I adore reading about luxury gadgets I would never purchase - from $20,000 gold and diamond encrusted iPod shuffles to $800 Titanium iPod Nano Cases. What I don't understand are semi-luxury items (as in items you don't really need, but might want) that aren't even all that luxurious.
The Relaxation Sound Chair from Brookstone aims to be one of those highly-coveted gamer and music enthusiast items, yet its function is lacking. It's just a regular chair that rocks on the floor and has a plug in slot for your MP3 or CD player. Of course there's also a headphone jack for private listening. The chair costs $139, which may sound inexpensive, but I for one seriously question the necessity or draw. Can't you just sit in your rocking chair and listen to your iPod? Call me when this baby will give me a massage and pedicure.
