Gaming chairs are great, especially when they're combined with bean bags, but there's only so much they can do in the way of performance--especially where sound is concerned. That's apparently why Pyramat, which makes its own line of chairs, is extending its offerings to include the "Lap Blaster" sound booster.

The device promises to turn any laptop into a "personal home theater experience" by connecting it to two full-range speakers housed in a flat surface that lies under the computer, according to Uber-Review. With an ergonomic design, it can double as a writing desk and, more important, can help keep the computer from overheating--an especially good thing if it's literally sitting on your lap.

In fact, is it just us, or is anyone else discomforted by the name "Lap Blaster"? It seems like an unfortunate juxtaposition, to say the least.
