Ass-cuse Me, Butt Will You Sit In This Chair?

Someone has invented a chair that automatically copies the ass of anyone sitting on it. This is an idea we simply cannot get behind.

They say that the ass is the window of the soul. Wait a minute — no one actually says that. Except for one slightly strange designer of tech-tinged furniture.

Meet Tomomi Sayuda, the inventor of the iBum (no relation to Apple). Sayuda has created a chair with a built-in copy machine on the seat: Hop a squat, and the iBum automatically starts scanning your fanny. Within seconds, a black-and-white copy slides out the chair’s side.

iBum: The Butt Copying Chair

Sayuda says her goal with the iBum is to “reveal the visual of this less popular part of the body without notice.” We’re not sure where it’s less popular — isn’t Sir Mix-A-Lot around here somewhere? — but the surprise ass-pect of this caboose copier is undeniably amusing.

“A sensor is detecting people’s existence all the time,” Sayuda explains, “so people will not realize the existence of the scanner. Without notice, the photocopy of the bum will arrive next to the chair.”

While we like ogling a nice tush as much as the next guy, we’ve gotta consider all the horrific hineys that would also be highlighted by this astounding apparatus. I mean, even with a generous estimation, we only want to see up-close images of maybe 10 percent of the cabooses that come through our back door. (Unintentional joke — the front door of our office is actually jammed.)

Still, you have to hand it to Sayuda: This is one creative contraption she’s concocted. Check out the following cheeky demonstration to see the thing in action, then join us as we laugh our you-know-whats off.
