• Graphene is difficult to make and expensive to purchase
  • Graphene would have to be manufactured in bigger sheets and at more affordable prices to  make the chair feasible
  • In 2010 it cost manufacturers tens of thousands of dollars to manufacture a piece of graphene about the size of a fingernail
  • Graphene for SSS 1.0 needs to be purchased to put in the semi-circular cylinder located under the chair
  • The seat will be expensive to make in large quantities
  • Currently graphene will cost consumers US $70-$90 per square meter 
  • The SSS 1.0  isn't here today because it takes a lot of time and money to produce it efficiently 
  • The SSS 1.0 hasn't been invented yet because the materials are so expensive that the seat would be too costly for airlines to purchase
  • Tests would have to be run to ensure that the graphene will keep its shape over a long period of time
  • A research project would be carried out to see if graphene would work well for the SSS 1.0. We would conduct a plane turbulence simulation over and over again, running the testing for many hours. We would collect data on how well the chair tilts and holds the parallel line.
