There is nothing healthy about sitting behind a desk all day, but with the Cubii Elliptical you can burn up to 120 calories an hour just by working. The compact elliptical trainer is especially designed to be used at work. It fits comfortably underneath a desk, is quiet so as not to be distracting to others, is portable, and is designed to provide smooth elliptical movement of the legs while keeping the knees away from the underside of the desk and other sharp edges. Though other under-desk ellipticals exist on the market, Cubii is the newest and one of the least expensive, with prices beginning at $320.
The smartphone is one particular device that definitely needs a case of its own, as you can never quite tell as to when disaster is going to strike, but when it comes to choosing the model, it can be quite a headache.

The design of the HandL MAXIMUS is meant to help you reunite with the power of touch, as Allen Hirsch, the artist and inventor of the HandL phone cases shared, “Touching the buttocks is one of the most pleasant tactile and ergonomic experiences.”

Coffee is essential to the work day, but it’s the worst when your morning cup of joe gets cold from sitting too long. Now, you can keep your coffee warm through a simple USB cord. This one is available for around US$10 but there are plenty of versions out there, so be sure to shop around! Needless to say, it can also heat some other drinks and food in no time (looking at you tea drinkers!)

As soon as a compatible smartphone is placed in the cradle, the Vü will instantly begin charging.

Essentially a weird-looking, kitchen-centric Amazon Echo with a projector (it’s a Magic 8-Ball for the 21st century), the Egg not only looks up receipes you ask for, but projects step-by-step videos to help you make them. There’s a similar concept assistant from Bosch, but it’s not nearly as goofy looking, which is part of Hello Egg’s charm. If it rolls its eye at my cooking skills, though, it’s gonna end up scrambled.
