In many high-rise buildings satellite dishes are banned for safety or aesthetic reasons. But since patio furniture is still ok, Sat+ has created a chair-shaped satellite dish secretly giving you hundreds of channels without being hassled by your landlord.
The chair provides the same level of reception as a 24-inch dish, and manages to incorporate a hidden LNB, or low-noise block downconverter, which is that small arm you see positioned in front of modern dishes. The chair can even be sat on with the removable cushion installed, but since a warm body pressed against its backrest hinders reception, you’ll want to keep that spot clear if you’ve got friends over watching the game.
For the time being the Sat Chair looks like it’s only available from European sites for around $325, but as someone who suffers from similar balcony restrictions, I’m hoping local satellite providers realise what a lucrative installation option this would be for them. [SatEuropa via SlashGear]
