Abstract

A motorized seat is provided in which a seating structure can be rotated at variable speeds and directions through an associated drive motor. In close proximity to the seating structure is an array of speakers through which music is played. An occupant seated in the chair experiences a variety of acoustical and rotational phenomena as the speed and direction of chair rotation is varied in accompaniment to the music. The seating apparatus and resulting process provides for a relaxing experience.
