Finally a solution for gamers who want to game but just don't have the upper body strength to support their own arms.

Ikea's Jesper is a padded bench that you straddle while playing games. The design allows you to rest your arms in front of you as you game, thus mitigating even the slightly physical benefits of long hours of gaming.


Ian Bogost theorizes that the Jesper is named after games researcher Jesper Juul. I think it's named after the guy at Ikea who had the bright idea to turn a Tantra chair into something kids can use.
