Step forward into the Hamster Wheel Standing Desk that will usher in a new era of unprecedented productivity.’ Mr Godshaw has added step-by-step DIY instructions (pictured) to design site Instructables so that other people can build their own version of his wheel.According to the project files, the wheel was designed using Autodesk Inventor and it took Mr Godshaw and his friends 24 hours to build Mr Godshaw said he considered adding brakes to the wheel, but decided against it 'to really force the productivity out of the desk user.' The use of the skateboard wheels (pictured) means that the design has a more fluid rotation, without the need for an axle The Hamster Wheel Standing Desk was designed to make office workers less sedentary.
But it is here that I have come to meet Carolyn Robb, private chef to HRH The Prince of Wales from 1989 to 2000.
Carolyn, slim with a cropped hairstyle not unlike that which Diana once sported, has kept her light under a bushel, until now.
But that is set to change with the release of The Royal Touch, a cookery book and also an homage to the family she grew to adore, living and working with them at Kensington Palace and Highgrove, and accompanying Charles on engagements, during a tumultuous decade.
She joined the household when William and Harry were seven and four, went on to observe at close hand Charles and Diana’s divorce, Diana’s subsequent death, and the instalment of Camilla Parker Bowles as consort (Carolyn’s most recent contact with the family was when she catered for Camilla’s food-writer son Tom’s wedding in 2005).
Lee is an Interventional Spine and Pain Management physician specializing in non-operative management of neck, back and musculoskeletal pain, in addition to interventional spine procedures.
The Hamster Wheel Standing Desk was designed by California-based art graduate Robb Godshaw (pictured).
Each wheel (pictured) consists of plywood, skate wheels and a pint of glue and is 61cm (24 inches) wide, and has a two-metre (80-inch) diameter.
It was designed to make office workers less sedentary The manufacturer claims the height-adjustable workstation allows individuals the opportunity to gain the necessary amount of exercise daily to maintain health, reduce stress, prevent disease and strengthen muscles.‘Step forward into a world of infinite potential, bounded only by the smooth arcs of a wheel.
Given the vantage point from which she observed our heirs to the throne, it’s amazing that it has taken Carolyn so long to write a book.
(Other insiders, such as former butler Paul Burrell, have not been so restrained.) But Carolyn, I quickly ascertain, is respectful and reserved in a way that seems at odds with the modern world of tell-all books, reality TV and over-sharing on social media.
She’s a carry-over from a gentler age, even though she is only 49.
