Why do we information workers have to sit all day? Sitting during conference calls, sitting during meetings, sitting and typing, why, why, why? Couldn't I stand for a while? How about chatting while walking, would that be acceptable?
Dr. James Levine at the Mayo Clinic's NEAT Lab asked these same questions, and came up with a great answer. A treadmill for your office. Check out the USAtoday article and the article on Squidoo. This is such a great idea.
Now wouldn't it be great to combine this idea and a SunRay? Then you could be walking on your treadmill, or strolling through a hall way and when you needed to work or type, just plug in your badge and have your computer session up and running. That would be totally slick.
Now how do I convince Sun that I should have one of these in my office? I'll have to start with my boss.
