September 18, 2005 Like just about everything else on the planet, as the world undergoes its greatest period of change in human history, it makes sense that our furniture should also evolve. With music becoming a vital aspect of movies and games, there is an ever increasing call for total immersion and few environments can offer this - but the Pyramat can. The Pyramat is a cushioned mat with a headrest, built-in speakers, subwoofer and reverberation technology. Moreso, Pyramat is a unique entertainment accessory - a portable foam mat that is comfortable and capable of transmitting the sound from your movie, PC or game console throughout your body.

Pyramat features two 4-inch 80W coaxial drivers at your sides, a 50W 5.25-inch ARX subwoofer behind your head, and ARX physical reverberation technology behind your back, ensuring entertainment becomes a total visceral experience. The sides of the backrest are bevelled to deliver personal surround sound with precision. The sound system is engineered into an ergonomically accurate, lumbar-supportive floor loafer that feels ideal for virtually any body type. Pyramat is compatible with all game consoles, any audio device, plus TV, VCR, DVD or MP3 players. For gaming with friends, you can join up to eight Pyramats together and get everyone into the game. Pyramat’s appearance is funky and extreme, reminiscent of the technical detailing of premium sports cars. It features high-density cushion with a contoured, ergonomic backrest. Plug-in cords are at your feet to ensure tangle-free play and less mess. The digital hand-held remote is hard wired, completely self contained, and tucks conveniently into its own holster, positioned at your side. A zippered pocket keeps small accessories within reach. Pyramat folds quickly and secures with its own belt for easy storage. Three colours are available: black, green and blue. The Pyramat 550 is available for a recommended retail price of US$150.
