Nissan invents the self-parking office chair.
To help promote their new intelligent parking assist technology the folks over at Nissan have invented self-parking office chairs.
With a single clap, the futuristic furniture repositions back into their rightful positions, leaving that meeting room or office floor neat and tidy.
So how does it all work? Well according to T3,
‘Nissan have taken a normal chair designed by Okamura (a Japanese furniture firm that specialises in ergonomic workstations and office chairs) and fitted a series of motors to drive the wheels at its base. The chairs themselves a controlled over Wi-Fi via a series of four motion-sensitive cameras positioned around a room, which direct the chairs to neatly fill gaps on a given table.’
