The average work surface is covered in smart devices - laptop, smartphone, tablet, maybe a wearable or two like Fitbit or UP
- but Stir's Kinetic Desk asks could the desk itself be smarter? That's the approach startup Stir
is taking, founded by a former member of Apple's iPod team, and promising great things from its first product, the world's only smart, connected desk. As far away from the average height-adjustable desk as your iPhone is from a rotary phone, the Kinetic Desk not only knows when you're working, it figures out when you should be standing up or sitting down, and gently motions to suggest a change in posture, all controlled by an embedded touchscreen in the hand-finished tabletop itself. We caught up with founder and CEO JP Labrosse to find out more.
