Get A High-Tech Workout Sitting On Your Ass

If there were a workout you could do while lounging comfortably in a soft leather chair parked in front of your TV, you might toss your gym membership once and for all.

After its debut at CES this month, the Tao Chair plans to deliver on that dream.

The arms and legs of the chair put your body in a series of holds that require you to exert force to sustain, which Tao can measure. You can push or pull against them to vary up the muscles that you're working on, and get a more even training session.

A display on the chair's arm will show you exactly how many calories you've burned whilst enjoying your latest Netflix marathon.

Tao is not yet available for purchase, but when it is, execs from the company are planning to sell it for under $1,000. And for a targeted workout that strengthens and tones without locker rooms, lines, sweaty gym clothes and most importantly, that $100 monthly fee, it may be well-worth your money.
