Gaming Comfort upgraded - Icrontic reviews the Sumo Sac

Sumo set out to solve some of the minor issues with their old faithful Omni chair. The result is the biggest (and most comfortable) behemoth of a "bean bag" you've ever laid eyes (or butts) on. Meet the Sumo Sac.

    Both kids were playing video games on it last night, and when I woke up this morning it was missing. I think it got dragged off by the kids to sleep on somewhere... :p

    We had it in the basement for the two weeks between the LAN and when we moved the couch, and I literally had to brace myself to not succumb and fall into it every time I walked past it because I knew I would be instantly asleep if I did.

    a friend of icrontic. IF you had been at the LAN, you would know these things, and have met her.

    Awesome, perfect timing to read your review, I was going to go out and look for a chair like this tomorrow, looks like you saved me the trouble and I'll get a great sac.

    So, my one question is, could you get your link activated so I can credit you in on the purchase? Depending on how much I spend at the Applestore I may buy it tomorrow or later, I guess I could probably tell them I found out through you if you don't get hte link working before I buy.

    So are the people in these photos really small or something? I swear, mine is 50-60% that size, I wish I would have gotten one of the much bigger ones.

    I slept on the rocker Sumo (rocker frame removed) and it was awesome. I slept better at EPIC than I do at home... and I am not joking.

    The rocker was discontinued due to manufacturing issues, unfortunately. I'll tell them that the rocker pad was great for sleeping though :)

    I plan on getting one once I purchase and move into a house. Funny story, one of my coworkers was looking for beanbags, I tweeted a link to the sumosack site. They actually replied asking if I was looking to buy one and sent me a link to the Icrontic review! Amusing.

    Then for scale( Med. T, 3.5 HDD, 775 PROC, 30-30 pants, Large Fedora, Sunglasses, and Chill Pill speakers.)

    Enjoy! I am!

    Also that is not what I would look like if I was a computer. There would be more processors and a few GX2s for arms instead of speakers.
