Everyone loves a good massage, but what about a good massage you could have anytime you wanted (within the boundaries of good taste of course). The eSSAGE self-massaging suit takes away the tyranny of spa visits, loved ones and trained pros by empowering you to give yourself a massage, wirelessly controlled by an app.
The conceptual suit is constructed with pockets of electro-active polymers that change shape and apply pressure when prompted by an electrical charge. That charge is controlled by the person performing the massage via a stylus or finger on their Android or iOS device.
The idea is you or your masseuse can view your suit on your device and identify where you need the massage. Then you simply instruct the pockets of polymers to get to work.
Well, hello bliss — it's nice to meet you!
Because the suit would work via an app it means your masseur can be anywhere in the world — and you can receive treatment in the comfort of your home. Perhaps a Swedish pro with the right therapeutic technique can work on you, or your loved one can connect with you while they're away. Sounds pretty nice to me, and not as impersonal as some of those massage robots or chairs.
The prototype is created with sectioned pockets to provide for maximum flexibility and ease in getting it on and off. It's made from antimicrobial polypropylene to resist odors and funk — no machine-washing necessary, just a good wipe down will do. It would be stored and charged up via wireless charging garment bags.
For the record, I didn't know charging garment bags existed (and maybe they're just a prototype, too), but to charge up that wirelessly operated massage suit I wouldn't ask any questions.
The massage super suit is still a concept, and sounds like something Tony Stark would put on and indulge in after a hard day at the office. If it's good enough for him, it's good enough for me, so let's build this thing — I'm ready to suit up!
