This is the most awesome thing ever! I want a desk job now!

I really do hope these make it past the trial phase and into offices. They are pricey, but they would counteract rising insurance costs due to obesity (that is, if every obese office worker in the U.S. started using one). Sadly, I think it may be a pipe dream

Bleah. I couldn't do that. I can't concentrate on anything else while I'm on the treadmill. If I slowed down enough to be able to concentrate I'd annoy the crap out of myself by how slowly I was going. My exercise has to feel like exercise, KWIM?

They might be great for some people though.

I tried reading when on the treadmill or exercise bike. It doesn;t work for me so I doubt this would either. For those who can do that kind of multi-tasking, more power to them!
