In the world where multitasking is king, it would be a god-send if anyone could make a workout out of sitting in front of the office desk for eight hours or so. Hammacher Schlemmer, the store of ridiculously expensive novelty items, may have something that would give us just that.

The Elliptical Machine Office Desk is a complete office that just happens to have a semi-recumbant elliptical trainer. It features a desk that can adjust its height from 27 to 47 inches with just a press of a button, enabling you to even swtich to standing mode if you prefer working that way. The elliptical trainer, meanwhile, allows you to pedal at a slower cadence, allowing you to complete that PowerPoint presentation without having to break a sweat, literally. Do this for a full work week and you can burn about 4,000 calories. There is also a performance monitor on the desk that can be electronically controlled as it monitors distance, RPM, and calories burned.

Sounds good, but with its $8,000 price tag, you are better off buying a cheaper pedaller and place it under you office desk.
