Who needs an actual chair when you can have a Chairless Chair? One manufacturer has created a chair that lets anyone sit wherever and whenever they like. Factory workers have a hectic daily schedule, and they are always on the go doing back-breaking tasks without space for a chair, which is why these strange-looking chairs were created.

The Chairless Chair was created by Noonee. The Swiss company’s goal when making the product is to make things easier for those who are working on factory floors. Despite its unusual structure, the product allows the person to use it easily.

Noonee writes on its website:

“These are simple devices focussed on improving ergonomics in the manufacturing industry, similar to exoskeletons but practical.”

The Chairless Chair is made of polyamide, which is light and durable.

Although the idea makes a lot of sense, it is hard to imagine that someone would allow themselves to be strapped into this weird-looking device before heading to work. But since treadmill desks are already a trend, wearing a Chairless Chair may not be too much of a stretch.

Noonee has created an exoskeleton, which was designed for the factory floor to let workers sit when they need to take a weight off.

But if the Chairless Chair does what it promises, then walking around with two skeletal legs attached to your bottom half is probably worth it. Plus, if the owner of the factory will purchase this product for all the workers, then no one will make fun of just one specific person for looking different because everyone is using it.

Could it also work for offices in the future?

The world is filled with exciting new discoveries from ancient times. Scientists have just uncovered evidence that frogs roamed the Earth during the Cretaceous Period about 100 million years ago. Interestingly, these ancient toads seem to look just like their modern-day descendants.

A new report confirms that scientists have found four frog fossils in northern Myanmar. The tiny bodies were encased in amber and offer a clear glimpse at what tropical rainforests looked like in the Cretaceous Period. In any case, the discovery is groundbreaking since frogs rarely become fossils.

One of the amber deposits reveals that the ancient frogs had died beside a few tiny insects.

There is little doubt that Elon Musk's flamethrowers are the hottest new commodity right now. After all, the fiery device produced by The Boring Company have just been sold out. However, it looks like consumers have already started misusing the dangerous product despite its lengthy terms and conditions.

The Boring Company finally rolled out Not A Flamethrower at a celebrated pick up event held at the company's headquarters. People who had pre-ordered the gadgets were given a chance to sample the power of the flamethrower on unfortunate marshmallows. Although safety was reinforced during the event, things took a dangerous turn once everyone got home.

The Boring Company's Not A Flamethrower were sold out in February but have only started shipping this summer.

Curiosity has made an exciting discovery on the surface of Mars. The rover has just found possible evidence of life on the planet billions of years ago. NASA might not quite ready to confirm that creatures once roamed the Red Planet. Nevertheless, the agency believes that the findings could mean positive things for future missions.

The NASA rover has found organic molecules in sedimentary rocks near the planet's surface. These molecules may contain hydroxen, carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen and are usually associated with life. However, their presence in the billion-year-old rocks does not confirm life on Mars just yet.

NASA's Jen Eigenbrode believes Mars may have been habitable billions of years ago.
