Imagine being able to play your favorite video games 30,000 feet above ground. German-based Contour Aerospace, in collaboration with FactoryDesign, hopes to make that dream a reality.

This futuristic chair concept, dubbed the 'Not for Wimps' (NFW), is designed to give passengers the ultimate gaming experience. While this model is currently in the concept stage of development, it is set to debut this week at the Aircraft Interiors Expo at the German Masse in Hamburg.

Features of the chair include built-in speakers on either side of the headrest, a noise-canceling bubble to reduce surrounding ambient sound and an overreaching arch that suspends the monitor several feet in front of the player.

Other concepts to be shown include the Super Diamond luxury seating concept from B/E Aerospace and, for the economy cabin, the company's Pinnacle seat with an integrated iPad on the back.

Personally, the only thing I care about is where they put the cup holder. Stats for In-Flight Gaming Chairs Trending: Older & Mild
