Aerocool’s Project 7 lineup won’t be restricted to PSUs and cases: At Computex, the company announced its first Project 7 gaming chair, which uses blue edge roll lighting to offer a distinctive look. Lighting is par for the course with cases, PSUs, and basically every other component or peripheral on the market, but it’s still not all that common with chairs.
Aerocool said that the light cable that runs across the chair in edge roll LED-lit stitching can be managed with an independent controller placed on the side of the chair. We’re pretty sure batteries supply the lighting with the necessary energy, because it would be non-ergonomic (and dangerous) to use the mains network instead.
The chair itself is black with blue highlights. It’s made with leatherette--artificial leather--so you’re bound to be disappointed if you were willing to shell out (much) more money for real leather. We notice moulded foam pads in the seat and backrest for added comfort, and 4D adjustable armrests allow for high customization to suit your needs. A class-4 gas-lift allows for adjustable seat height while supporting up to 330lbs (150kg) weight.

OK, the LED thing has gone too far. What's next ... the plug in anal probe that will shine LED lights out my ears and eyeballs whenever my heart beat rises in response to tense gaming moments ? I have a plain white LED strip from back in the day when you had to solder on your own connectors. I think I will have to remove it lest I be subject to the same embarrassment a 20 year old feels when hos fronds come over and are rummaging about his room and they find the old Britney and Justin CDsReply
I said this a long time ago!!!!Reply
It was only a matter of time before they started putting LED or RBG on these dumb gaming chairs!!
Its not even a good chair to sit in and use a computer.
What they need to do is create a chair with active air vents. Place a 200mm fan (with dust filter of course) in the seat of the chair that delivers air through vents in the seat, backrest and headrest.
Nothing says gamer to me like a blocky uncomfortable chair with LEDs.Reply
