Living chairs

Too astounding to remain in the unblogged realms of the datasphere is Arthur Bodolec's living chair. It seems to be a black box, but when you sit on it, the backrest and even armrests pop up. What I particularly like is the chair being independent of stored energy in the chair itself, being powered completely by the sitter-to-be. And so the evolution towards a living world is slowly seeping ahead still. To see a prototype of the 'Jack' chair in action, skip the following movie to where the marker reaches 1:00.
