Massage Me turns (legitimate) massages into gameplay


A couple of gifted graduate students have found a great use for all the excess energy and digital dexterity required in playing video games: massages.

By mapping game controllers onto soft wearable fabrics, Hannah Perner-Wilson and Mika Satomi invented Massage Me, a special device that allows gamers to give fantastic (legitimate) massages while playing their favorite video games. The website gives detailed instructions on how to build your own devices, but for those more curious than intrepid, the site also features photos and video of the product in action.
