The 'Walkstation' is too much work

A workstation attached to a treadmill doesn't sound like good idea to us.

Steelcase

Following unusual workstations has become something of a hobby for Crave (we don't get out much), but usually they involve conditions that are designed for maximum comfort . So one can appreciate our alarm upon viewing the "Walkstation" for its obvious threat to our stated pursuit of laziness , even while working .

This tortuous apparatus is essentially a standing-height desk attached to a treadmill, combining work with exercise for the ultimate in multi-tasking. Made by office furniture company Steelcase, the Walkstation is scheduled to make its formal debut next month for a reported price of $6,500. (That would pay for a lot of time at the gym, not to mention doughnuts.)

While clearly not our cup of tea, we know more than a few people who would love to have one. The alpha executives, in particular, could use them to prove their superiority over lesser simians .
