Since originating in New Zealand in 2009, the sport of trike drifting has slowly but surely spread to hilly regions all around the globe.

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. Prices north of US$1,000 mean standing desks haven't been available to mainstream consumers, but prices between $100 and $500 make them a more palatable option for the general public. 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
