This is a wall-mounted computer desk. You can program it to raise itself every 45 minutes or so, in order to make you stand up for a few minutes.

We could even add a treadmill ("conveyor-belt workout machine").

I don't know much about the engineering here, but I'm sure someone can work it out.

       would be awfully hard on those who fall asleep with their feet on the desk....to be drug along a conveyor belt while your feet caught up where your neck should be...

       This is kinda good in an 'I could really do with one of these' sort of way and kinda bad in a 'now you can be working even while stretching your legs' sort of a way.   

       [gusta] - Congratulations on your first idea, how come it took you four years?

       The desk was programed to drop back into place every four years.

       Bravo. I was just thinking I should probably get up and stretch a bit. With your desk invention I wouldn't even need to think about it...it would just happen.

       Whether you wanted it too or not.   

       Can you imagine this in a meeting?   

       EDIT: What am I thinking? Of course you can.
