Yikes!: Glass Cactus Chair Makes Butts Cry

June 10, 2010


Has your ass been acting up? Maybe you should consider punishing it with a little timeout in the Cactus Chair. You know, really make it sweat for a bit. Per designer Deger Cengiz:

Cactus Chair is an experimentation to investigate the effect of visual data to the user's experience. The existence of the Barrel Cactus gives a temporary discomfort, even though the user knows that the cactus behind the glass is not a real threat.

The chairs are real and available for $3,000 if you're not comfortable making your own out of an old aquarium. Unfortunately, I'm gonna pass. You see, I actually enjoy sitting on cacti. It's like having 10,000 lovers at once.

Hit the jump for a side-shot.
