Treadmill Desk Lets You Work While You Exercise and Vice Versa

Treadmill Desk

Work can be such a pain. The same goes for exercise. Why someone would want to assemble a contraption that would allow people to do both things simultaneously is beyond me, but maybe there’s a demand for it because the treadmill desk exists. It’s called the TrekDesk and it’s a desk that can be attached to a treadmill so you can walk, job, or run at your desired pace while typing reports, crunching numbers, or doing whatever else you need to do on the desk.

The TrekDesk can be attached to virtually any treadmill and comes with a manuscript holder, a three-level file folder, two cup holders, and a headset stand. That way, there’s a space for most of your stuff so your work area won’t be so cluttered. The desk lets you work hard while you work out, although you probably shouldn’t sign anything while you’re on it because you’ll probably mess your signature up.

The TrekDesk retails for $479.

Treadmill With Virtual Reality Simulates Walking Outside But Without All That Pesky Fresh Air

By Jonathan Kimak

The University of Tsukuba in Japan is creating a treadmill that will help with the rehabilitation of people who have had strokes or other similar illnesses. The immersive dome has a visual range of 270 degrees that will allow the person on the treadmill to feel as if they are in a different environment.

It’s too bad that this is only being developed for use in hospitals as I could see this becoming a hit in the gyms if there were a multitude of environments to choose from. I can think of running alongside marathon runners, or running against olympic athletes or even running through a futuristic society being chased by killer robots as good ideas for this technology.
