The internet of things is no longer limited to well, just the internet. It now includes furniture. In fact, the Lift-Bit (not to confused with Fitbit or other bits), is the “world’s first Internet-of-Things sofa.” The Lift-Bit is a modular furniture system that transforms from sofa, to chair, to bed, to chaise lounge… to whatever else your creativity dreams up.
The Lift-Bit consists of a cluster of bright green, upholstered stools which are motorized using a linear actuator. This means that the cushions on the stool can be raised or lowered. Furthermore, it can be controlled through gestures, or of course, a mobile app, it’s an ideal piece for any modern dweliing where lots of things are already controlled using apps and various remote controls, now your furniture will be too. The piece is perfect for anyone but especially for teens and just your people, you can invite your friends and have fun altogether, the more people, the better! You can lie on it, sit on it, meditate on it, communicate with friends, surf in the net or read or do whatever else you may want. The Lift-Bit system is also good at keeping itself entertained. When “bored”, it will start shapeshifting into different configurations to keep users on their toes. Such a cool sofa is a great idea for those who want a multifunctional piece, which isn’t boring in any sense and can be controlled through your phone or laptop, so modern and so cool!
