YoUP is a standing desk that's surely more convenient than any of its competitors. With research continually showing that sitting for extended periods of time can have short- and long-term health impacts, standing desks have gained popularity in offices around the world. The inexpensive device is an inflatable and portable, turning any surface into a standing desk.

At about the size of a typical laptop case when deflated, YoUP can easily fit into most backpacks or purses. To inflate it, consumers simply unzip the casing, pull the two sides apart manually, then either blow into it or use the supplied air pump. With a total height of approximately 12 inches depending on the model, consumers can place their laptops on top of YoUP to turn their workspace into a standing desk.
