I'm a motion graphics designer working in a shared workspace in Brooklyn that came equipped with beautiful seat height desks made by interior design wizard Kenyan.
Thankfully the desks were made out of standard steel plumbing piping (and beautiful salvage wood) so all I had to do was head to Chinatown and grab some lengthier piping and $24 later... voila. Well, it was actually $30 and 2 Chinatown plumbing supply adventures because the first time I got the height wrong... oops.
Then I got this floor mat. Kinda pricey, but they have an insane selection and the little raised balls massage my feet and are supposed to energize me... I find working in socks has been ideal.
It's been a good month, super productive, feeling good... I find putting on some good music and dancing around tends to help with the aches and pains of standing. I also work with a Wacom Cintiq (that's what I'm drawing on in the photo) and standing has been awesome for that, I always felt kind of awkward working at the Cintiq while seated.
I just bought a stool at a flea market that I was super excited about but ended up being too short... but I lucked out again and found a nearby metal shop that is currently welding leg extensions to the stool.
Overall it's been a relatively cheap and easy transition and I've been really blown away by the ease of finding all these parts and having things fixed up and what not... I've got that special DIY feeling you get when something comes together... or I guess more of a DIWTHOLE (Do It With The Help Of Local Experts) feeling... does that count?
Every dollar that the Trump administration takes away from Planned Parenthood in Maryland will be replaced by state funds (about $2.7M), which will save about $6 for every dollar it puts in, because when women are in charge of their own fertility, they don’t end up raising kids they can’t afford.
Hainan Island will be designated a special economic zone for “medical tourism,” where foreigners will be able to fly to get cheap health care (similar to how offshore entities can go to Guandong Province to have cheap electronics manufactured)>
The Miele PG 8528 is a “washer-disinfector” intended for hospitals and other locations with potentially dangerous pathogens on their dirty dishes; it’s networked and smart. And dumb.
Yeah, Bluetooth audio is pretty common these days, so why should you care about these earbuds? Look how happy that woman up above looks. She’s got FRESHeBUDS in. Boom. There’s your reason. She’s also at the beach and it appears to be a very nice day.But for the sake of promotion, wireless earbuds are fast becoming the […]
“Gets stuff done,” is a good way to be described by anybody. Especially by coworkers or bosses. Because whether you’re in finance or a children’s librarian, stuff needs to get done. But how do you make sure stuff gets done? You definitely can’t do all the stuff yourself, unless your company/organization/government office consists entirely of you. And […]
Even the most expensive pair of hi-fi headphones can’t match the feeling of bass rumbling through your body at a live show. That’s why music aficionados designed The Basslet, an accessory that reproduces that sensation from your wrist. Does it make your whole body shake with deep subs? Not really, because that would be terrifying, but […]
