Acer Predator Thronos Gaming Chair hands-on: Gloriously Excessive

Acer Predator Thronos Gaming Chair hands-on: Gloriously Excessive

The Acer Predator Thronos Gaming Chair is something out of a sci-fi movie - or perhaps your wildest at-home arcade dreams. It's like I'm one of the Sovereign from Marvel Comics - in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, where they remotely control spaceships from their super-advanced full-sized consoles. Or one of those kids in the movie TOYS, controlling war machines from the comfort of their own gaming chairs - or something like that. In any case, this is pretty awesome.

Samsung The Frame 2019 and Serif bring QLED to high-end furniture TV

The Edge Desk Review

The Edge Desk Review

Over the past couple of weeks I've worked almost exclusively on The Edge Desk. This desk offers a unique way to work with a new way to sit. Instead of focusing all of my weight on my bottom and my lower back, The Edge Desk aims to spread that pressure to my legs and knees. The way I sit now is different from any position I've ever worked in before.

IKEA welcomes iPhone 8 wireless charging with tribute campaign

You can credit the iPhone 8 and iPhone X for the recent resurgence in interest in wireless charging, and IKEA isn't letting that opportunity pass it by. The company has offered select versions of its furniture with wireless charging functionality since 2015, but until now iPhone owners have required an adapter in order to take advantage. With the arrival of native support in the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, as well as the upcoming iPhone X, IKEA is relaunching its range.

LifeSpan TR1200-DT7 Treadmill Desk Review: Because sitting is killing you

LifeSpan TR1200-DT7 Treadmill Desk Review: Because sitting is killing you

Even if you're not as lazy as I am, you probably spend a lot of your time sitting down. Desk jobs may have spawned a whole industry of ergonomic seating, but getting up off your chair altogether is the newest trend. First came standing desks, initially seen as a fad but gaining traction so that no modern office is without at least a few of them; now, treadmill desks like LifeSpan's TR1200-DT7 are looking to crank up your movement even more. I may not know whether "sitting is the new cancer", but I do know I need more exercise.

Physical Pong game table about to meet its Kickstarter goal

Physical Pong game table about to meet its Kickstarter goal

If you've ever wanted to own a coffee table that doubles as a physical version of the classic Atari game Pong, now's your chance. The same people who created the Pong table that was shown off in a popular YouTube video last year have taken their design to Kickstarter, and the project is about to meet its funding goal in its final days. The mechanical table game essentially functions like an Atari-themed version of air hockey, with physically sliding paddles on each end, and a puck that uses magnets and motors to bounce around.

Sleep Number 360 tries to make the case for smarter beds

Sleep Number 360 tries to make the case for smarter beds

Sleep is perhaps both the most undervalued and, at the same time, overrated aspects of our biological lives. We use technology day in and day out to improve our food intake, our activities, and sometimes even our grooming. But very few of those technologies actually focus on the time when we’re not active, aside from the very basic sleep monitoring function of fitness trackers. At CES 2017, Sleep Number is aiming to change all that with the Sleep Number 360 smart bed that employs all sorts of sensors, temperature controls, and even IoT communication to give you the best sleep of your life.

Herman Miller’s new Aeron desk chair is the update of a classic

Herman Miller’s new Aeron desk chair is the update of a classic

Herman Miller has announced an update to its iconic Aeron desk chair first released in 1994. Unlike most desk chairs at the time, the Aeron stood out due to its lack of fabric and foam, with the designers instead embracing a sparse, but no less great, design. It has been more than 20 years since the model first arrived, and now it’s back again with an all-new design — every part of it, the company says, has been updated.

UpDesk UpWrite Standing Desk Review

UpDesk UpWrite Standing Desk Review

This may not come as much of a surprise, but I spend roughly the same amount of time sitting at my desk as I do in bed every night. Most of my work revolves around my computer, and as such, I’m tied to a desk. However, not all desks are created equally, and recently I’ve stopped sitting quite so much.
