Epic Games subsidiary Chair took the iPhone 4S launch as a chance to launch a blockbuster of their own; Infinity Blade 2, the sequel to their mega-popular iOS hack and slash title. Set to launch on December 1st, the…
There’s no accounting for taste, is there? The fruit of designer Philippe Boulet’s loins, these Léon and Max chairs light up in different colours thanks to colour-changing LEDs within the seats.
Though given that it looks like they’re made out of solid plastic, I suspect comfort’s taking a back seat here. Would you buy these? No, not as a joke, for real? Let us know in the comments.

The designer calls this chair “Fully Loaded”, and says it’s a ‘unique dichotomy of comfort and demise’. It’s made of 388 shotgun shells, already fired, sadly. You can pick from black, green, blue, red and copper shells, and the brass is covered with a coat of varnish to prevent tarnishing.
The chair is currently being built to order. No word how much it costs, but I suspect we’re not talking tens of pounds here – more like hundreds.
If you're desperate to spend $37,000 dollars on a chair, then look no further. Even if only because you'll struggle to find many others at that price.
This is the Matrix Unplugged chair, and if you're excited about the name, you'll be ecstatic when you hear that the chair was fashioned out of the prototype of a nuclear submarine. Sadly, there's no nuclear technology on the chair itself, although it does boast motorized hydraulics to enable you to get into a perfect sitting position.
And if that's not enough for your $37,000, the designer of this one-of-a-kind chair, Zoran Milivojevic, will customize it in any colour you like, if it doesn't quite match your existing furniture. Although the red does go rather nicely with that picture in the background.
Continuing in the grand tradition of game chairs, the Gyroxus is packed full of weird tech and looks ridiculous. That doesn’t matter though because you won’t be looking at the chair when you’re sat in it – you’ll be gawping at the telly and hanging on for dear life.
People with an excessive amount of money irritate me, the way they can justify spending $6,020 on a chunk of metal, bash it with a sledgehammer, and call the compressed-car-type steel ‘furniture’. And probably claim it on tax as it was ‘therapy’.
What am I rabbiting on about, you ask? The Do Hit Chair, which is a 0.04″ thick steel cube, which you can style into your own armchair by bashing it with a sledgehammer. Of course, the key is not to go overboard…
For anyone striving for extra realism in their racing games, the Playseat Evolution could be the piece of kit needed.
The patented gaming chair has been launched in the UK market, and claims to be so good that it’s a sponsor of the Dutch A1 racing team, and has been thoroughly tested by all of their drivers.
It features a highly adjustable, rigid seating arrangement and high quality materials, so that it can withstand “even the most vigorous of gamers”.
Finally, someone is bringing the age-old act of having a nice sit down bang up to date.
Fuwa Pica’s idea for a new chair is a bit special, and best of all, mildly offensive to fat people.
