Ergonomic design is an important area of study because it helps us to prevent injuries at work. Whether it be carpal tunnel from repetitive use, a stiff knee from sitting all day, or swollen feet, ergonomic products offer the best solutions science can offer. The CDC recommends incorporating healthy work tools, stretching and using proper posture to feel healthier and happier at work.

Connectivity is the buzzword these days. I wouldn’t be surprised if it ends up being the American Dialect Society’s word of the year for 2013. (2012’s word of the year was “Hashtag.” Yawn.) Point is, we’re all connected like never before, via our computers, phones, department store loyalty card buying histories, the GPS systems in our cars, mobile tracking technology on trains and planes, satellite images, Google Maps… Pretty much everything we do is recorded in some way. It would be terrifying if it had happened more quickly. But like the frog in the slowly boiling pot of water, what happens gradually seems somehow to escape our notice. Then all of a sudden we wake up one day and our shoes are telling us we’re not getting enough exercise. At least, that’s what’s going to happen if Google has its way.
