Reactions in the TSA office to the new Puma Playseat were universal. “That’s a sex chair” said Jason, “Definitely a sex chair,” agreed Nic, and I confirmed, having seen very similar devices on my, uh, travels.
The seat, which will cost you £398.00 including shipping, is advertised with the line “the joy of sitting.”
Let’s take a look at the nice picture below, which shows the Playseat positioned in someone’s boff basement (the industrial exposed bricks and wipe clean floor are a dead giveway).
Still unconvinced of the chair’s usefulness? Well as the image below shows, it can rock. I mean, it can actually rock, not that it’s really good.
Apparently this is to show off the four modes the chair has and not that it’s perfect for thrusting while someone straddles you.
“Adaptive, comfortable, dynamic,” say Puma, “Stability in cruise mode, support in defence mode, grip in attack mode, and freedom in win mode.”
It’s a chair, Puma. A chair on a rocker, stop pretending it has “modes”.
“Using high-tech, breathable materials developed by PUMA, the seat adapts to players’ positions as they get immersed in the on-screen action, while remaining comfortable even after many hours of play,” say Puma.
““We have to start seeing gamers as athletes, with requirements particular to their sport,” adds Charles Johnson, Global Director of Innovation at PUMA. “As a sports company, we want to offer these athletes the products they need to perform at the very top.”
If you do wish to furnish your palace of love with one of these beauties then here are those ever so important key features:
- Complete freedom of movement;
- Ultimate comfort thanks to the high-tech, breathable ActiFit™ material, also developed by PUMA;
- Total control through MotionForce™ base with rubber feet.
- Perfect for the missus to lay back on while you give her a good seeing too.
- Storage pockets for accessories such as phone, controller and remote control;
- Can be set up in just a few seconds;
- Ideal for all consoles and mobile games.
There doesn’t seem to be anywhere to store five gallons of Mountain Dew though, so I’m not sure if Puma have done their research. Oh well.
