Imagine: a cozy cottage, a carpet with light and shadow dancing on it, warmth from a fireplace, a rocking chair, cup of tea and … iPad, which you do not have to hold in your hands. Do you like the picture?
It is becoming possible soon. Micasa Lab in Zurich are developing a chair, called iRock, that can (prepair to be surprized): rock, hold an iDevice, generate energy and surround you in sound. The furniture is to come in five colors. Hope it works and is comfortable to sit in and use. I have only one question left: will it be easy to operate a touch screen while rocking? Unfortunately the only way to find out is to try it, which is to be rather expensive.
