AcuTouch 9500 with HT ConnectAt CES 2011, Sharon Vaknin shows off the AcuTouch 9500 with HT Connect, a massage chair that lets you operate everything via iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad.
Hi, I'm Sharon Vaknin for cnet.com here with the first look at the Human Touch, AccuTouch 9500 massage chair. Now, you're looking at a luxury massage chair. It comes with a traditional remote, but actually, this is meant to be controlled by your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. So what you do is sit on the chair and launch your HT-connect app so you can select a part of the body that needs a little loosening up and the chair will start working. It feels so good. You can select Espresso Shots which are 5-minute massages, which are meant to just refresh you. You can also select a series of 3 Espresso Shots which will give you a 15-minute massage. Now because the massage chair is controlled by your iPod or iPad, no matter which chair you go to you can always look back at your history and select programs that you've enjoyed in the past. The Human Touch has tucked this app with programs that were created by professional doctors and athletes. The app is free and the chair is available right now for $47.99. For cnet.com, I'm Sharon Vaknin.
