The Opposite of the Standing Desk

Recently I’ve blogged several times about my standing desk, which has been a huge asset for my Kickstarter campaign, which entails 14-16 hours of computer work a day.

However, today I saw a post on Facebook from my friend Adam about something that’s even more amazing than a standing desk–a lying-down desk! Check it out:


The article on Mashable isn’t just a puff piece–the author actually tried out the desk and spoke to its merits. I can totally see how it would alleviate the physical stress of hunching over your keyboard. And I do some of my best thinking lying down.

BUT–this is a big but–I’m 100% positive I would fall asleep at this desk. That’s the caveat to the times why I lie down for a minute to process some ideas–I process for a few minutes, and before I know it, Biddy is sitting on me and I’m waking up from a 40-minute nap. This desk would have the same effect.

However, as ridiculous as it looks, I applaud the idea, and it might be awesome for those who are willing to dish out $4k for it. What do you think?
