The Tao Chair: Working Out Without Getting Off Your Butt

New at this year's Consumer Electronic Show (CES) is the Tao Chair. It's a chair that you sit in as you push and pull the hand rests to simulate push-ups and pull-ups....

Yeah... Gimmickry, does the Shake Weight come to mind?

The Tao Chair tracts your activity via a smartphone. Who needs to P90X when you can sit on your butt all day?

Hopefully, this thing actually get people to work out while watching their favorite TV show, or using mobile devices for social media use. I can easily see people buying this for the right intentions - then turning into the scene from Wal-E.

Would you buy one of these?
