Teleconference Chair - Assignment: Design a conference chair for the year 2010

My feeling was by 2010, a greater number of Engineers, Executives and Designers would be working remotely from home offices, interacting with a worldwide business community (and timezones) Computers will have shrunk in size enough that one could reside in the base and keyboards will be part of a touchscreen. I stand by my 2002 vision.

Project for MFA Industrial Design 2002: Design a Conference chair for the year 2010.
My predictions:
> Increase use of Teleconferencing
> Longer hours working through
many time zones.
> Telecommuting
> Keyboard-less computers
