First off are Cereal Pants- lounge pants with a built-in bowl in the crotch, so you can keep your snacks handy and put your lap to good use at the same time.

But where will all that food come from? Heading to the kitchen is way too much hassle, so how does a couch potato who has taken root keep food available at all times?

2. The SmarSofa-

The SmarSofa from Gorenje Group comes complete with mini-fridge and cooling snack trays, so you never need to worry about being far from your favorite foods, and it looks all swanky too!

Or, for the ultra rich sofa resident, there's this one-of-a-kind couch created by Domino’s Pizza:

3. The Ultimate Man Cave Couch-

The Ultimate Man Cave couch has two swivel mounted flat screen TVs, mini fridge, gaming console, DVD player, paper towel dispensing headrests, and many more fantastically manly features all built into a couch that costs a cool $30k.

If you can’t afford one of these fancy schmancy couches, and your diet mainly consists of canned beverages, then maybe all you need is someone to toss you a beer every once in a while:

YouTuber personalbeerrobot has created the ultimate beverage dispensing bot, which is controlled comfortably from the couch via iPhone. It even lets you choose what type of beverage you want, so you don't have to get off your butt or deal with disappointment.

Now that you're covered in the beverage department, what are you gonna do about going to the bathroom?

5. Toilet lounge chair-

Okay, so technically this is a lounge chair, but if you have really good aim you can set this bad boy up right next to the sofa and fire when ready!

Or maybe you just need a wearable device that deals with the waste for you:

Built by the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency, the wearable space toilet was built to be worn like a diaper, and takes away the need to get up and go to the bathroom. Here's how it works:

Sensors detect when the user relieves him or herself, automatically activating a rear-mounted suction unit that draws the waste away from the body through tubes into a separate container.

Nothing beats aerospace technology when you're couch bound by choice!

Do you actually have friends that can still stand to be around you, even though you've spent weeks transforming yourself into a full-blown couch potato? You might want to invest in this:

If people simply can't stand to be around you anymore, because of the space toilet or simply because of the smell, you might need something to comfort your lonely soul:

But be forewarned- your new pillow love might actually want to drag you outside to meet her friends, but what if you're so firmly rooted to your couch that moving has become impossible?:

10. Couch Races-

Drag your couch dwelling carcass down to the Couch Races, held every year in Salem, Oregon. Likeminded couch dwellers slap some wheels and a steering mechanism on their sofa and sit their way to victory!

However, if you find that you've been dwelling on the couch too long and can't stand to be around non-couch people anymore you might want to prepare for the inevitable:

11. Bulletproof Couchbunker-

It might be just what a seasoned couch potato needs to survive the dark days ahead, whether dealing with debt collectors or the zombie apocalypse.
