This appears to me like a gigantic beanbag compare to the beanbags that I have ever seen before. There is a review about this particular bean bag, apparently this beanbag is very comfortable.

Lifestyle: Sumo Omni Beanbag Review

by Eric Bush

Gamers like to be comfortable when they are sitting back enjoying the latest Xbox 360 title to hit the streets. For this reason alone a company that goes by the name Sumo decided that it would push it’s latest line of beanbag chairs to gamers. Time and time again I have complained to my significant other about the couch being too small or the Lazy-Boy being too old for long gaming sessions. No more, because recently I got a chance to test drive the Sumo Omni Beanbag and when I finally got around to gaming while testing it (the other times sleep prevailed), I found that gaming is actually more enjoyable when I was comfortably numb. The Omni is not your average beanbag chair; it is so much more because it basically molds to whatever shapes the owner can come up with. Sumo is marketing the Omni towards the young, tech-savy crowd and it fits perfectly; it would not surprise me to see this beanbag in a gamer’s entertainment lair, a young professional’s house, or a college student’s dorm room.I was pleasantly surprised after opening up the massive 5-foot by 3-foot box (I have a friend that lives in a smaller box) that the Omni chair arrived in because there was basically no complicated setup involved. Sumo listened to the cries of people everywhere who have ordered something off the internet, they put the entire beanbag together before it ever shipped from the warehouse. The bag itself is built out of a very resilient, rip-proof nylon material that is tough enough to handle the biggest gamers but still remains very smooth to the touch. Inside the Omni are thousands of polystyrene foam beads that cause it to mold to whatever shape needed (think space mattress like material) at the time. The Omni is 4.5′ x 5.5′ big and it only weighs 18 lbs making it roomy but light enough to move easily.

Not only will the chair change shape depending on how the user wants to sit/lay in it but it also molds itself to their body once the person has plopped down into it. The small micro-beads work their way around the body of whoever is sitting in the Omni and thus causes an almost unparalleled amount of comfort. It is so simple to shape the Omni that I found myself trying different positions multiple times in one sitting; everything from sitting straight up, to sitting in a bar-stool like chair, to lying down on a bed-like position. …
