Step 3: Practical Applications
The thing is, there are no practical applications for this instructable. It's just for fun. However, this doesn't mean that it's useless; you can make yourself feel safer, save a spot for yourself if it's the "nice" chair, make that office hockey more fun, or even make a racing simulator slightly more realistic.
