The new reclining Altwork Station dazzles everyone after they get to experience it. This reclining chair was developed over the course of five years and is now available to pre-order. The final price will be $5,900 but if you pre-order one now you will get a special price of $3,900. Altwork Station is a reclining chair which also has a desk attached to it. This desk is able to hold a computer monitor and a mouse and keyboard.
One of the best parts of this new invention is that while you are shifting your position in it the monitor and the desk will also pivot with you. In order for your mouse and keyboard to not fall of the desk powerful magnets were placed inside of it which can hold even the heaviest of keyboards in place.
Computer coders seem to be the target audience for this chair since they have to spend long periods of time in front of a PC. But no matter what you do if you have to spend long hours at your PC this chair might suit you.
While the company was creating the Altwork Station their biggest struggle was figuring out how to use as few electronic actuators as possible. They wanted to avoid them since in time they generally cause problems. Initially it was thought that they would need to use at least 12 of them in order to allow a full range of motion. After some brainstorming the design team managed to lower this number to only 4 actuators which are placed in some key spots on the chair itself.
The remote that comes equipped with the reclining chair allows you to customize the experience to whatever you find most comfortable. You can save 4 different positions which will be easily accessible at the click of a button.
People who managed to test out this invention were amazed at how comfortable it actually is to use a mouse and keyboard while fully reclined. The creators even stated that productivity might increase with the help of their new product.
While it is an extraordinary leap in technology the Altwork Station won’t be flying off the shelves anytime soon due to the prohibitive cost. But just like any other type of technology, given enough time it will become more and more cost effective to produce and thus cheaper for the user.
