Massage chair syncs with your music

Knead to your own beat


Now this is our kind of convergence product: a multimedia massage chair.

Yes, we know this kind of thing has been done before, in chairs for gaming and lounging , but Inada's "W.1 Massage Chair" takes the concept to another level. Not only will its infra-red sensors adjust automatically to hit your tsubo shiatsu pressure points, Coolest-Gadgets says, but it claims to knead you in sync with the music being piped through its built-in system.

Lest things get out of hand, it also includes a remote that can override the chair's massage levels, as well as control the media. The only thing that's not clear is whether it uses lie-detection technology .
