Where to ask this question... I was thought that the meta is a right place. –  vaske Oct 13 '09 at 11:52

It's (marginally) programming related so you might get some response on SO, however I think that it's already been asked over there anyway. –  ChrisF Oct 13 '09 at 11:53

1 Answer 1

I currently use one that has all the standard features of chairs: A flattish surface for my posterior, a back against which I can rest my back, placed at a certain offset from the ground such that my legs bend appropriately.

In the future, I'd love to retain that core featureset in my chairs. Some ideal enhancements would include:

  • Ability to generate food and/or water on demand
  • Integrated toilet facilities
  • Rocket powered casters
  • Safety belts (kinda goes with the above)
  • Cloaking feature (so coworkers think I'm away from my desk when I am, in fact, productively there and just ignoring them)

I am tempted to re-open this just due to this answer. Not tempted enough thought. –  Diago Oct 13 '09 at 11:50

There is no way I'm going to program in the same chair that I use as a toilet. The cloaking feature is already available: tongodeon.livejournal.com/311999.html –  tvanfosson Oct 13 '09 at 11:58

My son inquired about medical feeding tubes so he'd have fewer interruptions while gaming. You may want to look into it. :) –  Bill the Lizard Oct 13 '09 at 12:35
    
If you ever get that toilet chair, remind me to never visit you at your desk. –  user27414 Oct 13 '09 at 13:00

Also, in addition to a cloaking feature you need a hologram generator so that coworkers think you're at your desk when you're really out on a long lunch. –  user27414 Oct 13 '09 at 13:02
    
@Diago: As it so happens, I think this answer got in seconds after you closed it -- the client-side validation bug strikes again! :) –  John Rudy Oct 13 '09 at 13:08
    
@Jon B: What do you think the primary point of the toilet chair is? :) Fewer interruptions = more productivity. It's a win-win for the company! :) –  John Rudy Oct 13 '09 at 13:10
    
@John Rudy: that's on purpose, the system gives you a grace period so if you have been writing half a novel as an answer, you don't get a nice This question has been closed 3 seconds ago message. –  perbert Oct 13 '09 at 14:14

@viyager: unfortunately, that grace period also kicks in if the question was deleted or migrated - at which point it's kinda pointless. –  Shogging through the snow Oct 13 '09 at 14:59

You left out the part about the facilities involving members of the appropriate sex. –  David Thornley Oct 13 '09 at 20:25
