Every day I find in the email dozens of reports on the most disparate topics: AI, robotics, publications and new gadgets. Many deserve it, some less so. This of the station that looks like a scorpion I could not ignore it for the wow effect.
I'll make it short: you are either normal or you desperately want to have this Cluvens IW-SK zero-gravity, this crazy gaming chair, or eSport station, and what else.
According to the official website Cluvens, this nasty scorpion-shaped zero-gravity "eSports workstation" can support one 49 "ultra-wide monitor or three 27" curved monitors. Cluvens IW-SK weighs a whopping 120kg, is 65 inches (165cm) long, 47 inches (120cm) wide and 82 inches (over two meters) tall when fully extended.
No, it won't look good in a nook, you'll need some space.
My sincere, ignorant impressions of the Cluvens IW-SK (and in general of the gaming and eSport stations)
Let me just say for the record that I'm neither A) an avid gamer (this is a limit that Futuroprossimo will try to reduce) or B) a fan of insects, especially ultra-poisonous ones like scorpions.
This is why beyond the wow effect a gaming chair isn't something I'm really excited about. Least of all if it's actually some kind of six-legged insect cockpit.
For professional deformation I'm trying to figure out if I could recycle this eSport station in an office environment. Maybe when there is a job looming and some colleague coming to disturb. It would be enough to add a device to the sting (nothing deadly, mind you) that acts as a deterrent. An electric shock, here.
The feeling of driving a robot, not of being on a gaming station
According to Cluvens' description, the cockpit is motorized and "at the touch of a button it turns into anything". The "tail" of the scorpion extends and becomes the cantilevered support for mounting the screens. Both monitor distance and angle can be adjusted using a controller.
The "claws" on which the mouse and keyboard rest have rounded corners, so they are not as dangerous as they seem (but no cup holders? Where do I put the coffee?).
Cluvens IW-SK can also allow you to lie down for a break, or to soothe postural pain (in this period I would need it). It is also equipped with a massage and heating function, so you can enjoy some quality time like only real bad guys can.
As comfortable as one feels on a giant insect, of course.
The price? Poisonous
To sit on Cluvens IW-SK you pay around 3.200 euros, and you have to wait a while, but Cluvens promises that the wait will be rewarded.
