Gyroxus Full-Motion Control
Part captain's chair, part chaise lounge, we can almost imagine James Tiberius Kirk taking this bad boy for a spin. The Gyroxus Full-Motion Control chair doesn't have any motors or power-assist at all, but still allows for natural, immersive movement in many games (or at least that's what the manufacturer claims). The method to the madness? You control the movement by shifting around in the seat. It's as if the entire seat is one big thumbstick, and wherever you shift, your game character (or vehicle, or whatever) follows. The Gyroxus even claims to burn calories, perhaps keeping the brave daredevils who purchase this product from becoming "fat Kirk."
