When designer, Karl Emilio Pircher and Fidel Peugeot pooled their resources, something amazing was bound to happen. But who could have imagined that their creative offspring would be a(horrified B-movie gasp) a walking chair.
It used to be that when you sat in a chair, your butt was in control. No more. Surely, THIS is how robots will seize control, carrying us where they will, never to be seen again. Humans being lazy, will no doubt not attempt to get up and thus be carried off to our fate.(Especially if they add a TV in front. That will make their takeover easy) Thankfully, that day has not yet arrived, but watch these chairs closely. They are fabricated from chrome plated steel tubes, plastic, and they even house an electronic heart. It’s pretty expensive at the moment at EUR 15, 000, but once they come down in price, no butt will be safe.
Somehow I always knew that the key to robot invasion would be through our butts…But this is actually not as horrible as I first imagined. Ah, hell. Take over the planet and carry us where you will, just make it comfy.
