This seriously freaky chair design could have come right from the Terminator Salvation movie. The Autonomous Living Unit project is by Designer Eduardo McIntosh who envisions a single seating unit that combines all the functions of a home within a single chair.

McIntosh visualizes the Autonomous Living Unit chair would be installed in slums and deserted housing to provide all the basic needs.

Implications - Consumers appreciate the opportunity to indulge in one product that serves a multitude of purposes like this chair does. By combining multiple functions into one design, companies can afford to charge higher fees for their products as consumers are more willing to pay the price for convenience.
