Altwork Station
The revolutionary alternative work station lets you lie down while you work.

The California-based company, Altwork, engineered and recently introduced the Altwork Station - a moving, robot desk which lets you work standing, sitting or lying down, according to International Business Times.

The startup created an adjustable chair that combines a seat, desk and monitor stand into one electronically controlled work station, reported Ars Technica. It took five years and over $1 million in engineering to create a new work space that is comfortable, productive and healthy, according to Altwork.

Users can program the Altwork Station to remember the exact preferred positions, Ars Technica noted. At the press of a button, the chair can recline or sit upright and the monitor swings around to show others what you're working on. You can also stand up or pace around the station while talking on the phone.

The California startup designed the Station for extensive computer users, such as software developers, writers or animators, according to PC Magazine.

"We designed the Altwork Station as a tool for professionals who use a computer all day," CEO Che Voigt said. "The Altwork Station allows the people who are developing and designing our future to seamlessly sit, stand, collaborate, and focus at the push of a button, so they can work smarter and more efficiently."

Altwork offers pre-orders on its website, which will help to finance production of the first workstation designed for high-intensity computer users.

The Station is available at the pre-order price of $3,900, reported PC Magazine. It will cost $5,900 when the company begins shipping to U.S. customers in 2016.
