    When one thinks of wearable, they usually think of a VR Headset that lets call people just by a wink, or maybe, a health checkup on the wrist which coordinates the vital signs of body. However, this Astride Bionix wearable is more mechanical, and well, simple.

    The device is like a pair of  kickstands for the human body and allows you to sit anywhere you please. It can be worn like shorts and it comes with a harness which extends to form the legs of a chair.

    In 2015, a Swiss Company called Noonee had already started selling these wearable chairs. Back then however, it was just for the workers at BMW. Noonee had partnered up with Audi to make these wearable chairs. Similarly, Ofrees sells a $900 consumer wearable chair on Amazon.

    All these devices are exoskeletons which actuate into chairs. Astride Bionix is sure that there’s room in the consumer market for the product as well. LEX comes with two mechanical arms hinged at the glutes. When the wearer takes a sitting position, gravity keeps the arms perpendicular to the ground, creating two legs. The wearer’s own legs form the other points of stability. Two legs of the wearer and two of the harness make a very good chair.

    Astride Bionix has come up with quite a catchy slogan that goes “Comfort anywhere, anytime.” It is advertising its product as a fashion and lifestyle commodity and is targeting urban commutators who have to wait for bus lines or public transport. LEX is available for $300 on Kickstarter.
