I am lucky enough to sit in an Aeron chair all day at the office. I love it. It is by far the most comfortable chair I have ever used, I wish I had one at home. As comfortable as this chair is though, Herman Miller is not sitting on it's hands in the ultra comfortable chair department. While the newly designed embody is definitely raising the bar, a Japanese company is shooting even higher, with robotics.....
That's right, a robotic office chair that is meant to cuddle you. Going in to sit down? It will rise up and meet you with the seat and backrest. Want to stand up? It helps push you out and onto your feet. Part of me finds this creepy, but part of me thinks that this would be great for all those hours in front of the computer. You just have to make sure that you fall under the 130 pound weight limit for this to work.
I thought the Aeron was expensive, I don't even want to guess at the price of this one.
