GamePod Virtual Sensory Chair

And the last chair on Chair day...
A few years back, Logitech came out with a weird little mouse, the iFeel, which would produce tactile sensations whenever you scrolled over a clickable element like a toolbar or a web link. You could set it to "rubbery" or "metallic" and while it didn't exactly make me feel like I was inside my computer, crawling around my folders, it would help keep me awake when I was doing really mindless repetitive tasks.
The GamePod is like a giant, high-octane iFeel mouse with the added feature of two 50 watt speakers. You plug it into your PC, game console, VCR, or DVD player and the 200-watt transducer shakes in response to the pulse of the music. "High quality sound and sensation envelopes you. Feel the explosions, the hits, the crashes." You can daisy-chain them for multi-player gaming.
The GamePod chair is available for pre-order from Target, for $699.99.
