take a seat

Jelte van Geest , a Dutch designer has created the most imaginative concept that I have ran across in some time. Take A Seat was designed for Openbare Bibliotheek Eindhoven. You can check out the chair and it is literally there for you anytime you may need it. If only I could get one of these things to follow me onto the subway! The video is a must see.

  • [...] Dutch designer Jelte van Geest’s RFID-enabled robotic chair is for Openbare Bibliotheek Endhoven, and it’s fantastic.

Once you cross a line near the checkout counter, the chair returns back to its docking station to re-juice and get ready for the next guy’s ass. The video after the jump illustrates how it works.
