  • German teens unfairly busted for being awesome

    Not actually the actual chair the teens actually built in actuality. Two 17-year olds in Germany got busted on Saturday for tooling around town on their undeniably awesome office chair outfitted with a lawnmower engine and bike brakes. It’s being called the world’s fastest office chair but I’d be really interested to see how fast it actually goes and also the office chair… Read More

  • Capcom + Ultimate Game Chair = Capcom Ultimate Game Chair


    What were you expecting, a labradoodle? No. It’s actually called the Reactor. If you’re not familiar with the Ultimate Game Chair (of olde), it’s essentially a really nice chair with built-in ports, speakers, and motors to bump you, punch you, and vibrate you as you play your favorite games. Capcom is working with them to make a new, more Capcom-y chair with the same sort… Read More

  • Say goodbye to workplace swamp ass with the 'Suzukaze' air conditioned seat cushion

    Air conditioned clothing company, Kuchofuku, has developed the “Suzukaze,” which I’m pretty sure is Japanese for “ass de-moistifier,” but don’t quote me on that. According to Japan’s Corporate News Network,  This Kouchou Cushion features a new material inside called the super spacer which has the strength to support the person’s weight and… Read More

  • Gilded Age: $7,000 Italian leather chair. That must be one hell of an AV room!

    Maybe you’re dumb and wealthy enough to spend nearly $7,000 on a chair. (I’m not; I’d rather spend the money on condor-egg omelets.) The Antidiva Micama chair is made from genuine Italian leather, black, and you’re able to chose the material for the interior. Considering the last time I went furniture shopping was when I was a young boy at the local Macys, I have no… Read More

  • Know what this place needs? Definitely a floating chair powered by magnets

    I’ll be saving up for the office chair version whenever it comes out but for those of you looking to really kick back after a long day of widget transconfiguration (or whatever it is you do), here’s the “The Lounger” by British company Hoverit Ltd. Defying gravity with the use of repelling magnetic forces in both the bed and base this contemporary lounger is… Read More

  • Does Apple have a chair yet?

    [photopress:chairchairchair.jpg,full,right] Steve Jobs right after the iPhone’s launch in June: We’ve got two strong legs on our chair today — we have the Mac business, which is a $10 billion business, and music, our iPod and iTunes business, which is $10 billion. We hope the iPhone is the third leg on our chair, and maybe one day Apple TV will be the fourth leg. With… Read More

  • Ah, D-Box. I want one.

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf It’s a chair with hydraulic legs that moves around in harmony with whatever game you’re playing or whatever movie you’re watching. Well, maybe not whatever game or movie but there’s an impressive and growing list on the D-BOX site. It’s not cheap, but can you really put a price… Read More

  • Prisoners, meet the body orifice security scanner

    Acronyms are fun. In light of that fact, I’m pleased and honored to tell you about the BOSS. It stands for body orifice security scanner. It’s an almost-$13,000 security chair being tested in UK prisons to deter the smuggling of cell phones. Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Supple leather chair for $129, shipped

It’s made from "soft, supple leather". How can you resist? Everyone loves supple. Alas, it’s only designed for 3-5 hours of use per day, which makes me wonder how much… Read More

  • The Fat Person Detecting Chair: Sweet Justice

    Fat people are totally annoying, right? All fat and out of shape, getting in my way and taking up sooo much space on airplanes. Just enough already. That’s why this chair from—where else?—Japan makes me so damn happy. When normal, good people sit on it, the chair radiates a light blue. When good ol’ Fatsington McFatperson sits down, the chair glows red. Red like the… Read More

  • iPhone Third Leg In Apple Chair, Apple Chair Sucks to Sit On

    Dave at MobileCrunch dug up an interesting comment by his Steve-ness about the iPhone being the third leg in the Apple chair, next to iPod and Mac. During the internal Jobs-note, however, an employee asked if the iPhone would cannibalize the iPod, to which Jobs responded that he’d rather see Apple cannibalize it’s own gear rather than someone else. So, as Dave points out, that chair… Read More
