For those who have everything: A new chair from Tempronics

Tempronics puts climate-control decisions “in the hands, or butt, of every employee.”

Finding a room temperature that suits everyone in an office “can be harder than tracking down the Higgs Boson.” A new chair from the Arizona firm Tempronics offers a possible fix by putting climate-control decisions “in the hands, or butt, of every employee.” Do-it-yourselfers have been able to achieve the same effect with a combination heating/cooling pad, but the built-in option is “considerably more comfortable.” Each chair is powered by a battery about the size of a laptop’s, so even operating a whole suiteful might be cheaper than upgrading the building’s heating and cooling system.
