A new reclining iRocker, marketed as an "interactive gaming chair," is equipped with remote control and speakers.
SAN JOSE, Calif. Adonis Furniture Inc., an importer, manufacturer and wholesale distributor of sofa-bed futon frames and platform beds, has rolled out the world's first "video-game rocker chair" with an iPod-licensed docking station.
The iRocker from Adonis (Oakland, Calif.) is said to be an "interactive gaming chair with docking station" that allows the user to lounge comfortably while enjoying surround-sound music.
It comes with a remote control, a multi-position reclining back, speakers, audio inputs, and line inputs to Apple Computer Inc.'s iPod product and other MP3 players.
"The iPod is a phenomenal product with a huge consumer base spanning multiple age groups," said Matt Sansoe, general manager of Adonis Furniture, in a statement. "As the only chair made specifically for iPod, our iRocker has the style, design and functionality to make it the perfect complement to the player."
Major retailers who are already lined up to carry the iRocker products include Costco, Target, Amazon.Com, Linen's and Things, QVC, Stacks and Stacks, FAO Schwartz, Gately's Shopping Network, and Fortunoff. The chairs are also sold regionally at a number of outlets including HOM Furniture in Minnesota, Boscovs and Just Cabinets in Pennsylvania; and American Furniture Warehouse in Colorado.
With speakers made by Alltek Vision, the iRocker is available in seven different price points, ranging from $99 up to $599. Each chair adopts the sound through between two and five speakers, depending on the model.
