The Compactix Glyder is an exercise machine that you can use while sitting at your desk. A lot of people these days spend an awful lot of time sitting. There are a few exercise machines out there that can be used under a desk but they often result in bruised knees and loud noises at the office.

The Compactix Glyder however lets you get your desk-bound workout on by gliding your feet horizontally back and forth, using electromagnetic resistance to give you a workout feel that you won't get by simply sliding your feet around the floor with your socks on. The amount of resistance can be controlled using a knob on the machine or set via Bluetooth using the companion smartphone app.

The app also lets you monitor how many calories you burned and how much gliding distance you covered.
