Can't Relax? Try This Chair.
« on: December 02, 2017, 09:07:02 AM »

I have no idea what sitting in this is like.  And I can't imagine it being that satisfying enough to warrant Costco's 2000 dollar price tag.  But I haven't tried it.  Not just an elevating foot rest, but one that envelopes each leg and soothes frazzled muscles from every angle, including the bottom of your feet.  It seems to have a built in view screen for gaming or catching stock reports.  It would be kind of embarrassing to have this in the living room and trying to explain to guests why you need it.  It reminds me of something Colonel Jack O'Neill would sit in to wreck havoc on the Goa'uld over the Antarctica.

tbh it looks to constricting, I need to be able to move my legs around to get comfortable after a long day standing up.

I would like to try it--and a much bigger screen would be nice.  But the price...................

Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

I have.  There was a very similar demo model at the mall.  It's fairly comfortable, but it's not nearly worth it, imo.

LOL.  My first thought as well.

Some people would do anything for pain relief, including back pain.  It needs full mechanical massage, head to toe.  And a much bigger HD TV ;-)  If you had an AI chair like that, it might decide to eat you ;-))

I was joking about the screen, or at least, I meant to.  In reality, I assume it's a fancy control panel.  I'm not sure why it must be so high tech, however.  How many settings to you need besides "high" and "low?"  OK, maybe you can vibrate your brain on low, and you're ass on high at the same time.  But REALLY!  Let's not get carried away.

No, have it voice controlled by Seri or Cortana.  But if it develops into Mudd's robotic wife, the shrill nagging from the chair will get rather annoying ;-)

I think I might go screaming mad (assuming that others don't think I am already there) in a chair like that.  The price isn't the problem.  The surrender to the chair is, LOL!

We have two of these in our break room at work and they are very comfortable. We are supposed to use it to help relax but the break room is loud and crowded with people cooking food, eating and talking. There are two chairs for a building full of people. I prefer to walk outside.
