The Most Disturbing Thing Since the Furry Lobster

I have no idea why anyone would want a chair that collapses on its own. I'm gonna be paranoid sitting down for a week... So very wrong. Oh well, at least we seem to have that all day deodorant pretty much down.

Well... I mean... Could we put a moment's thought into this? I really don't think they're selling the "Chair Fall Apart And Put Together Machine."

It's obviously either an art installation or a demonstration of robotic capabilities that have other applications. One could have said, "Why would anyone want to invent a rocket that puts monkeys or dogs into orbit?" I mean, you see that, right?

Sean Tisdall said...

Well.. yeah. I get the example of technology that will lead to other practical advances. But you didn't see dog launches happen and immediately feel the urge to double leash Fido just in case NASA showed up.

This invention, however, makes me distrust the perfectly non-rebelious non-robotic chairs we already have. Elementary Chaos Theory dictates that within 48 hours these chairs will begin to rise up against thier human masters. *THUD!* Crap, I forgot to carry the two.

Listen. And understand...It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead!

I'm designing a sofa as we speak.
They want "French Provincial", but after seeing this, I'm going to lobby hard for "Remorseless Robot"

And Mike.
It's a love seat.
Don't fight it. It could be fun.
