A chair that does the walking for you

"Walking-Chair" was developed by two mad-scientist designers in Austria.

Walking-Chair

Who says creativity is dead? Sanity, maybe, but not creativity. Just hours after learning of a concept that lets you use your laptop while walking , we came across another invention that does it one better: a chair that does the walking for you.

The ingeniously named "Walking-Chair" is the brainchild of a couple of mad-scientist designers in Austria, for what purpose we have no idea. The eight-legged beast is made of steel tubes, plastic, and an "electronic heart," according to Gizmowatch.

The price might be a bit on the high side for the office budget, however: 15,000 euros, which comes to about $22,000. Another argument for telecommuting.
