Smart Chair For Road Warriors - If You Can Afford It
This Smart Lounge Chair Is an Oasis for Road Warriors | Wired Design | Wired.com.
As office furniture goes, these are very cool. The canopies have wireless Internet and places for cables. You can hook a tablet computer up inside, and have privacy. The ottoman converts into a desk, and has storage for papers and other stuff. The armrests serve as computer mounts. All in all, one of these would make a great accessory for the office, or to use in an airport lounge. The only problem is that when a furniture manufacturer advertises something as part of a "collection" you know you are in trouble. As an example, a stool in this manufacturer's catalog costs over a thousand dollars. So, if you are super rich, buy one of these and compute away. Just don't brag to me about it. I will continue to use the sample room desk I got for $5 in 1970. It is an amazing piece of technology. I can fit a scanner, large monitor, printer, and charging station on it, and plug my computer in with a couple of cables. I then can sit in my comfortable chair and compute away. I think I will use the thousands of dollars I save on mortgage payments.
