Mogo Portable Stool for People with Standing Desks

"Mogo portable seat" is made by a company called Focal Upright. 

The Mogo is basically just a seat atop a ball, made for standing desk people who want to take a lean every now and again. Perching on the stool lets you take about 30% of your weight off of your feet. Basically, it allows me to do what I was trying to do with my chair, but that's what it's actually made for. When you're ready to stand upright again, you can either fold it back up (that's right, it folds), or lean it unobtrusively off to the side. 

From the moment I started leaning, I knew I wanted one. 

"You're supposed to change postures about six to eight times an hour," a spokesperson at the Focal booth told me. There was also a bad pun thrown in about using the stool to "rock your day job," since the ball base allows you to rock back and forth or side-to-side. Lame jokes aside, after trying the $99 Mogo out, I'm convinced that once I get back to New York I need to ditch my old chair. Looks like I'm not going back to sitting after all.
