Herman-Miller Embody chair: $1,600 Aeron successor

Herman-Miller Embody chair: $1,600 Aeron successor

With economies around the globe sliding sourly down the pan, it seems an unusual time to announce a $1,600 chair.  Still, if people are going to be sitting glumly, contemplating their sinking shares, they may as well have something ergonomically sound to do it on: enter Herman-Miller and their latest uber-chair, the Embody.  Follow-up to the iconic Aeron, the Embody takes that fourteen year old design and adds even more flexibility and support.

Heckler Design OneLessDesk version two: Half-the-price, same design

Heckler Design have announced a cheaper version of their original OneLessDesk design, with a powdercoated steel body meaning it costs half that of the first model.  Consisting of two arcs, which nest together, the OneLessDesk design is intended to take advantage of today's super-slim flatscreen monitors, iMac-style all-in-one computers, and tendency for people to rely on laptops rather than traditional desktop PCs.

LED Pong Coffee Table tutorial & video demo

Take 4096 LEDs, 64 RGB microcontrollers and four Atari joysticks, throw them (with some degree of accuracy) at a coffee table, and you might get this: a four-way Pong table.  The whole top surface of the table has been turned into an LED array, the result of a two-year project by SparkFun Electronics.

The LED Bench seems a bit pointless

The LED Bench seems a bit pointless

Add this one to the section of random devices now with added LED lights. I'm not entirely sure it was necessary but I suppose it does look cool.
