Submission + - Ask Slashdot: What is the future of standing/walking workstations?

secretrobotron writes: As a developer who spends most of each day at the same desk in the same chair, I'm concerned about ergonomics and what I can do to keep my body from wasting away while I program. Some IT professionals have the relative luxury of being able to walk around on a headset, solving problems, installing equipment, etc.. My utopia (albeit a pretty low-bar) is a world in which technology exists to allow me to walk about as I program.

My question is, what's available? Are people working on mobile-programming in this way? Are there hybrid standing workstations which allow me to take advantage of pacing-enabled programming?
