    Don’t give them any ideas…

    On the plus side, with 3D printing I can now just download a new one.

  4. nathanroberts says:

    Pretty redundant, innit? Consumer products these days are so shoddily made they fall apart after about 5 uses anyway.

  5. rocketpj says:

    Originally created by Ikea for a wide variety of furniture. Build it, move it once and it starts leaning/falling apart. The second move is to the dump.

    You can only sit in the DRM chair if you are in the Kindle house.

    Good, but there should be more explosions and shrapnel. And then the user should be sued.

    • Mike Robinson says:

      The chair should also have a webcam to report back your sitting habits

      • for_SCIENCE says:

        And the back should have an e-ink panel to advertise other sitting implements you might be interested in based on your past sitting.

      I just realized that “sued” is an anagram of “used.”  

      OK, my work here is done.

    This is right up there with my Natural Rights Management Refrigerator.

  9. Glad to see brilliant minds hard at work on conversation pieces.

    Presumably this will lead to the immediate revitalization of the domestic furniture-manufacturing industry, and it will soon be as vital and innovative as the recorded-music and movie industries.

    • PhosPhorious says:

      Are you kidding?  When you can lend this chair to up to 8 friends? They need to make a model that can only be sat in by the purchaser. 

      Otherwise you are STEALING from the guy who designed the chair. 


      • Finnagain says:

         It’s only legal if all eight friends use the chair at the same time, in the presence of the rightful owner.

    The EULA Hotel in San Francisco is full of this furniture

    This is art. Good job. Makes a statement about current cultural issue, easy to understand, creative.

    Why, it’s just like the Pig and the Box!

    Can someone do voiceover of this video commenting on the various fashions? I’m interested in the clothing. All different, yet somehow the same.

    Is it just me, or are they sitting down in a really awkward fashion?

  17. Now to find a way to use this for evil.
