Webble Mobile Foot Rest

How crazy is this? It looks like a very sleek, stylish skateboard without wheels or a little surfboard. It's Webble, a rather ingenious alternative to those silly under-the-desk stationary bikes, and similar in concept to those wobble boards that help you develop balance. The idea is of an active foot rest that you can move your legs around on in a smooth, gliding motion while working at your desk (or watching tv or knitting even?). The Webble rides on ultra smooth casters and a patent-pending spring suspension and self-braking mechanism.

The health benefits of moving your legs while performing an otherwise sedentary job are obvious, but for me, it would solve another problem - the problem of being a natural fidgeter. I used to have a hard time sitting in a class that was longer than 45 minutes, and now I have trouble keeping still in front of my computer. I have to find excuses to jump up every ten minutes or so. I can easily see adding the Webble to my routine of fidgety movements throughout the day, and it's something I can do without pausing whatever I'm doing on the computer.

The Webble is the first product out of the new design firm, BriteObjects, and will launch in two days, according to the press release.

fhm:

Now I'm pissed! I keep my skateboard under my desk and do the same thing. Why didn't I think of this!

Liz:

for $200 (the retail price) I'll just buy a skateboard to keep under my desk. The webble looks like it would be great. but not $200 great.
