Anyone who's toured their local modern art museum has seen a fair share of odd-looking furniture. And the Subsonic Chair would fit right in.
The UMID mBook BZ is in many ways a curious animal: it packs a ton of power into a MID, but doesn't know quite to how to harness it. It's a ultrasmall computer that can be ultrahard to use.
