In Pictures: 10 PC products that look like science fiction

Consider them PC peripherals on the periphery of industrial design.

Gyroxus Full-Motion Control

Part captain's chair, part chaise lounge, we can almost imagine James Tiberius Kirk taking this bad boy for a spin. The Gyroxus Full-Motion Control chair doesn't have any motors or power-assist at all, but still allows for natural, immersive movement in many games (or at least that's what the manufacturer claims). The method to the madness? You control the movement by shifting around in the seat. It's as if the entire seat is one big thumbstick, and wherever you shift, your game character (or vehicle, or whatever) follows. The Gyroxus even claims to burn calories, perhaps keeping the brave daredevils who purchase this product from becoming "fat Kirk."

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
