StandDesk is an affordable option for those who want a versatile desk for working

As we have recently witnessed here on Gizmag, there's a new push underway to make standing desks more affordable.

The latest piece of furniture to fit this mold is StandDesk, which is not only relatively affordable but also adjustable between heights suitable for sitting and standing. It offers users the best of both worlds.  Read More

We have previously covered several innovative standing desks here at Gizmag, such as the XTable and UpWrite. These have all required starting from scratch, which is usually a costly endeavor.

Dupe is a portable machine that uses a mixture of sand, bacteria and urine to create a material called biostone.

It's generally only when its time to pack up and move house that the typical homeowner encounters large quantities of cardboard. In bicycle helmets and vacuum cleaners, however, we have seen some innovative applications for the material beyond its use as lightweight and durable packaging. Karton, a cardboard furniture company offering everything from beds to room dividers, takes a similar approach, yet aims to go beyond the novel and make its paper constructions a charming and practical part of your living solution.  Read More

The markerless AR system from Cimagine Media

When you want to augment a digital image creation onto the real world, you'll likely need to point your smart device's camera at the kind of markers found in Sony's TV Size Guide tool or on the front cover of magazines like Esquire. IKEA took this idea a step further by making its 2014 catalog the marker, but a new system from Israel's Cimagine Media uses a tablet or smartphone camera and sensors to position the virtual object in a room without the need for physical markers.  Read More
