There are so many things in the world that seem frivolous when they first arrive on the scene. The easiest example I can think of is the smart phone – 10 years ago it was for super nerdy tech types and the young kids. Today, it is fast becoming the remote control of our culture – we are not too far away from day when our lives are controlled by our artificially intelligent assistants, through the device at the end of our arm.
And since all this tech hacking is making me tired, I need to take a seat.
It just so happens, this newfangled chair provides a seemingly frivolous solution. Judging by the video, this chair will have practical applications in the industrial/warehouse sector, but I can’t stop thinking of a time when regular folks are going to be walking around with a chair strapped to their back, because it’s convenient.
I’ll probably end up missing those afternoons spinning around in my office chair, though.
