Now we can just sit as we wait and wait and wait and do useful things like taking a nap, reading a magazine or even, sitting, eating and binge watching shows on our tablets — which (according to us) can be good for your health.
And of course, because it's just a prototype, it seems like these seats still have a few quirks. Watch the video above to see the #SmartSeats in action.

The Kim Kardashian Ice Lolly
An ice cream company has created this topical... but quite disturbing lolly. The' Kimsicle' pays homage to the reality star's notorious photo shoot in which she had very little on. The company - The Licktators - has even wheeled out a "nutritionist" who claims that its ingredients like phytoestrogen could boost hormone levels and "lead to a big boost in the size of the posterior."
Who needs a selfie stick?
Shoe brand Miz Mooz understand that we need to look good AND take photos of ourselves at all time. Introducing the Selfie Shoes.
The camera-ready footwear lets you insert your phone into the port at the front, raise it to the perfect angle (short skirts not advised) and press the toe-activated button to take the photo. The bonus is that you can now wave both arms around in the picture.
These boots are made for walking
Hunter wellies now come dog-sized. Though you have to buy twice as many.
Heads in the sand
We're actually a little upset that this one may not be real. Coffee shop Costa has imported Japanese-inspired ostrich pillows into its shops, so that weary visitors can bury their heads in them for a 15-minute nap. Heaven.
Marmite's being very transparent
The yeasty spread brand has announced a new "clear" version which looks like it would make for a confusing breakfast experience. Apparently, psychologists say "eating dark-coloured foods for breakfast can provoke feelings of negativity". This "light" and "positive" Marmite cousin has taken a mere 15 years to develop, and will keep you feeling chirpy all day long.
Richard Branson's relocating
Yes, that's right, Richard Branson has found a new base for his some of his Virgin businesses.Richard blogged that he was moving his business after discovering that his entrepreneur great-great-uncle, Reuben S Branson, founded the city of Branson. In a final flourish to what is surely one of the more high-profile April Fools of the day, Virgin America says it is naming its newest plane Jolene, to honour Dolly Parton, who launched a business in Branson. A Dolly channel will play her hits on repeat on the plane (only from 9 to 5).
Passing the test
The future is here. RED Driving School is the first in the UK to offer lessons for driverless cars, so everyone can be up-to-speed on the latest kind of vehicle. All instructors will be able to teach students how to operate the vehicles... which shouldn't take too long.
Crisp fans, rejoice! Walkers claims to have developed the first ever 'self-seasoning potato'. Its farmers have adopted techniques like watering the potato plants with vinegar and sprinkling salt on them (salt and vinegar) or rolling wheels of cheese across the earth and growing onions among the crops (cheese and onion), so that the spuds pop out of the ground ready-flavoured.
Do you love cats so much you could spray yourself in cat urine and pretend to be one? Dog charity Dog's Trust is looking for people to disguising themselves as felines to test out whether its homeless dogs would be comfortable in house with a cat. The lucky volunteers must be willing to be sprayed with urine so the dogs are convinced they are a cat, to purr and meow on cue and willing to wear a cat suit (which will be provided). The chosen few will take part in a "intensive cat craft training session."
We're going Back To The Future, again...
Great Scott! Fire up your DeLorean, because this time 88mph may not be fast enough.
Now we're confused
