A bar stool that enables you to pedal around the bar without fear of losing your seat.

Two pedals attached at the bottom of the bar stool which when rotated with your feet drives a small chain, in turn will set the the four little wheels into motion which are attached to the each of the four bar stool legs...steering,nah you're in a bar.

Plans on building your own (with steering) [cowtown, Oct 05 2004, last modified Oct 17 2004]

       Alcoholic beverages, darts, and now ... vehicles! But I would argue in favor of cheap remote control car style steering. Pedal forward to proceed on course, pedal backward to turn to desired heading.

       lol   

       My son just said u could use one of those stools that also has a little back and sides and steer with the arm rest.   

       of course it would lead to jousting, polo and rugby matches all on stools. It could get messy. The more classy establishments will have small electric motors on board their stools.   

       (let ub do the obligatory stools pun??)

       Absolutely silly, and very cute. It's like unicycle for the lazy. +

       I'd prefer adult versions of baby walkers. Complete with drink holders and wireless internet connections.

       I see the bar-stool racing frenzy taking over at bowling alleys everywhere.

       Just have all the bar stools on conveyor belt that makes its way along the bar, into the bathroom, and then back to the end of the bar, ad infinitum.

       you don't buy beer, you rent it.

       The good thing about a unicycle is, who's gonna steal it?   

       And could I have some grease over here, bartender? My stool is squeaking. (Just...never mind, peter2).

       You can have races at various stages of intoxication.

       I hate to be the lone disenter on this one but, for the love of cr*p, this sounds like an absolute liability nightmare. This is like a Segway marketing plan (cite: UnaBubba)drawn from the addled mind of a meth addict (not to impugn your creativity, sense of mirth, or general good character, skinflaps). waugsqueke seems to be a little closer to the mark. someway to inhibit wanton acts of battery and unspecified maimings.

       How about a stack of liability waivers at each seat? Sign it before you drink!
