Today's Engadget post by Evan Blass about Steelcase's entry into the treadmill workspace has engendered tons of email, much of it requesting specs et al for my TechnoDolt™ iteration (above).
I just noticed how similar the words "iteration" and idiot" are when you say them.
But I'm sure that's just some random neuronal thing going on, what?
American TechnoDolt™ — yo, Green Day, what up?
But I digress.
Here is a list of all the posts that've appeared here re: the treadmill office since the first on January 21, 2005.

Remember, Steelcase's is slated to cost $6,500 while I created mine in about an hour from stuff I already had in my house/basement/attic and a trip to Bed, Bath & Beyond (for the 4 wooden folding tray tables that, stacked side-by-side two-high (top), make up my office tower of power, cost... drum roll... a grand total of $24 (4 x $5.99 apiece for the tables).
I can't speak for you but me, where I went to school $24<$6,500.
I'm just saying, is all.
And if even Humphrey, my trusty sidekick,
can use it, well, that's lagniappe, isn't it?

Working on making one of these right now
The "just find one at Craigslist for $100" isn't that easy...
I think a bunch of people are getting hip to this idea drying up the cheap treadmill sources

I placed the treadmill between two tall 12-24" wide bookcases facing each other. I placed a board between two lower shelves and velcro'd a wireless keyboard to it. One shelf up, I put another board, screwed another rectangle board in the middle just the size of my laptop, with a couple braces so it wouldn't slide off. Next to it on the board, I velcro'd my small extra harddrive and a small lamp.

I, too, built my own. I placed the treadmill between two tall 12-24" wide bookcases facing each other. I placed a board between two lower shelves and velcro'd a wireless keyboard to it. One shelf up, I put another board, screwed another rectangle board in the middle just the size of my laptop, with a couple braces so it wouldn't slide off. Next to it on the board, I velcro'd my small extra harddrive and a small lamp.
I put a table with a printer to the left, a radio on another shelf to the right, and I was off.
I don't even notice the time going by. Love it! And cheap too.

I like your economic style... what brand of treadmill do you use?
Will be setting my own setup together... would like to add some sort of writing space for notes etc.
Do you read books while using your set up?

Hi - The one thing I can't seem to find anywhere is actual data on which specific treadmills are good enough to hold up under daily use at a low speed. Can you help? Thanks

Lehman Brothers stock is now .05/share. You can get 20 shares of Lehman Brothers or 1 item off the dollar menu at McDonalds. Eating and then getting sick sounds like more fun than just getting sick.

YOUR NEXT PROJECT: hook up the treadmill to a paper shredder...walk, read, clean up the mess...all at the same time ;-)

Installation, that is.

I especially like the newspaper sculpture installment.

I have got to set one up for myself...
