  • Pricey massage chair folds into a cube

    The Venn diagram that drills down to the target buyer of this $800 chair must be a weird mix of people with lots of money, a tiny apartment, and sore legs. In cube form, the product “serves as an ideal footrest or stores unobtrusively in a closet.” Read More

  • Office Depot somehow gets exclusive rights to sell $230 NASCAR chair

    I don’t know how in the world Office Depot managed to secure the rights to this exclusive, limited edition “No. 14 Tony Stewart NASCAR High-Back Leather Bonded Chair” but all the suits at Office Max and Staples must be going ape shit right about now. If you don’t have stock in Office Depot, buy as much as you can afford as soon as possible (disclosure: I don’t own… Read More

  • Heated portable chair costs $120, makes being outside slightly less miserable

    If you’ve ever spent an extended period of time outside during the late fall or winter watching some sort of parade, sporting event, or interpretive dance, you’ll have no doubt A) had plenty of time to re-examine your life and B) wished you’d brought a chair. Now add C) to that list: wished the chair you didn’t bring was heated. Read More

  • Is keyboard furniture the next memory foam?

    If you’ve got about 40 of the same keyboard lying around (aww, I only have 37!) then might I suggest fashioning them all into a chair of some type? That’s what designer Dante Bonuccelli did with his “Text-ile” chair for the 2009 UMUL (Use More, Use Less) workshop in Milan, Italy. Read More

  • Messenger bag converts into a chair, leaves no room for your laptop

    Oh my, this had the potential to be the most thoughtful messenger bag ever. Upon closer inspection, though, it’s basically just a chair that folds into the shape of a messenger bag, not an actual messenger bag with, say, a padded laptop compartment and room for other stuff. Read More

  • Chinese boy killed when height adjusting mechanism in chair explodes

    I kind of hope this is some sort of sick, twisted joke but apparently a 14-year-old boy in China was recently killed when the pneumatic gas cylinder – the thing that controls the vertical height adjustment — in his chair exploded, sending fragments of the chair into his rectum. Read More

  • ‘BodySound’ chair with seven built-in speakers

    Take seven strategically-placed speakers and cover them in soft foam and Italian leather and you’ve got yourself the BodySound Recliner, starting at $5,995.

  • ‘GAMEROX’ chair aimed at fidgety, slouching kids

    The yet-to-be-released GAMEROX chair is a mish-mash of one of those big core-strengthening Yoga balls that some people use as their office chairs and a pivoting wonderspring filled with magical fun-tacity for kids ages 7 to 12. Read More

  • 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

    Office Depot has a very swank-looking $300 office chair with a $100 instant discount and another 35% off with coupon code 85088692 at checkout, bringing it to just under $130 plus tax with free shipping. 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
