Kinetic Desks: Smart furniture is coming to your home

Everything is getting smart these days: smart phones, smart watches, smart refrigerators. The trend is a concept called the Internet of Everything, in which all manner of heretofore normal items are becoming digitally interconnected. The Stir Kinetic Desk is a good example. At the touch of a button, the desk raises and lowers on hydraulic legs so you can work while sitting or standing. Moreover, it also has a computer touch screen that senses when you arrive, tracks your standing time, and graphs the calories you've burned. It is WiFi and Bluetooth enabled and can connect with your mobile devices. In active mode, the desk almost imperceptibly moves up and down slightly, encouraging you to change your stance and posture to keep you energized, fit and productive.
