    Re: Aerocool demos its motorised Gaming Desk

    I don’t have flash so I can’t watch it (perhaps it could be transcoded to H264 seeing as flash is pretty much deprecated these days?)

    But motorised desks to change the height for different users are not new. They are often used in agile working were a user Just stocks up to an empty desk in an organisation and can adjust the height accordingly,

    Quite why this is a gaming” feature is a bit beyond me unless it is used at a centre that hosts LAN parties.

    Seems as if gaming is just an excuse to hike prices.

    Then again, Scandi-style spartan designs in contrasting white and alooooominum used to mean high-end cutting-leading-bleeding-edge technology of unparallelled quality and unprecedented design paradigm.... until people realised that was just a marketing gimmick too.....

    All they did was re-brand an Autonomous desk and put a keyboard tray on it. Head over to https://www.autonomous.ai/ to get this desk for gobs cheaper! Especially if you, like most of us, don't care about RGB.

    I got one 2 years ago, use it all the time to go from sitting to standing because I'm in IT and sit pretty much full time. Works great, is stable, and no issues with controller or electronics.
