Ordinary office task chairs run toward variegated degrees of comfort. There are plush leather and pseudo leathers and woven cloth covers over various kinds of comfort foam. Where are the weight scales, time-in-use record keeping, body-temperature and pulse measuring features I wondered. How many technical features could be packed into an office task chair I wonder. Ergonomically speaking the humble task chair is underutilized in nearly every office.
Obviously computers and networking could be built into task chairs. That might be useful for medical devices, management information systems and translating language capabilities or even break entertainment. There must be many things easy to imagine that are far more useful. Perhaps cooking recipe mentoring or Bible scripture verse look-ups.
