Stir, the creator of a smart connected desk, has secured $1.5 million in seed funding. Tony Hsieh’s VegasTechFund (led by general partner Zach Ware) and a number of individual investors participated in the round. Proceeds will be used to expand sales operations and accelerate technology development. The company’s flagship product, the Stir Kinetic Desk, features a built-in touch screen that lets users transition between sitting and standing positions. It also uses a thermal presence sensor, activity tracking software and a Wi-Fi connection to learns users’ habits and adapt to their daily routines to optimize fitness and productivity. The Stir Kinetic Desk, which retails for $3,890, sold out of its initial production run just weeks after going on sale; Stir is currently taking orders for the second run of the product, slated to ship this spring.
