This is So Cool…

I saw the coolest thing on the NY Times site today. It's a desk that's meant to be used while standing that has a treadmill underneath. The idea is you let the treadmill run all day at the leisurely pace of 1.5 miles per hour. By my estimate of when I used to live in New York, that's about about half the speed of a New Yorker walking to work.

This apparently burns about 150 calories an hour, so over seven hours at your desk that's close to burning 1,000 calories a day. The average person would lose two pounds a week by doing this.  It's a pretty unique product (which incidentally is a big secret to word of mouth marketing… offer something very unique.)

Take a look at the photo yourself.  Here's the article:
