Cooler Master’s futuristic chair isn’t exactly unheard of. In 2019, Acer launched the Predator Thronos Air, a reclining chair with monitor support and even massage. At the time of launch, it cost US$ 20,000 (about R$ 104,000 in the current dollar exchange rate).
There is also the Emperor XT from MWE Lab, a mechanical workstation with support for up to three monitors and which costs US$ 4,950 (about R$ 25,900) in the simplest version.
