The work day never stops in our 24-hour world and for those who want to build a palace of productivity in their own home, the proper desk can go a long way to creating an efficient—and, dare we say, enjoyable—home office environment.
Below is the latest in desk technology.
The workstation to end all workstations, the Cemtrex SmartDesk is a height-adjustable, tri-screened smart table that will keep you ensconced in your work environment, while providing you with a host of useful, smart features. With 72 inches of touchscreen spread across three monitors, the Cemtrex SmartDesk offers users a massive amount of workspace that can be easily configured, with a few simple taps, to switch or split documents and applications across screens. Built in to the tabletop is a keyboard, a wireless charging pad for smart devices, a scanner and wireless earbuds, which users can employ for video conferencing, phone calls (yes, you can place calls from the Cemtrex) or simply enjoying audio. But the desk’s most futuristic feature is its gesture-control system. Via a series of simple hand motions, Cemtrex users can scroll, turn pages, zoom, take screenshots and more—without ever making contact with a mouse or monitor. All this and the desk only comes with one cord, liberating owners from a life of entanglement.
One persistent issue that faces anyone who clocks significant hours working at a desk is the protracted time spent sedentary—a silent, yet serious health concern which accumulates over time. One solution to the scourge of extended sitting is the standing or adjustable-height desk, but remembering to take advantage of the healthy feature can be tricky for those focused on the task at hand. The Stir Kinetic Desk is here to help. Featuring an inlaid touchscreen control in the tabletop that enables users to select from a variety of preset heights, the Stir Kinetic Desk makes switching between sitting and standing as simple as a swipe and a tap. The brainy workbench has a number of features to keep users moving in an intuitive and polite manner. The Stir’s Whisperbreath feature syncs with the resting, human breath rate and will gently raise or lower itself an inch whenever it is time for the user to change positions. The subtle change doesn’t disrupt workflow but feeds a healthier work style. The Wi-Fi and Cloud-connected desk can easily switch between different users’ presets and uses its connectivity to learn about the sitting/standing habits of its various users. After about 20 days of use, the Stir can tailor a specific sitting and standing routine to an individual user to help them achieve their health goals—and of course, everything can be tracked in the accompanying Stir Analytics app.Why limit your workspace to just sitting or standing? Altwork hopes to revolutionize how we look at desk-based labor. Resembling the lovechild of a La-Z-Boy and a starship command center, the Altwork Station offers endless configurations for making the most of your workday.
Altwork focuses on four key positions: Sitting, Standing, Collaborate (configuration that prizes screen presentation) and Focus (a reclining-based position where the Altwork really separates itself from the pack). In the Focus position, the Altwork offers an unparalleled level of support, configuring itself seamlessly to conform your mouse, monitor desk and keyboard to your body—and not the other way around. The Focus position offers a wide array of reclining-base iterations—including zero gravity—with the goal of giving users the ability to fully focus on longer-form tasks without discomfort or distraction. Altwork owners can easily transition through its many different configurations via a push-button remote, in-laid on the desktop.
