From 'Matrix' to the living room, sans head plugs

This personal media center is the best of all worlds.


The last time we saw a set-up like this, we were trying to figure out how to spell Nebuchadnezzar without much luck. But this takes the concept behind the " G-Tech Neber " to an entirely new level, out of the clinical category and into the living room.

Despite its Pottery Barn-inspired name, the "Maya Single" media apparatus impressively features an architecturally designed chair with strategically positioned 60-watt speakers, subwoofer, and 32- or 26-inch screen perched precariously by a metal arm hanging overhead, all accented with natural wood trim, according to T3. The sound system definitely puts it ahead of the similarly inclined " Alternative Computer Control System " but, for pure technological appointments, it still falls short of the " Aura ."

Still, the Maya is one sweet ride. The only major drawback, so far as we can tell, is that it doesn't fully recline .
