Over the period, there has been a complete shift in the primary function of a chair, i.e. seating the user in comfort. Expanding the function of common household furniture, British designer Jamie Martin has come up with a hi-tech seat dubbed the “Gadget Chair” that integrating game consoles, computer, TV/PVR, video & music playback and back massager in a single unit is sure to enhance the experience of the user. Incorporating miniature-cooling fans, heating elements and an adjustable lumbar support beneath the red exterior, the leather-upholstered chair also presents an ergonomic design to place you comfortably during those extended gaming sessions.
Placing an electronically adjustable 16:9 OLED screen upfront to work as a viewing platform for movies, gaming and internet access, the geeky chair too adds a number of multi-colored LED lights to project different tones on your surrounding environment, moving you in a zone far away from the real world. Surrounded by multi-directional illuminated speakers and a large sub-woofer, the user literally moves into the virtual world. The adjustable chair provides the user with an automatically retracting gaming wheel/joystick, where they can mount their keyboard/trackpad combo as well.
The ceiling-mounted motion technology allows both vertical and rotational movement, thanks to the hydraulic pistons. The chair provides a limited rotational motion to enhance the turns through the corners, allowing an altogether new gaming experience to the users. If this is not enough, it also connects multiple HD Digital TV tuners to the Mac/PC to utilize it as a 1TB high capacity PVR.
