It's 4 inches smaller in both height and width.

Faced with endless competition, massage chairs have bloated to egregious sizes in an effort to cram in as many features as possible. They kind of remind us of the Windows operating systems of the mid-'90s.

But what about the petite consumer? A smaller-boned individual might be swallowed whole by one of these undulating monsters. That's why Matsushita has made a chair that it says is sized more appropriately for women, smaller than most in height and width by 10 centimeters (about 4 inches), according to Popgadget.

The chairs, which aren't available yet in the United States, will reportedly start at $1,800. Apparently, smaller doesn't necessarily mean cheaper.
