UpDesk-UpWrite-Gear-Patrol UpDesk UpWrite
Some people pay a pretty penny for the privilege of not sitting while they work. You don’t have to be one of them — instead pay only a reasonable amount to stand and slave away. This electrically adjustable standing desk features a whiteboard surface for your doodling pleasure, and it’s shaped so treadmills can fit beneath (if you’re one of those people). A good opportunity to make your posture as rigid as your work ethic. $1,149

This is their Elston last, which is engineered for supreme fit, comfort and performance. Not that any of that even matters — just look at the damn things. Be still our aching feet heart. $426
SodaStream-Play-Gear-Patrol SodaStream Play
To accompany the refreshed SodaStream bottle, Yves Behar has graced the world with a redesigned SodaStream appliance — and it’s super funky. The machine’s panels can be swapped around for a multi-colored look that should compliment nearly any kitchen decor. With a subtle teardrop motif and other slick details, this is definitely the best-looking DIY countertop liquid carbonating machine you can find. fuseproject.com

You’ll be able to brag to curious wildlife about the nanosphere tech woven into your new gear, too, and there’s space for a hydration pack so you can spend more time fording streams than drinking from them. acre-supply.com ()
