Space Invaders Becomes Real (Comfy) Furniture

Space Invaders Becomes Real (Comfy) Furniture

Fend off alien invasions from the comfort of this geeky couch, designed to look like an alien from Space Invaders

When it comes to videogames, it's hard to find a more iconic title than Space Invaders. As a result, the aliens from from the game are incredibly popular and a cottage industry has managed to spring up around the character design. While custom T-shirts and magnets often feature the character, no one's tried to create a themed piece of furniture ... until now. Designer Igor Chak has created the "Space Invader Couch", which is a dead ringer for one of the invading aliens and looks big enough for two people to sit on comfortably.

Chak's design is certainly entertaining, and it sounds absurdly comfortable. The couch is meant to be covered in black leather and stuffed with memory foam. Accordingly, Chak intends for the couch to include "two glass surfaces," presumably on top of the arms (based on the slight reflections shown in the concept art).

While the concept has been designed, it'll be a while before it actually becomes available to buy. Chak has stated that he's looking for a company to help him produce the furniture piece en masse. When it does hit the market, you can almost be assured that it won't be cheap, based on the memory foam and leather. That said, I'd certainly be proud to own something like this as part of my gaming setup.

Awwww, that thing looks cute!

If I had the money and was more geekish I would buy this, but I fortunately I do not have those two things.

EDIT: That is, if it does get mass produced...

I think this makes the top of the "really cool stuff I would buy if I could afford it" list.

(they haven't even fixed a price tag yet, but trust me)

Now that should be in every hardcore geek's living room

It looks inconcievably expensive, but do want, do want indeed.

I'd love to own this as well as any other gaming furniture. I have a cool idea, and OLED 3DHDTV with a parallax barrier screen shaped like a Game & Watch. That would be awesome.

Day made!

That couch really does not look comfy in any way whatsoever. I still want it.

Give that man a medal. He has successfully completed every geek's secret fantasy of having their very own Nerd-Cave.

WANT
I need ways to express my nerdyness apart from t-shirts!

One of my first games I played after Yoshi's Island. MUST. ACQUIRE. NOW!
There are some really good child memories there!

There is no way in hell I'll ever be able to afford something that beautiful.

*stares longingly at couch* sigh...

I'm gonna buy an army of them and drop them out of my window! Game over, people on the street, game over.

Now that us awesomne! Hehe! Retro furniture!

I now know what God looks like - he's a piece furniture shaped like an enemy from 1978!

Sofa designer is credit to team!

WHY wasn't this created during the 80's? I mean we had dance moves, records and everything on these guys.

And then came Pacman and it REALLY got silly.

Aw jeez, another reason I'll be broke soon.

It's never a good sign when you go to the website and it states

Business speak for if you have to ask the price you can't afford it

I hope they make a spaceship-shaped couch as well. I'll shoot down your damn couches.

Am I just unbelievably out of touch with reality? This thing definitely looks expensive, but the combination of comfort and pure awesome makes me think that paying extra for this thing would be totally worth it.

Looks awesome. I hope if this thing gets mass-produced that the escapist will make sure I know!

Oh wow I really have to have it! Pity he's only made one. That thing would sell like crazy!!

How many 80s nerds are going to instinctively push air buttons when they see this?

I would seriously consider buying one. Perfect addition to a geeky games room

You have no chance against my three different kinds of ships!

dead ringer for one of the invading aliens

Sorry, just had to hinge off of a word for a sec.


Anyways, I'd buy one of those couches. And I'd try to put Space Invaders on the arm rest.

That's kinda lame. Not something I'd really want to adorn my room with, except under certain circumstances. I'd rather a proper lazy boy ;)

This is truly comfy furniture. Some of popular design of home furniture is cheap bedroom furniture, cheap dining room furniture and cheap fabric sofas can find from furnituredirectuk.net
