Well, New York design consultancy <a href="http://www.formnation.com/">FormNation</a> wanted to answer that very question, and did so through a project called Chairgenics.</p> <p>In order to create &ndash; or perhaps breed &ndash; the ultimate chair, designer Jan Habrakan brought together what are generally considered the &ldquo;best&rdquo; chairs around. The &ldquo;genetic make-up&rdquo; of these chairs &ndash; their ergonomics, durability, construction, cost and aesthetics, each of which was awarded a value of 1 to 10 &ndash; was then considered from as objective a viewpoint as possible. For example, while Habrakan had to &ldquo;play God&rdquo; in making an assessment of the results, he used Google and Yahoo! search popularity as a way of determining aesthetic appeal.</p> <p>These assessments formed the &ldquo;gene pool&rdquo; for an automated computer design process that (with some boundaries set to prevent bizarre mutant chairs) eventually came up with the chair you see above and a few others like it. The first 3D printed full scale models of Chairgenics&rsquo; chairs will be exhibited at NYC&rsquo;s MAD Museum until 6th July 2014.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Interviewly: making Reddit’s fascinating but confusing AMAs far easier to read </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Reddit&rsquo;s AMA (Ask Me Anything) sessions, in which a celebrity, expert or otherwise interesting person fields questions from the site&rsquo;s millions of users, have become almost legendary (by web standards, anyway) &ndash; but if you read them on the Reddit site itself, things can get confusing very quickly. Reddit&rsquo;s layout was never designed with interviews in mind, and that means these unstructured interviews are generally displayed in a somewhat odd order (by default, the most upvoted questions will appear first). Everything is jumbled up.</p> <p>A new site called <a href="http://interviewly.com/">Interviewly</a> aims to change that. Creator Dan Drabik has taken many of the most popular AMAs (including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barack Obama, Aaron Paul and Dave Grohl), edited them into a more readable format and added pictures.
