Does anyone really need an office chair made of -- and outfitted with -- a bunch of resistance bands?

The $600 Gymygym chair promises you, a sedentary white-collar drone, an opportunity to "work and stretch your arms, legs, back and core without leaving your work space. Depending on your fitness level, you can increase or decrease the tension of the exercise bands, letting you tone and strengthen your whole body."

But even if you're desperate to show off your rubber-band-yanking abilities in the office, why not just stick a crapload of exercise bands in your drawer and pull 'em out to impress your colleagues during meetings? You'll save hundreds of dollars, which'll come in handy once you get fired.

Better yet? JUST STAND UP AND MOVE AROUND, people.
