Massage me is a wearable massage interface that turns a video game player’s excess energy into a back massage for an innocent bystander. Massaging someone is usually a boring task. If you’re lucky the most you’ll get after a lot of pleading is a five-minute back rub. The artists noticed the potential of gamers, obsessed individuals in our midst, whose fingers seem to contain an endless source of energy. Transferring the concept of massage into the gaming scenario enables an innocent bystander to receive that long desired ever lasting back massage.
