Here is the internet chair with magnetic stripe card reader and spikes that
retract when a seating license is downloaded from a license server
in response to input from the card reader incoroprated into the chair.
The license server is in the 19 inch relay rack behind the internet chair.
The text on the scrolling LED sign mounted to the back of the chair reads:
WEARY TRAVELLERS NO LONGER NEED TO STAND FOR HOURS ON END... USE YOUR GOVERNMENT ISSUED PHOTO ID CARD TO DOWNLOAD A FREE SEATING LICENSE.
Across from the internet chair (pictured at left) is a VGA television display on a TV stand (pictured at right), which displays the following message:

By swiping your card, you agree to be bound by our Terms and Conditions. Your swipe indicates your agreement to these Terms and Conditions of use.
