Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Aug 14, 2015

144-08-14-15 ERGO: Autonomous Desk
Hey there!  Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
So much of our daily lives are now spent staring at screens--alternating from the screens of our smartphones, tablets, computers, etc.  And because of this, it is imperative for our health that we maintain ergonomic postures.  The Autonomous Desk is one way to obtain an ergonomic posture.  

The Autonomous Desk is "The smartest office desk yet and is powered by Artificial Intelligence."  Within a few days, the Desk learns your routine and starts moving from the sitting to standing position to keep you more active and healthier while you work.  You can also talk to the desk like a person, helping you be more productive at work.  The desk has already been funded on Indiegogo and will be shipping soon.  
Go to for more details on this connected desk.
