ADMT worktable and classroom worktable

Here are my pictures. As the videos are of very bad quality, i did not upload them.

The worktable is very efficient as it has a drawer where one can pull it out and put a keyboard on it. It can also be elevated for easier Macbook use. It has a stopper to stop the mac from slipping off the table. Its body is also hollow, thus one can store items inside. It also has a retractable handle for easy carrying.

Ergonomics and Anthropometry Part 1

1) The 2nd setup is preferred as it is ergonomic, and simple but efficient. It is also very sleek and stylish, unlike the other setup.

2) It has to be efficient, simple, spacious and easy to use.

3) These are important as they determine whether the person would use it or not, in a sense that people would use it because it is ergonomic.
