The Speediest Office Chair

NewImage

Andy sent us this fun project. His Office Chariot is a 20 MPH IKEA Poäng Chair with aerospace-inspired control panel. via officechariot.com

Admit it. You’ve never gone over 20 MPH in your office chair. No one has. Until now. Meet the Office Chairiot Mk II. No one needed this chair. But here it is, and now your chair just seems a lot less awesome. It’s not your fault. It’s Andy’s fault. And Andy don’t care. The Office Chairiot Mk II eats other office chairs for breakfast and uses them for fuel the rest of the business day.

No, really. What is the Office Chairiot Mk II?

OK, here’s the skinny on what it is: It’s a motorized IKEA Poäng comfy chair. It uses off-the-shelf scooter parts to roll around like it owns the place: Batteries, motors, chains, sprockets, tires, axles, bearings, etc. Pour all those ingredients into a garage, add maker guy in there and out comes an Office Chairiot Mk II.
