The O-chair; an all-in-one office chair.

ochair

With office space expensive in a lot of area’s and people working mostly as digital nomads space can be used more optimal.

A comfortable office chair with small tablet as desk, a hydraulic arm with a second (large) screen that can be deployed from the back, plugs for any device and electricity plugs under the seating that get powered by batteries in the wheels that are powered by floor contact or through an additional plug for supercharging reduces desk space with a factor between 3 and 5. Furthermore when equipped with a GPS, it can anticipate constant movement. By including your calendar appointments, you will move automatically to the meeting rooms in time, without being distracted from what you do and thus save productivity time. Over time, more intelligence could be build in so it analyzes everything you and your colleagues work on in real time so clusters of work will group people more logically on the floor. Adding the layer of wellness (massage buttons, media center,…) makes sure you never want to leave it again. Except when you feel the urge to spend a penny… 🙂

Battery walls exchange service.

Batteries Exchange Vending Machine

With modular systems on the rise, phones and tablets will be able to use the same parts in different brands of technology. I foresee a standardisation of batteries. And my next idea anticipates it with a technology parts sharing society;

Battery walls are vending machines with charged batteries. When you enter your old, you get a ‘new’, charged one. Every battery that gets returned gets checked on optimal life expectation. If it’s below a certain threshold, it will be recycled.

The business model works on very small subscription fees & a transaction cost. It could be placed at entrances of business parks, in office buildings, on parkings next to highways, high traffic consumer places, etc…
