Best gamer chairs of the Gadget Show Live in video

Take a look at our video round-up of the best gamer chairs from the Gadget Show Live 2012 in sunny Birmingham.

CNET UK's own Andrew Hoyle has been bringing you all the news from the Gadget Show Live in Birmingham this week, but all that racing around the NEC in search of the best techy toys and narrowly avoiding death by car-crash gets tiring after a while.

Fortunately, there was a chance for respite when the time came to test out the best gaming perches. Park yourself somewhere comfy and take a look at all the chairs in (in)action in the video above.

First up is the X-Rocker Gamebag, a chair adorned with a distinct tessellated pattern of monochrome pentagons and hexagons that is likely to please any sports fans out there. Let this £30 bag of beans cushion you while you play FIFA and your ears will be filled with a stadium-full of cheers from the built-in speakers every time you score.

Also from X-Rocker is the Vision 2.1 Gaming Chair with wireless surround sound -- a more suave seat for those who are as serious in their interior decor tastes as they are about their gaming. Oh, and it swivels.

If you're in the market for something more luxurious and perhaps live in the kind of palatial residence that has a spare room ripe for turning into your own arcade, the Motion Simulation TL1 is the throne for you. At £34,000, it's pricier than your average chair, but it does come encased in a shiny red shell. This also houses a 180-degree, spherical projector screen, which offers possibly the most immersive home gaming experience money can buy.

Where do you usually like to loll while you're gaming? Do any of the chairs in the video take your fancy? Do let me know in the comments below, or slouch on over to our Facebook page and tell me there.
