Work yourself fit

I've often wondered where the gym with which CNET Networks UK has a membership deal is located. People head off looking purposeful, and return looking knackered — it's never appealed, really.

I've often wondered where the gym with which CNET Networks UK has a membership deal is located. People head off looking purposeful, and return looking knackered — it's never appealed, really. Now, if US company Steelcase gets its way, the gym, or something that looks like it, might make a disturbing appearance right here in the office.

Enter the Walkstation, which is basically a treadmill with a desk attached.

Reassuringly, the Walkstation's inventor, one Dr James Levine, claims "its purpose is not to cause users to raise their heart rates or work up a sweat" — just as well, as an approaching deadline does that quite nicely.

Now if this contraption could be wired up to generate electricity, it could be a handy addition to the 'green' office. Perhaps it could directly power the computer on the desk: stop walking, computer dies, no work done, no job...no, let's not go there.

The picture speaks for itself really, but if readers fancy coming up with captions, be my guest!
