Nissan show self-parking chair

In an amusing spin-off to automotive technology, Nissan has shown video of its own ‘self-parking chairs’.

The company says the chairs – or at least the idea to build the chairs – was inspired by its intelligent park assist technology.

The “Intelligent Parking Chair” automatically moves to a set position. The chair includes a roller to automatically move 360 degrees paired with a system that indicates the target position.

Four cameras placed on the room’s ceiling generate a bird’s-eye view to wirelessly transmit the chair’s position and its route to destination.

“With this innovation in office technology, Japanese businessmen are now freed from the troublesome task of arranging chairs,” Nissan says, I hope jokingly!
