Source: Amazon Gamers Are Going Crazy For This Ergonomically Friendly Gaming Chair 2017-01-25 Wed 2017-01-25 Wed Serious gaming requires the appropriate gear to play in, and that of course includes a chair to accommodate hours of pounding on the controller and sitting in the same spot until someone starts complaining of a sore butt. But despite knowing the importance of investing in a chair that's more ergonomically friendly than, say, a lumpy, secondhand sofa painted with the occasional coffee stain, buying a comfortable chair can also be quite an expensive ordeal. If you happen to have about $50 left over from last month's paycheck, however, you might consider spending that on Buddy -the game chair-, a chair designed for gamers and bookworms. Ranked number one on Amazon and boasting over 100,000 retweets on Twitter, Buddy has been seeing explosive sales for its affordable price and design. ゲーマーのみんな！とんでもねえ座椅子が来たぞ！ pic.twitter.com/pQBJsunooe— ANO あの (@anoano95) January 23, 2017 Source: Amazon Though it can certainly be used as an ordinary chair, when turned around, Buddy's foldable headrest turns into a perfectly positioned elbow rest for gamers, letting them sit in a comfortable and healthy posture with no concern for hunched backs and strained necks. In addition to this, the reclining chair has 14 levels of support for the needs of every body, and can even be used as a stretching tool for tense backs and shoulders.

Currently, it is accepting order reservations on sites like Amazon Japan and Rakuten for under 5,000 yen (US $44). Purchases will be shipped around April 2017. Now gaming, bad posture, and a sore body don't always have to go hand in hand. Source: Amazon Source: Amazon By - grape Japan editorial staff.
