For millennia, humanity has been plagued with the need to stand up. Standing up is one of the worst aspects of work. It would be much nicer if you could remain seated and your chair would move where you need it to move.
Nissan is making progress toward this noble goal, but only accidentally. Its self-parking office chair project is designed to promote its self-parking cars. Wired reports that the chairs are tracked by cameras, which guide the chairs back into home position. Clapping activates the motors, which could make applause-filled presentations fun.
Now offices and conference rooms can be tidier. Just clap your hands and the chairs that your slothful co-workers have left sprawled over the room will move back into their proper places.
