Smart Chairs?



• Once the chair is placed in the room, it should automatically detect the positioning of all the items in the room and modify the original map of the room accordingly.
• The user would be given an interface, where he/she can pinpoint the location where it wants to move. On the basis of the map and the locations of all the other items in the room, the chair would find the shortest route to reach the point.
• The chairs should auto-adjust themselves in the most optimum manner in the room whenever the room is empty.
• When a user enters the room, a chair will automatically move to him/her when he/she snapped and then called “Chair”

That is part of the design abstract from Smart Chair and I saw Alan Alda demonstrating one on PBS. The one that he was on, which was not the same as this model here, I don't think, (yes, more than one group of people in the world are thinking about smart chairs) showed an imprint of his back and ass on a computer screen. I guess its the test one. In the future we will all be sitting on chairs with brains larger than the ones in our heads.

Alan Alda hosted a PBS show on this topic that aired earlier this week in New York.
