Anti-Chair: a chair that uses haptic feedback to encourage movement throughout the day, reminding users to take breaks.

Touch feedback, in this case vibration, is used to notify users once they have been sat down for a certain period of time, reminding them to take a break. This encourages movement and boosts productivity, combatting the long term health problems that can result from sitting down for too long a period of time. Haptic feedback has the added benefit of being silent which reduces the chance of distraction to others nearby.
