Put simply, this is a cross between a floor jack and an Ottoman,
controlled by Bluetooth. The Automan, at its lowest setting, is only 6
inches tall. A telescoping hydraulic jack assembly, powered by D-cell
batteries with a stow-away compartment to hold the optional AC
adaptor, can be activated
raise the cushion up to 4 feet, and can be
stopped and locked at any point between. If the included remote
control is ever lost or you don't feel like looking for it, it can be
controlled from your cellphone via Bluetooth, using a free
downloadable app. Setting profiles can be recorded to a speed dial list
for quick automatic adjustment to your favorite height.
Not this then?
Early '80s TV series, "Automan"! [neutrinos_shadow, Aug 05 2009]
||A pun in search of an idea?
||Just because the name fits, doesn't mean that it's a pun. It's the perfect name for this product.
||The second link is pretty neat, but doesn't say anything about
adjustable height. It's either open, or it's closed. And the TV
neccesitates a larger size than I prefer. Note that mine can be
made as low as 6 inches, which also can be used as a remote-
control stepstool elevator, with enough power supplied.
|| And it started as an idea in search of a punny title to do it justice
and make it fit for the Bakery.
||Does it have a flashing light and beeping sound when activated?
||so... basically something you can not only bang your shin against in the middle of the night, but your ankle or forehead also ?
