If Nissan has its way, we may be snapped back to the meeting room table whether you like it or not.
“We're hunting for awesome startups”
Run an early-stage company? We're inviting 250 to exhibit at TNW Conference and pitch on stage!
The chairs operate using four cameras placed throughout the room, which let it hone in on a target position and route a destination to that spot. It can also spin around 360-degrees.
As you can see, it’s awesome, but also a bit terrifying.
The tech is pretty cool for cars (I mean, Tesla kinda has the same feature, so why not), but I can’t say the same for the office.
Without people sitting in them, Nissan’s stunt is a sight to behold — but image you’ve scooted your chair over to grab a coffee from a table near the window, and some others are having side chats.
Your boss, annoyed with the perceived slight of a disinterested staff, claps — and you automatically return to the board room table, short two sugars and a cream for your coffee. Or, what if your boss just summoned your chair instead of scheduling a meeting to fire you?
This is what nightmares are made of.
