Do you ever sit down at your desk and wonder why the elevated surface doesn't have more sensors to record and analyse data about your movements and habits?

"Going to work" means a lot of different things to a lot of different people, but for most of us? Welp, it probably involves lots of sedentary hours sitting with pretty poor posture at a desk that's not quite the right height, staring and staring and staring at a screen. But!
