I just LOVE this! It looks like it ought not to be too difficult to make, if one has a junkyard to pull bits from.

(The note on the chair's back says something about don't play on this as wasps have taken up residence.)

'this thing may look cool but lets think realistically..that thing will be as uncomfortable as sitting on a cactus chair..and how are you going to get something that wide into your house/gaming room. To top it all off can you imagine your clothes after seating on a tire all day. I'm sure mom wouldn't like to get that black out of every piece of clothing you wear. Sure it'd be cool, but not very practical.

That's awesome. For use as a gaming chair it doesn't matter how heavy it is, I can't move my kids off the systems anyway.

Put a remotely activated capacitor. When they won't get off just push a button and shock them.

Old tires like that aren't too hard to find, but cutting one of those is not an easy job. I hope you have some power tools on hand. A pair of nippers and a knife is not going to make it. ;-)

Looks like it's a tractor-ish tire with two tires as seats. You're right, should be relatively easy to accomplish.
