The Rise of Gaming Chairs
Video games, till about the early years of this century, were hugely restricted by the limitations of technology and its adoption across the globe. However, with rapidly increasing access to internet and free market, people across the globe started actively engaging with video games. These, in turn, helped the gaming industry make bigger investments and achieve huge technological strides. Each aspect of the game was now closely scrutinised to see how it could be bettered. Aspects like graphics and audio were the first ones to see a marked improvement; this was soon followed by several other features like improved responsiveness and accuracy of response. Newer forms of advanced gaming consoles took on the market which was soon replaced by even better ones.
While games improved tremendously, one aspect of gaming remained without much difference for a while; the chair. It was however not long before serious gamers understood the necessity of comfort. It was clear that being in a more comfortable position resulted in a marked difference in their overall performance in the game. Chairs available at game clubs were better than those used at home, but those were very costly. Moreover, those were really not the kind that could be used at home and usually took up quite a bit of space and effort to set up. People soon started churning the conventional chairs at home and started using bean bags while they were engaged in games. These provided better flexibility than the conventional chairs; seating positions could now be changed as per preferences of the player, bean bags were also easy to move around. Now that the benefits were clear and the needs identified, many companies started developing chairs to suit the specific needs of gamers.
