Virtually everyone has had ideas of photocopying body parts at their office photocopier, but now Tomomi Sayuda has taken this idea a little further, as on his website, right under the title are the words “The arse is the window of the soul.”. If this is true, then here is a chance to photocopy your soul :). If you are wondering what I am talking about, it is Mr. Sayuda’s latest invention, the iBum. With this wonderful new contraption, all you have to do is take a seat on this fancy-looking chair, and it will actually photocopy your butt. Take a look:
As you can see, the base of the chair is actually a photocopy machine, and when you sit down, it automatically takes a scan of your butt and prints it out for you immediately (Okay, the printing seems a little slow).
I spent some time thinking about why people would buy this cool gadget, and it left me stumped. Granted, I can think of a few incredibly kinky ideas, but I mean, how many times would you use it in your life? As for the line that “The arse is the window of the soul.” I don’t even know what to say to that. I just sincerely hope it doesn’t land up at my house. Here is another thing to think about, the person who is sitting on the chair does not necessarily know that their arse is being photocopied…. So the next time you see a chair that looks like this, just be a little careful, or not, depending.
If you are still wondering how it works, here is a little video that shows the iBum in action (literally)
