The iBum Chair Automatically Photocopies Your Butt

Problem: photocopiers are expensive, uncomfortable, and generally can't support the weight of an adult human.

Solution: the iBum by Tomomi Sayuda:

This project came from "impact" brief. My initial concern was the news about a naked British streaker who jumped into the Japanese Emperor's palace moat. I was interested in the principle of the news, which is showing embarrassment without big harm for fun. For me, impact means positive and humorous reaction. I decided how to represent this principle. This idea development took the longest time of my four projects. I was brainstorming in many ways with some practical developments since October 2008. Finally I came up with the idea of scanning people's bum.

I think that we should all take a moment to thank the engineers of this world, without whom we would not be living in this modern, technological paradise.
