Lenovo is sending a promotional bus around various cities in China to highlight the flexibility of its new Yoga computer.

The idea of a tablet computer with a fully rotational screen is, in and of itself, pretty amazing, but was somewhat of a pipe dream. That was until Chinese hardware company Lenovo has made it a reality when it released the IdeaPad 13 this past January. The new gadget, which opens up laptop-style, is fully deserving of its “Yoga” nickname due to its 360 degree rotation.

That’s not the end of the story for this dastardly device. A recent promotion features a brightly colored bus, decorated with images of the Yoga, which feature sitting and office areas, but most notably, a fully-rotational chair on which riders can try out the new computer, all while doing a bit of ‘yoga’ themselves, or stretching out to whatever positions that can be accommodated. The wheel-like contraption was inspired by the flexibility of the computer itself.

The vehicle will be travelling around China and interested passers-by will be welcome to hop on and try out the gadgetry.

If you can’t make it out to Asia,  the video below gives a good sense of the ambience.
