The Altwork Station may look like a dentist’s chair, but it’s actually a programmer’s dream workstation. It allows users work in just about any position – including lying down.

Altwork, a Sonoma Valley, California-based startup company, says this chair and desk combo is designed for “high-intensity” computer users, with an intense $5,900 price tag to match (although the first run will be available at a discounted $3,900. Bargain!).

The station comes has four different modes: standing, collaboration (the screen can be turned multiple directions) regular, and focus (reclined). The company believes, through research and data regarding health benefits, that we need to move and change positions throughout the day. For professionals who are glued to a computer screen most of the day, this desk can afford the ability to stretch and move while continuing to work.

The control panel is located right on the desk, and magnets help keep the desktop peripherals in place while in the reclined setting. A lot of engineering went into this thing, something that is evident in the leg rest that folds under itself—much like a scorpion tail.

Check out more photos of the Altwork Station station along with a demo video after the break.

Greek design company Studio NL has developed a “Nap Desk” that marries a conventional desk with a bed. The design also allows the work surface to slide out so a colleague can continue working if necessary.

The question is would the Nap Desk increase productivity because the employee is well rested, or would the constant temptation to take a nap be like keeping a bowl of candy at your desk when you’re on a diet?

Oh yeah, rubber band wars at the office got a level up with this 3D printed rubber band sentry gun. Forget the old days of finger flicking rubber ordinance at your cubicle foe. This gun, created by 20-year-old Kevin Thomas of Switzerland, is constructed from 3D printed parts, an Arduino Mega and servo-motors to control motion. It can find targets and fire upon them automatically using software from Project Sentry Gun.

His final gun design, which was first inspired by the Automatic Rubber Band Blaster, is available for download on Thingiverse. So now you can defend your cubicle while on an away mission to the breakroom.

Check out more images and video demo after the break.

While we live in a digital world, there are times we still need to use paper. For those times, why would you use a boring paper clip when you could use these Star Trek paper clips shaped like The Enterprise and a Starfleet Insignia?

These Star Trek themed clips come in a cool little tin and you get 20 silver-colored NCC-1701 clips and 20 gold-colored Delta Shield clips.

Okay, considering they’re more limited than usual paper clips, maybe just use them on official Starfleet TPS reports.

Real hoverboards are still a work in progress, but that doesn’t mean you can’t own one. This is just a really small version. ThinkGeek has a new Back to the Future Desktop Hoverboard that frictionlessly floats thanks to five high-grade rare earth magnets.

You can even give it a push and watch it go back and forth. It’s kind of like a BTTF version of a Newton’s Cradle. I got mesmerized just watching the gif.

The 2 lb globes measure 4.5″in diameter and feature clear acrylic outer shells. Hit the jump to see more.
