SlouchPod gaming chair

Park your posterior on this puppy, plug in and play

Mobile application security vulnerability report

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.

SlouchPod, black and cream

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.

SlouchPod speaker

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...
