The Take a Seat chair will stalk you through the library

This odd little chair was made specifically for libraries, it is rare that chairs fall under the gadget section but this one happens to have a small electronic twist. This chair will actually follow you around just in case you need a seat.

Just swipe your library card on the square in the front and it will follow you wherever you go. Management can actually swipe several and get multiple chairs if a larger setup is needed.

The chairs were designed by a Dutch designer, Jelte van Geest. It would be great for those too lazy to find a seat nearby or for the elderly who tire easily and want to have a seat while looking through the books.
