Walkway is getting people moving by bringing treadmill desks to public spaces where no exercise options typically exist. Powered by Microsoft Azure and a Windows 8.1 app, the sponsor-supported workstations enable people to walk while they answer email, surf the Internet, or simply recharge their devices and their spirits. Available today in locations around Minneapolis, Walkway workstations are perfect for schools, hospitals, hotels and other traditionally sedentary settings as a healthy alternative to sitting.
