A team of researchers at University of Southern California Viterbi are working on a smart desk with the potential to adjust temperature, lighting, and desk and chair height automatically. The desk collects data from the user through a series of sensors that measure humidity, light, temperature, body position, heart rate, etc. Once collected, the desk analyzes the data to determine the users ideal settings as well as suggest changes to maximize health and productivity.
