Volkswagen has created an office chair that can move up to 12.5 mph with a battery range of over 7 miles per charge. This is just a VW concept...chair designed as a clever PR and marketing tactic. Check out a short introduction:

The lights are inspired by VW ID models, so the chair is easily recognizable - and illuminates a dark hallway. After buckling up with a seatbelt, the passenger also can listen to music and activate a horn while operating the chair.

For office workers that spend hours every day in an uncomfortable chair, Volkswagen has "the chair" to help. Designed to help promote Volkswagen Utility Vehicles - the tricked-out chair includes reversing cameras and 360-degree sensor coverage, with information displayed on a built-in infotainment display.

Full list of features for "the chair":

  • Electric motor (12 km range)
  • Comfortable seat with embroidered Volkswagen logo
  • Seat heater and touch display
  • Beautiful exterior in metallic paint
  • Rear view camera and 360 degree sensor
  • Loudspeakers and entertainment system with songs that give you the feeling of going on a trip
  • Two-wheel drive (fortunately, we offer vans with four-wheel drive)
  • 4'' rims in solid aluminum and pedals with steering
  • LED lights, flashing lights and work party lights
  • Horn and USB charger
  • Removable, rechargeable battery
  • Storage space of 0.005 m3 and trailer hitch

Remains to be seen if this will just be a one-of-a-kind marketing gimmick or a glimpse at a future generation of worker's comp/HR issues.

It's fascinating to see tech-based innovation making its way outside of the auto market - a trend that will continue as vehicles adopt more software platforms.
