SlouchPod gaming chair
Park your posterior on this puppy, plug in and play
Exclusive Review If your home entertainment system is almost complete - Sky Plus is set, the games console is comfortable and the HD DVD player is in place - but getting down to an hour or two of some serious gameplay means rearranging the furniture, then the aptly named SlouchPod could be the solution.
It is, in essence, a glorified bean bag, but not only is its shape crafted for considerable console time, thanks to a raised back, it also features built-in speakers and a volume control. Two 5W stereo speakers and a 10W sub-woofer are built into the headrest, and there's another sub-woofer in the base of the chair.
The circular control panel looks stylish and resembles slightly the silver fuel intake valves on Formula One cars and their pseudo-posh petrol cap equivalent on expensive sports cars like the Audi TT. There's a volume control dial and one for the bass level, plus RCA audio input, RCA multi-player audio output and an on/off power switch. And the SlouchPod logo lights up in blue neon.
You can also plug your MP3 player in, but we're not totally sure why you'd want to: speakers are good, yes, but then why not just use a good pair of proper mixing headphones and lay back on your sofa...
"oops" and "wrong link" are quite right, and the URL has been corrected. Thanks for pointing that minor slip out.
And...actually, the cream SlouchPod looks nice in my lounge...
... this: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2004/01/27/bofh_and_the_cyberchair/ isn't a related story...
You might want to double check your links.
Argos.com offers systems for the building industry, and does not (AFAIK) have a high street presence.
Methinks you meant argos.co.uk - or can we expect gaming-chair equipped builders on site any day now?
...'like part of your regular lounge furniture'
I don't know what your regular lounge furniture looks like, but this'd look pretty daft in mine.
I'm pretty sure you wanted to link to http://www.argos.co.uk/ , not http://www.argos.com/ , which seems to sell CAD modeling software.
