Robot chair follows you around library - video

When you need to sit and read in the library this chair is always there!

Can you hold your card out in front while sitting on the chair and get it to follow it? - like a modern day donkey and carrot?

Imagine if you activated all of the chairs you would have an army of willing minions, and become a sort of pied piper of the library chairs.

What you do is swipe your RFID-enabled library card in front of the chair's sensor, which then follows you (or your card) around the library so you always have somewhere to sit.

Once you cross a line near the checkout counter, the chair returns back to its docking station to re-juice and get ready for the next person.
