I do not (yet) own this desk, but I've put lots of research into this in hopes of soon owning a sit-stand desk. After evaluating quite a few desks, I've all but settled on the Workfit-D. It is non-motorized; the raising and lowering is enabled by Ergotron's "Patented Constant Force™ technology". That's a fancy ...
Not exactly a drone but more or less accomplishes most of the same thing. This thing is pretty awesome:
Update: This product has horrendous support and the software is severely lacking with no plans of improvement for necessary things like LAN discovery.
This isn't necessarily the product I'd want but it's a low-end solution for $18.28 USD:
Some IR sender could be programmed to control this. Perhaps something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Global-Cache-IP2IR-iTach-Wired/dp/B003BFTKUC [+$92.00 USD]
There's also a 5x1 ...
Your best option would be to use the upliftdesk which is available online and has a motor to make it go up and down is made with quality materials has wire managment and it has a keyboard tray.

I was wondering how the real systems do start immediately?
A simple Google search reveals, for instance, that Tesla boot time is ways longer than the one of a Raspberry Pi. I'm not even talking about devices other than cars. Most home routers need a minute or two to boot, and where I work, a Xerox machine takes up to ten minutes to boot.
In a ...
This one's pretty easy, really. Pick up the TP-Link HS100 Wi-Fi Smart Plug. It was the first device I found when I searched for "smart outlet."
It is $25
It is bog standard 2.4ghz wifi
It turns stuff on and off
It is still made and supported by TP-Link, which is a large and well-known networking products manufacturer
It's easy to use - "there's an app for ...
I think you'd have excellent luck with the Raspberry Pi A+ for ~$25. It has excellent documentation, some preexisting servo driver software, and integrated GPIO pins, which are the things you solder the controller wires from your motors to. It does NOT run a real-time environment, so stutter might occur, but for your use case that might not matter. At only $...
