracks how many calories you’ve burned from the time you spend standing instead of sitting, encouraging a healthier lifestyle and more time on your feet. Plus, the desk may eventually be able to sync with fitness apps and devices like the Fitbit. Not to mention the Kinetic Desk is equipped with WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities.
The beauty and simplicity of Kinetic Desk seems consistent with what we might expect from a former Apple employee—which Stir’s founder was years ago when he worked on the first generation iPods.
