Considering That I am The Edge‘s local “unusual animal stories” specialist (see: murder hornets and the story of eagle vs. drone) of course my colleague suggested I would want to check out this gaming chair that is made to look like a giant scorpion.
This is the Cluvens IW-SK zero-gravity esports gaming chair and workstation. It can, according to the Cluvens website, support an ultra-wide 49- inch monitor, or three curved 27- inch displays, and features HDMI/DP cables to link them. It weighs 265 pounds, is 65 inches long, 47 inches large and 82 inches tall when completely extended. It’s not going to simply neatly fit in a corner, you’ll require a bit of room.
Let me simply state for the record that I am neither A) a devoted player or B) a fan of bugs, especially the ultra-poisonous ones like scorpions. So a gaming chair is not something I’m really in the market for, much less an insectile video gaming cockpit with 6 legs.
I’m trying to picture it in a workplace setting, however, like a pre-pandemic workplace, where rando colleagues would undoubtedly stop by your desk to chit-chat about the Steelers when you are on due date and simply require to focus and– hmm. Maybe I am seeing the use for this insect cockpit. If we could affix some kind of gadget (absolutely nothing too lethal) to the stinger that would intimidate individuals from approaching I may be able to get on board here.
According to Cluvens’ description, the cockpit is motorized, and “with the touch of a button changes into whatever you need it to be.”

The scorpion’s “tail” extends and ends up being the overhang assistance for mounting screens, and you can adjust both the distance of the display and the angle using a controller. And, Cluvens states:
The body of the Scorpion is where you can select to sit upright or rest for a break. And guess what ?! The chair even features a massage and heating function so you can delight in some quality time while you’re making yourself look like the ultimate bad guy.
Wait wait … it reclines and has massage and heating functions? That’s … a lot more interesting.
Still got ta get comfortable putting down in a huge insect, however, so unsure how relaxing it would in fact be? Catie Keck over at Gizmodo truly wants one though so go discuss her story We all have to assist each other in these trying times.
Cluvens lists the chair at $3,299(however our pals over at CNET discovered it on Alibaba for a mere $1,900). You have to book them beforehand, however Cluvens promises you won’t regret the wait, and states you’ll be the envy of all your pals.
Your very cool pals.
