This $5,900 Desk Let’s You Work On Your Computer Lying Down

1

Forget standing desks, because the latest revolution is working lying down.

A back injury suffered by Altwork co-founder John Speicher prevented him from working at a computer, but it also gave him the idea for this awesome invention.

Designed in Sonoma Valley, California, the Altwork station allows you to work in four different positions, from standing to lying down, the latter made possible by magnets. Altwork’s broader goal is to modernize how we work.

“We aren’t trying for a general purpose desk,” Altwork cofounder and CEO Che Voigt told Wired. “This is designed for people whose job is to operate a computer. We are looking at CAD engineers, financial traders, animators, technical writers.”

“I feel like the high-intensity computer user is undervalued. Those are the people who, if their project gets done a little bit sooner, that’s a big deal.”

There are those who go to the movies or download films, those who eat their watermelon with or without pips, those who read books or ebooks, those who use the loudspeaker on their mobile or the earpiece, those who loved the latest trailer of Star Wars or those who didn’t.

1968: Elton John’s First Photo Shoot

1

Reginald Kenneth Dwight was born in 1947 in Pinner, a neighborhood in Greater London. By the age of three, Dwight was playing the piano. He showed an uncanny aptitude for music, and was soon taking formal lessons. At 11, he was admitted to the Royal Academy of Music on a scholarship.

As a teenager, when Dwight wasn’t busy working for a music publishing company, he played piano in a pub and formed a band with friends, including saxophonist Elton Dean, called Bluesology. They became Long John Baldry’s supporting band.

“I think performers are all show-offs anyway, especially musicians. Unless you show off, you’re not going to get noticed.” – Elton John.

In 1967, Dwight started collaborating with songwriter Bernie Taupin. In homage to Elton Dean and Long John Baldry, he started going by the name Elton John.

In 1968, he posed for one of his first publicity photo shoots, debuting the flashy presence that would soon make him one of the biggest music stars in the world.
