On a Laminated Plastic Thousandth Folded Shoe: Part II


If you don’t really care for the comfort of your chair, maybe you should see how much better it could be if you could replace the chair’s base with something with more haste. Attaching ramjets under the seat may generate too much heat, so we'll try insulated pods at the end of steel rods welded to each wing, or the tail or something. You’d need a motor to get going and to keep your chair from slowing. You’d need to take friction into account, and here’s something else to think about – those the ramjets will not go unless they have some air flow. It would actually be quite neat to program AI into your seat, so that you chair would always know exactly where to go, and do route optimization through distance minimization. The problem here, alas, would probably be it's mass which would definitely be too great for you to manually relocate. You’d need a secondary engine to move into position. The other issue is extent so, unless its wings are bent, your chair will not be able to fit under the table, but soon this will not matter – I’d like to modify the latter...
