The Segway Office Chair

[YouTube - Link]

Asimo asked for an office chair, so Honda made him one. This Segway for even lazier people follows in the footsteps of other interesting but unnecessary balancing acts: A robot that balances on a ball, the hands free transporter, and the even dorkier Segseat.

I could also see this as being useful in a lab or workshop situation where standing the entire workday is out of the question, but standing up and sitting down 400 times to move a over a couple of feet to a different piece of equipment can be tiring and hard on the knees.

I agree. It will be a wonderful benefit for some of those who are now confined to wheelchairs. Merely being in the sitting position isolates the disabled in many situations. The social value of having your face at the same level as everone else's is not to be underestimated.
