The traditional static desk is going to be replaced by desks that are kinetic and haptic. Add a walking treadmill under this desk and you have the perfect fit-smart office. This futuristic desk moves up and down throughout the day and softly reminds you to stand using a system called Whisperbreath. Check out the video below.
According to the Stirworks website: “The Stir Kinetic Desk is smart — it’s driven by software that you access through a touchscreen. It learns your patterns, remembers your preferences, and lets you know if you’re not moving enough. It’s also well designed: cords can be plugged in up top and don’t get in your way. Our surveys indicate that less than 30% of other sit/stand workstations successfully engage their owners and deliver the full health and wellness benefits of sitting less. They are either too hard to use, disrupt other worktop equipment, or simply get left in one position for too long because you’re thinking about something else.”

The way we work in the near future will be radically altered by standing, kinetic and treadmill style desks. This “kinetic office” of the future may include haptic chairs, floor, and walls. Imagine an office that moves with you as you go about you work day. Imagine a smart screen on your desk with haptic touch so you can feel the texture of what you are viewing. This is the future!
