iRock [5] is also designed to charge any other Apple device. Made with pine wood and painted in shiny white or various other hues, the chair’s design is appealing [9], but think about this: The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) notes that the annual cost of charging an iPad [10] every other day is only around $1.36 a year. Considering you’d have to shell out a whopping €1300 for this chair, and factoring in that this chair isn’t exactly eco-friendly, you may be better off with a $10 charger. Also, how many gadget minded items do you really need [11]? You tell us. Would you buy the iRock?
