Can't quite get into that "optimum ergonomic position" while you are grasping your beloved tablet? Now there's an accessory for that ... and pretty much any other weird thing you want to do with your iPad.
Elite Home Theater Seating, a company specialized in handcrafted home theater furniture, has created what it believes is the ultimate iPad accessory - a luxury chair that will make you feel like you are the captain of your own Starship Enterprise. The hands-free iPad chair was announced on August 11.
To get that truly futuristic experience all iPad users are lusting after (or just to impress your friends), the manufacturers suggest using compatible iPad applications such as the Crestron Mobile Pro G to select and remotely play movies on your home theater, control the volume, adjust the lighting levels in the room, and regulate the ambient temperature - all while keeping an eye on your "personal fortress" via live security camera feeds beamed straight onto your iPad screen.
Pricing for Elite Home Theater Seating's luxury iPad chair starts from around $2495. A Premium Package with adjustable headrest, Tactile Motion Transducers, high-power Crownson Amplifier, Luxa H4 iPad Holder, and motorized recline will set you back around $5995 per chair.
