TUNAI Creative is a new company here for us at ThinkComputers. Looking at their product lineup they currently offer two products, the CLIP, which we are taking a look at today and the Firefly.

Back in 2012 I was sick of sitting down all day and decided to build myself my own standing desk. While it worked pretty well it was not exactly high enough, and I could not adjust it up or down.
