DRM Chair

The DRM Chair has only a limited number of use before it self-destructs. The number of use was set to 8, so everyone could sit down and enjoy a single time the chair. A small sensor detects when someone sits and decrements a counter.

Every time someone sits up, the chair knocks a number of time to signal how many uses are left. When reaching zero, the self-destruct system is turned on and the structural joints of the chair are melted.

And the purpose of this amazing device that not only leaves you without a chair but makes a mess of your floor too? Yep, your guess is as good as mine.

I know it's supposed to be 'art' and all, but the chair has a pretty poor structure to begin with. notice how the people sitting ease themselves straight down? it's because they have done this before, and know that the chair performs pretty poorly as a chair itself. the slightest twist of their bodies would cause the thing to give out.

'A' for the concept. 'C' for the execution
