Surfing in style

Surfing in style with the new Lazyboy recliner - except the keyboard is on the left side. Probably so your right hand can use the remote control.

Something tells me that having a free right hand is not for the remote... I would enjoy personally shooting any person who owns one of these.

Where's the Kleenex holder?

It has dual arm storage, plenty of space to put your kleenex in.

They should've put a Twiddler on it, instead of the laptop keyboard.
That would've sold it for me.

Well, assuming I had the money that is.

The twiddler is an amazing $200. Are they handcrafting each one out of human bone!!?!?!?

Yeah, that's why I don't actually own one myself yet.

I can't imagine there's much demand for them outside of wearables, so mass-production is out. Handcrafting may not be too far from the truth.

Human bone probably is though. :-)

What a disappointment! A recliner with a keyboard tray. Big deal.

The "Cyber-Recliner" I've been imagining for the last couple years has two half-keyboards, right at the end of the armrests, and a cage-mount for the monitor, so it's always in the same position--relative to your head--no matter how much you recline.

The deluxe hacker version could even come with "options" to enable multi-day coding sessions, without ever having to get up from the chair....
