So it might not be so practical, but for space enthusiasts, this chair could be the centerpiece of a wonderful living room. Part of London's Royal College of Art's Design Interactions Show 2009, the Soyuz Chair aims to accurately simulate the three stages of a Soyuz launch, all in a space-age comfy grandpa-style living room chair...

Experience weightlessness, the rush of liftoff and the unique experience of meeting the unknown, all from your cozy perch in apartment 2B.

From the Soyuz Chair product page:

Reclining into launch position, you face the sky, put on your headset, and use the control panel to select your mode; just a single stage, or the full lift off experience.

What do you think, Unplggd? Is the Soyuz Chair the new video game of the future?
