There are lots of interesting iPad accessories out there; now there’s a chair made especially for the Apple tablet. The iPad Chair is designed by Elite Home Theater Seating (, and it’s a bit futuristic to say the least.

A whisper quiet motor reclines the seat back while raising the foot rest, leaving you swaddled by the ergonomically designed chair. The lumbar support, elbow positioning, and a seat cushion are based on those normally found in a European sports car, says Elite Home Theater Seating founder and CEO, Bobby Bala.

A Luxa2 H4 iPad holder secures the device in its grasp with its six rubber pins. The holder slides into the existing cupholder of the Elite Home Theater Seating chair, and can then swivel and pivot 360 degrees. In addition, the iPad can be rotated vertically or horizontally, and can even be positioned flat like a table. Like malleable modeling clay, a dynamic mechanical joint hinge holds any position, and delivers all the pivoting action.

Pricing starts at US$2,495 per chair for the Standard Package, with the choice of either Black or Rustic Brown Leather. Power Recline and the Luxa H4 iPad holder is also included, however the adjustable headrest is only available with the Premium Package.
