If you're looking to up the sci-fi factor in your home or office, the Clone Chaise is exactly what you have been waiting for. This luminous lounger takes on the anatomical form of a human being.

Created by British designer Sam Buxton, the Clone Chaise essentially interacts with the potential user. It activates as soon as it senses that a person is near. According to Book of Joe, "The electroluminescent display lights up, and as a user interacts with the chaise lounge, its digital heart and lungs begin to beat and breathe, as if bringing the chair to life."

A stunningly unique piece of furniture, only six Clone Chaise lounges were created. They are made out of acrylic, steel and sequencing electronics.
