Nissan Designs the Ultimate Gaming Chairs, Inspired by Car Seats

If you love to play video games at your desk for hours on end, then you need a good chair with lots of support. Since Nissan knows a thing or two about engineering seats for long road trips behind the wheel, they decided to give it a shot, and came up with three awesome concept designs, each inspired by one of their vehicles.

First up is the GT-R NISMO seat, which has sharp and aggressive style, inspired by the $200,000+ track-ready sports car. The design envisions a seat made from carbon fiber and aluminum, which are both strong and lightweight materials. With angular cushions made from red leather and microsuede, and a sweet headrest audio system to surround your ears, this looks like the perfect seat for testing your track skills in Gran Turismo or Project CARS.

The second design is based on the rugged and sophisticated Armada SUV, styled to look like a captain’s chair, and ready to offer up comfort for the longest gaming sessions. It’s got Platinum Reserve black and brown leather, and like the seats in the full-size SUV, has integrated heating and cooling to ensure your back and butt stay climate controlled. I’m thinking this would be a comfy place to sit when building out extensive worlds in Minecraft.

Last, but not least is a seat inspired by the Nissan LEAF. It looks quite slick in light grey leather with electric blue accents. Like the all-electric car, it’s made using eco-friendly materials, and packs modern technology like USB charging ports so you can keep your gadgets juiced up while gaming. Out of the three designs, I think it’s the most conventionally-styled, but also the most practical, especially with its built in leg rest.

Nissan isn’t planning on producing these chairs at this point, but maybe if they get enough positive buzz, they’ll consider making them, especially now that they’ve partnered up with the Faze Clan and OpTic Gaming teams. Like the real deal, I’d like to sit my butt in the GT-R NISMO the most.
