Expo Notes: Take a seat

Editor’s Note: Macworld Expo 2008 is in the books, but Macworld editors still have a few reports from the Macworld Expo show floor on meetings with Mac developers, new product announcements, and anything else that catches their eye.

The Nada-Chair, in action

Year after year, Macworld Expo after Macworld Expo, I pass by the Nada-Chair booth. I usually stop and stare for a minute or two and watch the well-practiced booth staff practically hog-tie smiling Expo attendees with a series of straps. This year I finally decided to strap on the Nada-Chair.

The first thing you should know is that it’s not a chair. It’s a system of pads and adjustable belts that you cinch up to help you sit up straight when a chair with a seatback is not available. After James Knight beckoned me to sit on one of the two long benches in the booth, he quickly had me strapped snugly into a comfortable, posture-correct sitting position. It truly is comfortable and the guys are funny too—spitting out one-liners at a rapid fire pace.

Now, I’m not sure if the $75 Nada-Chair is OS X-compatible, but after a long day of walking the show floor, I was certainly in no hurry to escape the comforting embrace of that Nada-Chair.
