We live in a world of self-driving cars in our future, but what about self-parking chairs? Yeah, it's a thing - and of course, only in Japan.



Nissan has posted a new video to their YouTube page, teasing their new Intelligent Parking Chairs. The new self-parking chairs use an array of wireless signals, ceiling-mounted, motion-detecting cameras, and a Roomba-like circular chassis with wheels at the bottom of each chair.


The video shows the self-parking chairs being 'parked' once the owner claps their hands, with dozens of chairs moving by themselves and parking at their desks. At the end of the day, it looks like Nissan is really pushing its new Intelligent Park Assist self-parking car technology, but in a really cool way. It works, because it's awesome.
