uPixie USB Massager Works Out the Kinks While You Work
January 31st, 2012
When the firm I work for takes on new projects, we engineers are the ones who get stressed out the most. Maybe it’s psychological, but a whole lot of aches just suddenly manifest themselves: headaches, stomach aches, neck aches, back aches – even handaches (if these even exist.)
I usually relieve myself from the stress by going for a massage after work. But why not get a massage while you’re at work? I don’t mean calling your masseuse and booking one of the conference rooms for your break. Why do that when you can just have the uPixie give you one?
This is OSIM’s latest gadget in its product line that includes advanced massage chairs. Now they’re moving into the field of portable massagers with uPixie, which makes use of EMS (Electronic Muscle Stimulation.)
The cool thing about the uPixie is that you can sync the massage up with your computer’s music player, so it delivers a mix of taps, squeezes, and kneads that’s in tune and just right. It’s even compatible with both Windows and Mac systems.
The uPixie retails for $165 (USD), but is current on sale for just $99 at Osim’s site.
