Rock - It Energy


Murakami Chair on Design Boom.

Check it out.

I wonder if I would get nauseous if I tried to read while rocking, or if I would have to rock to build up energy for the light and stop rocking to read. Hmmmm.

I don't think that chair looks that comfortable either.

lol. i just got this funny image of rocking really fast, stopping quickly as the light already begins to fade then rocking...

the concept is cool...

A concept chair nontheless...

I'd like to see an automatic rocking chair...

Cleaver, but I can't rock and read. :)

When my kids were little I loved to read to them while rocking but I rocked slowly.

Very interesting post!
Thanks for sharing!

Cool idea! It could use some armrests, though...

Yeah, and I guess rocking and reading IS kind if hard.

It looks so cold and uncomfortable..not very welcoming:)

I'm kinda thinking this is a cool invention...not sure I would buy the chair but it's unique. I couldn't read while that chair was moving, would end up with a headache I'm sure.
Thanks for visiting me and have a wonderful evening.

I get insanely motion sick so I think this would make me puke if I tried to read in it.

Cute concept, but I think I'll pass! Oddly enough, I've just re-vamped an old rocking chair I've had in our storage shed for years.. watch this space.. (wink)

This is great. I've always wanted an exercise bike that generates electricity for my washing machine or any other appliance.
