This futuristic new Solar Powered chair was developed by professor Sheila Kennedy and her students at MIT. The cool looking new chair uses solar power to generate electricity and has ports to charge your iPad and Laptop whilst you chill out and rock back and forth.

The chair also uses your balance to create an interactive 1.5 axis and 35 watt solar tracking system. Or as the professor put it:

The SOFT Rocker blurs distinctions between pleasure and work and recasts power generation as an integrated and distributed public activity rather than a centralized, singular off-site project of engineering.
