The chances are we’ll all be driving (or rather not driving) autonomous cars by 2050. The technology already exists, with Google, Apple, and Uber all known to be working on it.
And then there’s Nissan, which has already launched its ProPILOT technology. This ensures your car stays a safe distance behind the vehicle in front. And it turns out the same technology can be applied to chairs.
This video shows the ProPILOT Chair in action. It is, as you may have already guessed, a self-driving chair designed to be used by people stuck in queues.
Everyone in the queue sits in one of the chairs, and when one person leaves the queue, everybody else moves up one place. Yes, it’s bonkers. Only in Japan.
