In today's world, staying connected with social media applications is a top priority. More and more time is devoted to sitting in front of a computer screen, and even when we're on the go, our smartphones keep us updated constantly. Casual arguement with a friend at dinner over last nights basketball game? Pull up the replays on your phone and settle it then and there! Trivia question? Google it!
But in this on-the-go environment, what has been lost? Taking time out to sit and read a newspaper or book is all but gone.
In an effort to combine the old social media with the new, I thought of creating a chair that enabled both. These chairs would be located in a public spot, like an airport or lobby, and slowly rotate and glide around on a track suspended from the ceiling. Shelves in the side of the chair could hold magazines, books, and newspapers. A large touch screen moniter at one side would keep you sublty updated with your favorite social networks, while the rotation and movement of the chair would allow for face-to-face human interaction with others.
