Walking on a treadmill is terribly boring. Everyone knows that. That’s probably why most of you aren’t interested in walking on a treadmill. Neuroscientist Bill Softky has come up with a solution for your problem. He knows that guys and girls that love their computers tend to not love getting on the treadmill, but he believes that if you can have your laptop with you, this may change your attitude towards physical exercises. That’s why he designed what he calls the CardioDesk. It’s still in the prototype stage but it’s designed to fit most treadmills and it creates a handy surface that you can place your laptop on while you do your workout.
The CardioDesk folds up to about the size of a book, a one inch thick book. It could easily fit into your laptop bag for easy carrying and the surface allows for your laptop to rest comfortably without worry about it slipping off due to jostling. Obviously it would be a disaster to destroy your computer when you’re trying to get some exercise. Bill is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to turn this into a widespread product and it seems like an ideal solution. There are currently ways to prop your laptop on a treadmill for exercise but they’re almost all exceptionally expensive or highly involved. This is simple and that’s the beauty of it.
There are numerous studies that prove that walking is one of the best things you can do for the health of your heart. It’s not going to get you into great shape, but it can prolong your life, which is a good thing. If you work all day sitting down you’re shortening your life, too. If you get the blood flowing with some good walking then you’ll be much healthier. That’s why the CardioDesk for your laptop is so smart.Tags: laptop stand
