Walking while working on the computer is possible with Xiaomi Urevo U1 Smart Walking Pad and the ACGAM desk electronically adjustable in height. On Geekbuying you can find the treadmill at € 240.70 and – if you want – also with the desk in a bundle at € 480.50.
Working long hours on the PC can be very damaging to your body, especially if you maintain an incorrect posture all the time without taking breaks to stretch your legs a little. Linus Torvalds had the idea of optimizing the time available while simultaneously carrying out office work and physical activity.
In a nice video from a few years ago, in fact, you can see the “zombie shuffling desk” built “in house” by the Linux founder with a treadmill under a rather high desk. The bizarre name derives from the slowness of the walk, specially adjusted to allow you to use the keyboard and mouse without problems. The video, which is now almost 5 years old, must not have gone unnoticed so much as to inspire some producers, such as Xiaomi, which also offers an electric desk bundled with its new treadmill.
Xiaomi Urevo U1
Urevo U1 is characterized by a thickness of only 6.5 cm and a weight of just 25 kg and is suitable for people aged between 14 and 60 years under 90 kg in weight. The compact size and small wheels make it easy to move, allowing you to store it under the bed or sofa without difficulty. The remote control allows you to remotely adjust the pace on three different modes: Walking, Speed Walking and Running Mode, from 0.8 up to 6km / h.
Thanks to the particular structure that consists of five layers (PVC, NBR, PET, PVC and PET) and simulates the characteristics of an athletics track, the walk is comfortable and the noise is kept low (<62dB). From the HD LED display you can monitor calories burned, distance traveled and time, to always have the results of your activity under control. You can buy Xiaomi Urevo U1 Smart Walking Pad on Geekbuying for only 240.70 € (coupon: 11SALE202) with EU shipping, on offer for Singles’ Day.
Although the ACGAM desk does not have a top, this allows those who buy it to customize it according to their needs, combining one that has a length between 120 and 180 centimeters and a width between 60 and 80 centimeters. As for the height, however, it is possible to go from 70 to 115 centimeters and use the desk both when you are normally sitting and standing on your treadmill. Just use the supplied keypad, which can be fixed to the table and allows you to view the selected height on the small display.
