At first glance I'm interested and think its a great idea and a great overall product. Followed by sticker shock and a reasonably good feeling that I could build my own version for a lot less. I probably would too if I had the space for such a project.

And finally I remember that sitting idle for long periods of time is about one of the worst things you can do to your body. Naturally I want to keep in reasonably good shape so something like that is a really bad idea for someone like me.

No catheter either. So, I guess when you get up to pee, you get another beer. You're going to have to get up, so you might as well get some exercise.
MAYBE you can set a timer to allow only so much play.

Reminds me too much of the Space Jockey from Alien. Would not feel comfortable sitting in such.

Also, you know what makes that chair suck right off the bat? The fact that the monitors are held in place by the chair itself -- imagine moving your arm or shifting your weight in the chair, only to have all 3 of your LCDs bobble/bounce. Yeah, no thanks.

I just noticed that I own that keyboard model (Logitech DiNovo Edge) and mouse pictured.

Not crazy about 4:3 monitors personally so it begs the question of what options they have since the photos seem to only show 4:3.

The photo of the product actually being used has the right arm of the user off of the armrest padding.

I wouldn't assume that the monitors would move if the user shifts their mass around. I'd either have to try it myself or get some info from someone who has tried it to answer that one.

Personally, I'd love to get some 27" 4:3 monitors, but lately they've mostly been made from unobtainium.

When you have 3 of them next to each other, methinks 16:9 would be a little too wide.

That sounds like an opinion with respect to 16:9 being too wide and a preference for 4:3. Your certainly entitled to that opinion and preference but its not one I share. I have three 27" 16:9 monitors in a triple monitor setup and its exactly what I want,....for now.

There is a less expensive version, for about 1/10 the price, but it isn't "custom" made.

I'd do 3x 16x9 but turn them landscape

Can you attach a cycle to it?
I'm more of one for the elliptical but that design looks like it might fit a cycle

Well I guess you could always lower the foot rest and use a small foot pedal exerciser or something,....

That's a good idea you have there.

Imagine if you could use cycling motion to power the whole setup.

if you're going to peddle 1000w of power I'm sure you'll be in good shape.
