10 Nov IKEA wants to scan your butt for the ultimate gaming chair
So it seems seeing the perfect gaming chair is no easy stunt. And rather than being land on a good gaming chair through trial and error, IKEA wants to make sure you get one that fits your posterior perfectly.
In a partnership with school esports group Area Academy and 3D-printing medical firm Unyq, the eventual IKEA gaming chair starts with a scan of your rear end.
What’s this eventual gaming chair?
The UBIK is a new ergonomic chair designed for the world’s most extreme baby-sitters. While it seems far out at first, the relevant recommendations is a brilliant one.
At the core of UBIK is an ergonomic stool, specially designed for the most extreme babysitters. It looks pretty much like other IKEA swivel stools except for the seat, which allows it to be furnished with a 3D-printed mesh programme molded to a person’s foot. IKEA’s Head of Design Marcus Engman, in uncovering the prototype at the IKEA Democratic Days, claims the chair may alleviate backaches and pains for gamers( or any other sedentary office worker) who expend long hours sitting in front of a screen.
How does the process duty?
You walk into an IKEA and get your body scanned and buy the UBIK chair. And in about 2 week, 3D printed inserts based on your biometric data will arrive in the mail. You put the mesh into the stool and voila! Your tailor-made gaming chair.
Unfortunately, UBIK will simply roll out in 2020 and for a limited time merely. No statement on the pricing or where the UBIK will be available. So, gamers, in the meantime, try the LANGFJALL swivel chair. I use it in my position and, while it’s not 100% backside embrace, it’s a really good chair.
