The people of GAZE Lab in San Francisco California are seeking donations to finance the market debut of their latest innovation, the Gaze Desk.
Thirty-one backers have pledged $18,748 of the $100,000 goal, the set amount needed to be collected by Sept. 29 that will allow the first mass production pilot of the new ergonomic desk to be launched. Full circulation of the Gaze Desk is expected by December of 2016.
Their newest creation is being marketed as “the world’s smartest and ergonomic standing desk,” according Juyoun Lee, CEO of GAZE Lab.
The desks computer works with a smartphone app to remind users to keep up their healthy standing habit, according to GAZE Lab spokesperson.
“GAZE DESK is so much more than a standing desk,” Lee stated. “With its ioT compatibility, we are working hard to ensure that all of its auxiliary components synergize with GAZE DESK smoothly.”
The desk top sensors, working through the smartphone app, are designed to lift the height automatically when the user stands. The phone app initiates a timing alarm after the user has been in the sitting position for two hours, reminding the user to stand. The app will be preset for the user’s height.
Another possible additional innovation planned for the future is a Smart Height Measure Lamp, according to Lee. It will emit an ultrasonic wave sensor, automatically adjusting the desk to accommodate the height of its user, making any Gaze Desk compatible for adults or children.
“In addition, given that we have placed an emphasis on quality of craftsmanship,” Lee stated. “As we enter the mass production stage, we will have to work diligently to find a partner who meets our quality standards.”
Sixteen different pledge levels offer incentive rewards, starting with a thank you card for a one dollar donation, going up to a $1699 contribution for a Gaze Desk Smart Duo – Prestige.
“Every project has its risks,” Lee emphasized. “We at GAZE, have taken great care to ensure that all of the features that you see in our campaign page will be fully functional.”
