They say necessity is the mother of all invention. Well, sometimesthe 'completely unnecessary but very cool' category lends a helping hand too.

Which is probably how the 'Take A Seat' design came intobeing. A chair, which has a motor and wheels as well as some robotics inside,can be activated by your RFID-enabled library card.

The chair then follows you around the library, allowing youto take a seat whenever the latest JK Rowling novel falls into your arms.

Dutch delight

Conceived by Dutch designer Jelte van Geest, theRFID-enabled robotic chair is designed for the Openbare Bibliotheek in Eindhoven, Holland.

The chair will be your little sitting buddy for the durationof your visit, then will return to its docking station to recharge once youcross the red line to exit the building.

The chairs will also arrange themselves in an auditoriumformation should they all be activated at once by a manager, and will form alovely little procession whilst doing so.
