Motorized scorpion computer chair perfect for working from home

Between working from home Monday to Friday and then staying at home on the weekends, these days a lot of people find themselves wanting a more comfortable setup for their extended PC sessions. Maybe you’ve upgraded to a nicer desk since the start of the pandemic, or a more padded chair.

But if you’re going to be spending several hours a day at your computer, aesthetics are important too in keeping your wellness level up, and if the aesthetic that appeals to you is “techno arachnid supervillain,” then there’s really only one sensible furniture choice.

Say hello, and also “Please don’t kill me,” to the Scorpion Computer Cockpit. According to its official website, it’s made by a company in China called Cluvens, though we currently have no way to confirm that that’s not just a shell corporation run from the shadows by the sinister Scorpiotron Empire.

Oh, and if you think it looks intimidating in still photos, you should also know that the Scorpion Computer Cockpit is motorized, and looks even crazier in motion.

In its unoccupied configuration, the keyboard tray is pivoted to the side and the monitor “tail” (seriously, what else can we call it?) is uncurled, allowing you to plop yourself right down on the seat.

Once you’re in position, you can then command the Scorpion Computer Cockpit to swing the keyboard and monitors into arm’s reach and your line of sight. Shouting “Transform!” as you do so is entirely optional, but also obviously entirely irresistible.

The frame is made of high-carbon steel, and the tail can be equipped with up to three monitors. You can also adjust the chair’s posture in both sitting and reclining positions, and reposition the legs too for optimum stability in the spot where you’ll be placing it.

If you’re wondering if you can fit this mechanical minion into your lair, the maximum dimensions are a length of 165 centimeters, width of 108 centimeters, and height of 208 centimeters. As for how sturdy the Scorpion Computer Cockpit is, it’s designed to accommodate users up to 124 kilograms in weight, and both 100 and 240-volt chairs are offered.

Cluvens lists a price of U.S.$3,299 on its website, but the Scorpion Computer Cockpit is available for a much cheaper $1,999 here on online marketplace Alibaba, and there’s even a discount to $1,899 per chair if you order 10 or more at once, which is a nice deal for the generous overlord who wants to give them to his star employees/Hell Generals to boost their morale and productivity.

As an added bonus, when your friends come to visit you can say “Feel the Hate burning inside you” while your sitting in the chair.

I definitely do NOT need one.

If it didn’t have the scorpion look, you probably could make it for half the cost.

Too many sharp edges for a home with a rambunctious 6 yo! "Too many pokies" he'd say. For the kind of money they're asking I'd rather buy a cleaned up used ejection seat. Now those are cool !

The moment I saw it I knew the biggest sting would be felt in your wallet.
