Now you just need to put these in planes - then you can exercise as you work and view ads

Another one from Truemors:

Treadmill desks could make fitting in regular exercise around office hours a lot easier. These innovative vertical desks are personalised to fit the needs of individual users, [and] cost half the price of the usual cubicle desks....

But you have to walk very slowly:

Dr. James Levine of the Mayo Clinic came up with the idea of a "Treadmill Desk". The idea is to slowly walk on a treadmill while working at a desk built around the treadmill...a Treadmill Desk.

Dr Levine's research revealed that on the average his subjects burned 100 calories more every hour while walking slowly -- at 1 mile per hour -- than while sitting in a chair.

Dr. Levine believes that if individuals were to replace time spent sitting at the computer with walking computer time by 2 to 3 hours a day, and if other components of energy balance were constant, a weight loss of 45 to 66 pounds a year could occur.
