The Aspirus is a desktop workstation that is an interesting improvement on the standing desk, which has been growing in popularity. This contraption can be raised or lowered at the press of a button. However, its unique selling point is the fact that it can be paired up with a smartphone to allow you to set goals and reminders. This allows you to stay on top of how long you've been sitting or standing, and change up your position accordingly.

The desk is even fitted with a special onboard sensor that takes into account the time you might have spent away from the desk, to make sure that doesn't mess up its calculations.

Companion apps for the Aspirus will be available for both the iOS and Android platforms. This means that smartphone users of all stripes can improve their health and posture while working.
