If you’re a big-time gamer, Buddy the game chair is officially the only friend you need in your life.

Video games today are made with insanely high-definition graphics, and anyone who plays them often knows that the best seat in the house is right in front of the screen, just so you don’t miss a single minute of the action. Sadly, this usually leaves you on the floor, which is torture for your knees and back. Buddy has an outward-leaning spine which easily adapts to your front or back side, and a curved headrest that doubles as arm support. It’s padded with soft foam, and actually helps you maintain good posture while playing.

Buddy is already on the top three spots on Amazon Japan’s ‘home’ best-seller list, and it’s not even out until April. If your Japanese isn’t half bad, or if you feel brave enough to manage it with Google Translate, you can secure one here for about US$40.
