Alright, definitely nice for a fancy pants design school, but beyond that? It requires the physical environment to be build with the seats in mind. So the guy's ID card acts as a tracker? Now that's quite neat. Does it rank as awesome, though?

oh no, it's the beginning of humans as portrayed in Wall-E.

What we can't stand while we look for pictures in books at the library anymore?

it's a "concept visualisation"
that probably means it's not real?

probably it would be technicly still possible tough..
I think this is partly stop motion

"A concept visualisation"

It's not real. Cheack out 1:20 odd, it's clearly CG.

I wouldn't about using this for a chair. Instead use it for my grocery cart when shopping...now there's an idea.

My local library is frequently packed. In fact there's never enough space for people to move around let alone motorised chairs. I don't think this 'concept' would work there.

Perhaps you could use them at fancy pre-paid cocktail parties: One press of a button and the drinks table comes to you? :D

So the US is designing UAV's because they don't have enough patriotic soldiers that are willing to fly above taking photos?
The US is like the laziest country ever, if you don't believe me just watch some Future Weapons episodes, you guys want to make everything automatic or controlled from home so you can sit at McDonalds (gettin' more fat) while killing innocent Iraqies..
