    A workspace add-on that turns a regular desk into a standing workstation isn’t really fresh.  We’ve featured a bunch of them over the years, in fact, from premium units like Kangaroo to more affordable options like the Adjustable Laptop Desk.  The UpStanding Desk does, pretty much, the same thing they do, but uses two surfaces of different heights instead of one, giving users more options in arranging their standing workspace.
