    Do any real nerds want to calculate the hours of rocking to minutes of reading ratio?

      I think the tricky part is picking a light source and a generator. I presume that the light should be chosen first, and the generator designed to meet that? I suspect that there won’t be a ton of energy available before the chair becomes uncomfortable to rock.

    It’s a stylish chair with lamp attached + high-tech wordage about nano-dynamos. The idea people have done their work. It IS a neat concept but the nerds shall take it from here. Nerds, whatever you do, please keep it from squeaking–that would ruin all the style.

      Hehehe, would it be ok if the chair was used to generate energy, which would then be used to play back a squeaking sound over some speakers?
