Human plus Hamster plus Wheel

No, I’m not talking about the Richard Gere hamster story (which is actually a gerbil story, but I digress). I’m talking about a human hamster wheel.  Sort of.

Do you like the modern sensibility of a standing desk but wish it also served as a constant reminder of your work life’s soul-crushing drudgery? Well then I’ve got good news.

This 80-inch-diameter Hamster Wheel Standing Desk, invented by two guys (artist Robb Godshaw and developer Will Doenlen) at 3-D software company Autodesk, is questionably necessary in a world where we already have treadmill desks. But it’s also pretty awesome.

The whole project is clearly tongue-in-cheek, as you can tell from the description on Instructables.com, where you’ll also find all the directions to make one yourself.

“Rise up, sedentary sentients, and unleash that untapped potential within by marching endlessly towards a brilliant future of focused work. Step forward into a world of infinite potential, bounded only by the smooth arcs of a wheel. Step forward into the Hamster Wheel Standing Desk that will usher in a new era of unprecedented productivity.”

Wow, this is quirky.

There’s a video at the link, btw.
