Because I am On the edgethe local expert on “strange animal stories” (see: killer hornets and the story of an eagle against a drone), of course, my colleague suggested that I would like to look at this game chair made to look like a giant scorpion.
This is the gaming chair and workstation with zero gravity Cluvens IW-SK. According to the Cluvens website, it can support an ultra-wide 49-inch monitor or three curved 27-inch monitors and comes with HDMI / DP cables to connect them. It weighs 265 pounds, is 65 inches long, 47 inches wide and 82 inches tall when fully extended. So it won̵
Let me just say for the record that I’m neither A) an avid gamer nor B) a fan of insects, especially ultra-venomous ones like scorpions. So the gaming chair is not something I’m really on the market for, much less an insect eight-legged gaming cockpit.
I’m trying to present it in an office, however, as an office before a pandemic, where rand colleagues would inevitably stop by your desk to chat about Steelers when you’re on time and just need to focus and – um. Maybe I see how this insect pilot is used. If we could attach a device (nothing too deadly) to the sting to scare people away, I could go up here.
According to Clovens’ description, the cockpit is motorized and “at the touch of a button it becomes everything you need.”
<He looks directly into the camera>
The scorpion’s “tail” lengthens and becomes an overhang support for mounting screens, and you can adjust both the distance of the monitor and the angle with the help of a controller. The “nails” where the mouse and keyboard rest (probably why not) have rounded corners so they’re not as dangerous as they look (but no cup holder? Where should you put your mountain dew?) And, Kluvens says:
The body of Scorpio is the place where you can choose to sit upright or lie down to rest. And guess what ?! The chair even comes with a massage and heating function so you can enjoy quality time while pretending to be a decent villain.
Wait, wait, wait … it relaxes and has massage and heating functions? This is … much more interesting.
Still, you should feel comfortable lying in a giant insect, so you’re not sure how relaxing it would actually be? Katie Keck c Gizmodo really wants one, so go comment on her story. We all need to help each other in these difficult times.
Cluvens lists the chair at $ 3,299 (but our CNET friends found it on Alibaba for only $ 1,900). You have to book them in advance, but Clovens promises that you will not regret the wait, and says that you will be the envy of all your friends.
Your very cool friends.
