The reason why this chair is featured here is that unlike the other regular chairs, this generic piece of wooden furniture got surprising skills - it can fall apart and put itself back together in a matter of minutes. Yes - It does..

Professor Raffaello D’andrea collaborated with Max Dean and Matt Donovan to finally complete the Self-assembling Robotic chair in 2006 which amazed people at many exhibitions around the world and now its a part of the permanent collection at the National Gallery of Canada.
"The Robotic Chair is guided by an overhead vision system and controlled over a wireless network by an external computer. Various algorithms govern the chair’s behavior, while the software is structured in such a way that the system can learn from its environment. The Robotic Chair keeps its controls and technology hidden under a simple wooden veneer, making it high-tech in the most unassuming way. As the chair falls apart, gathers itself together and picks itself back up again and again, it reminds us not only of our fallibility, but also of our innate capacity for re-creating ourselves."
