The Altwork station feels like an anomaly. It's been in gestation so long, available for pre-order for so long, that one might be quick to count it as another stalled crowd-funded campaign. Except that the desk and chair number isn't a crowdfunder. It's a real product that will really be shipping later this year, and if you don't buy it by July 29 you will really be spending $US5900 ($7892) instead of the current price of $US3900 ($5216).

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
