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.
