Sitting stick


A programmer I know decided to use a standing desk arrangement but needed an occasional change in position.

I made this shooting stick apparatus so that all the apparent health benefits of a standing desk could be maintained, whilst also being able to perch occasionally during prolonged debugging sessions.

It was designed around a telescopic paint roller handle, a bicycle seat and a floorbrush.

Originally, it was to have retained the broom head at the bottom, providing extra suspension, but this was found to be less stable than desired.
