Work-a-holics who have sacrificed their exercise for work, meet your new best friend, the TreadDesk. This desk allows you to push the necessary paperwork without sacrificing your well-being, your waistline and your schedule. This desk was designed with the busy executive and worker in mind -- you can return calls with ease and crunch numbers while ridding yourself of those pesky calories.

The "tread" portion of the TreadDesk comes with a control panel to be placed on your desk; this controls the distance, time, speed and tally of calories your oh-so-productive self have burned. The treadmill portion of this system sells for $840 and if you want to go all out and purchase the adjustable desk, the grand total is $2,500.00. This interesting invention aims to "provide office workers the opportunity to walk while they work."
