Want one of those trendy stand-up desks in your office but don't have the hundreds of dollars to shell out for it or your employer isn't willing to pay? Now one startup has an affordable solution: a $25 industrial cardboard contraption that transforms your existing desk into an elevated laptop platform in seconds.

The desk extender is called Oristand and it costs $25. All you do is unfold it on your current desk, place your laptop computer on top, and you're good to go. It weighs all of 2 pounds, folds up when you don't need it, and is portable.

"Oristand has been designed to support the weight of any laptop and keyboard providing you use it on a flat and level surface," the website states, so don't try balancing your desktop on it.

In recent years, standing desks have grown in popularity as studies have shown that sitting all day is bad for your health.
