So you want to keep fit, help the environment, stay on top of your work and make sure your gadgets are always charged. How can you stay productive in business without casting one of these priorities aside?

That's where WeBike steps in -- or should we say pedals in. Created by Belgian company WeWatt, WeBike is a hybrid bicycle desk that requires people to pedal to generate the energy they need to work.
Users are able to charge their laptops, cell phones and other devices by pedaling.

You can place several WeBike desks together to suit the type of work interaction you're looking for. What the company calls a "straight" desk arrangement allows up to six people to sit side-by-side, while the "snake" arrangement option allows people to face each other as they sit -- perfect for meetings and more collaborative work.
A recent study from Australia's Sax Institute found that those who reported sitting for at least 11 hours a day had a 40% higher risk of dying within the next three years than people who sat for less than four hours a day. Meanwhile, the portion of jobs that require physical activity has declined by about 30% since 1960.
According to the WeBike website, you can both keep track of your physical activity and the power you are generating through an interactive LED display:
"WeBike displays instantly the degree of physical activity you are performing. The more power you deliver, the more LEDs will light up in the LED strip. When WeBike performs enough energy to charge the device initially plugged in, the bottom led strip will light up, indicating WeBike charges the device based on human power."
The WeBike is partly made out of recycled waste materials, incorporating a sustainable approach toward work even further -- its seats are made out of waste leather, and the wood used for the desk comes from waste cedar.
Each desk bicycle also comes with a built-in WiFi hotspot and 110 Volt output.
With all these features, not surprisingly, the product is not a cheap buy -- a round table with three seats costs 9,950 euros, or about $12,725.
