Massage Me Jacket Doubles as Playstation Controller
The Massage Me jacket is actually an interface to control Playstation games. The wearer of the jacket simply lies down or sits, while the player pounds or presses on his or her back. Each area on the jacket corresponds to a controller button, so the creators say the interface should work on just about any game. For best results, games that require combinations of keypresses are the best–for the one on the receiving end of the massage, at least.
The soft flexible buttons are made from layers of conductive fabric and are embedded in the back of the jacket. These buttons register the massage moves and interpret them before passing them on to the console as control signals.
The concept is was actually introduced in 2007, but with life being so hectic these days, I think a massage and a video game would be great ways to de-stress.
