back to article Chair maker punts $6,000 iPad recliner

What might an obscenely rich, profoundly indolent fanboi choose as the ultimate iPad accessory? Might we suggest the six-thousand dollar Elite Home Theater Seating iPad Chair? That'd be the Premium Package version of the leather-upholstered recliner, the upgrade that adds butt-shaking sound enhancers, an adjustable headrest, and …

So, Bala is just another example of a 'merican who hasn't got the slightest grasp of what the essentials of a European sports car are?

Wide wheels not fat arse (unless it's a Porsche)

One assumes that Bala has mistaken high performance cars for sports cars.

A European sports car should give the impression that driving it is exciting, thrilling and anedge-of-seat experience and if you get it wrong it will kill you.

America tends to pull the teeth of Euro sports cars and make them 'safe'. It just looks like a comfy chair without the Inquisition.

I doubt and self-respecting Apple person would own something this garish. Hell, I'm not an dApple person and I wouldn't buy this crap.

"sleek new iPad Chair"

After looking at the photographs I came to the conclusion that the above description was a joke.

It was, wasn't it?

WTF?

FFS!

Hmm neck ache from staring down at a small screen. Wonderful! With home cinema kit at least you are looking at something large that ensures you move your head about a little.

Sounds like just another company jumping on the "ooh-look-we-have-crowbarred-a-product-with-an-ipad" bandwagon to me.

Essential Extras

"...twin low-frequency Crowson TES 100 drivers mounted below the chair's arms to "transport you into a visceral experience.".."

What about twin, vacuum connected drain holes in the seat, to transport away your visceral experience? You could sit in comfort, all day.

Nah, this is targetted at iPad owners.

Therefore, the essential extras would be an industrial sized Vaseline dispenser and a jumbo box of Kleenex 'tummy wipes'.

thinking too small

With integrated Quagmire robotics to bend the user into a position to insert the new Apple product where the sun don`t shine at each Apple product release.

So it's

and ugly chair, with a cheap nasty clamp shoe-horned to fit a cup holder. With a ooo so tasteful logo printed on the arm.

This is why Americans can't build sports cars (with the odd exception). They try to make a Aston Martin and end up with a Homer Simpson bodge job.

The fail is more abject than that

The chair does not even have a iPad dock, merely a generic holder for a rectangular device approximately the appropriate size.

- So it can't charge the device, or even pipe the device's output into those gigantic speakers....

Thus, this is merely mechanised upholstery with a dodgy cupholder.

You fail!

"During the design process, our goal was to design a chair that blended the sleek styling of a European sports car with the clean aesthetic lines of the iPad itself,"

Uhh....fail and fail. It looks like a few boxes covered in leather with an attachment for the iPad that completely fails to match (or even compliment) the rest of the chair.

For that kind of wedge

I could have a custom made leather recliner that didnt look like a dog and could be fitted with any Tech I wanted and wouldnt have to be thrown away when IPad2 comes out.

But I can see screws!

Alas the illusion was shattered as soon as I spotted the screws on the iPad holder. Obviously not an Apple endorsed accessory :)

Just need a tray-meal and a light above the seat then I can pretend I'm on a long-distance flight in the comfort of my own living room.

Maybe someone continually humming and rocking you violently every few hours could add to the plane experience at extra cost.
