Easy Chair: La-Z-Boy Cool Chair

I fantasize about building a pneumatic tube system in my house similar to those used in bank drive-ups to deliver beer bottles (I don't drink canned beer, and I'm sure you don't either) to the table beside my easy chair. I haven’t yet summoned the energy to invent it, however, and until I do, I might as well fantasize about more attainable mechanisms, such as the La-Z-Boy Cool Chair. La-Z-Boy has a history of making chairs that are more than chairs but less than soul mates; its Microsoft WebTV Plus Recliner incorporated a wireless keyboard with a WebTV receiver; but alas, that model has gone the way of the pterodactyl with the 32-foot wingspan. The company's Cool Chair has a built-in fridge (along with a massaging mechanism); unfortunately, I have been able to find them offered for sale only in the United Kingdom.
Another choice: Berkline Furniture's 45004 Custom Home Theater seating, which features power reclining, lighted cup holders, and an optional ButtKicker audio transducer to transmit bass rumblings directly to your rear end.
