Design Jiu-Jitsu and the Change-Stealing Chair

I'm always fascinated by the design jiu-jitsu performed when a product takes an old negative and turns it into a new positive.  (Previously I covered Stain Stamp Mugs, where coffee stains shape themselves into attractive designs on the table.)  Here's something a little sneakier, but no less clever: the Artful Dodger rocking chair is designed to steal all the change that falls from your pockets when you're sitting.  No need to dig around in the cushions either, because the change is conveniently collected in a dispenser area in the back.  And if the owner of the chair is a nice guy, he'll even give you your change back!
