At present, features such as touching, voice recognition, optical character recognition are popular. The rapid domination of smartphone based mainly on touch screen and connectivity to cloud means the win of new input type (touching) and tele-communication enhancement. Behind this scene is data analytics and connection between users and cloud. Recently, the appearances of voice recognition functions push a new step to the development of HCI input. Whereas, there is lack in output system, except for visual capability. There are significant changes of screens such as LED, plasma, retina,.. with resolution 4K or even 16K. This disclosure suggests the use of device, which will support Animation or Personal chair (PC), then the PC can run along with screen actions (normal screen, smart phone screen, or virtual glasses) to give end users better feelings. In this proposal, I suggest we build a mini chair recorder to create content or actions for typical personal chair (like racing simulator or simulation cockpit) with open library. Basing on the open library, play or script producers can use chair recorder to make PC data. After that, they can show the visual movement of chair to review, edit or adjust. Moreover, they can then use for them-selves or upload to cloud or application store for other people.

Personal Chair recorder
Context for PC
Along with the development of HCI, the input and output system are developed accordingly. At present, feature such as touching, voice recognition, optical character recognition are popular. The rapid domination of smart phone OS based mainly on touch screen and connectivity to cloud means the win of new input type (touching) and connection enhancement. Behind this scene is data analytics and transferring between users and cloud. Recently, the appearances of voice recognition functions (application) like virtual assistants push a new step to the development of HCI input. Whereas, there is lack in output system, except for visual capability. There are significant changes of screens such as LED, plasma, retina,,.. with resolution 4K or even 16K.
We can see this balance between input and output system:
Input - Output:
Micro - Speaker
Key- Text display
Camera - Picture
Game box/ Game station controller - Animation/ Personal chair (PC)
We believe that, with the focus of cross-industry resource, price of chair can reduce, for example, from 10K USD to 3000 USD, as with smart phone now. As a result, a PC is suitable for a person to afford. More than that, when the price goes down (as optimization in piston and electronic board like the revolution in high quality of modern smart phone with touch screen), the chair would be used in family (entertainment room) as well as in company (club, relax room) or anywhere suitable. Clearly, with the huge number of smart phone users, the use of PC will have leverage. Hopefully, people find it interesting when sitting on PC to play games or view videos, even normal video but 3D ones.
In my opinion, we should design solution for any PC- related companies to use in following sectors: game playing; film entertainment; other usage (simulation, education,…)
In my proposal, I suggest we build a typical personal chair with following components:
1. Seat (surface of seat)
2. Leg (piston or support)
3. Chair drivers
4. Open library for chairs
For the open library, play/script producers (content producers or developer) can use to make PC data, and the data file should be in this type:
1. Positions of Leg

2. Movement of Seat 3. Design of chair
Our library can show the visual movement of chair for developers to review.
In fact we can compare our model to smart phone ecosystem as in figure 1-3, figure 1-4. Where chair is considered as smart phone (smart phone for displaying visual content but chair for display space (3 axis) content).
Moreover, like smart phone company, we should produce a typical one to be a standardized prototype for any software update (figure 1-1). Then we build a library following core PC activities. The typical chair should have 3 legs with a surface. Other PC producers would follow those models to produce their own (as smart phone manufacturers to produce their own mobile based on standardized smart phone). Software developers will write code...
