Infrared Massage Chair

Inventor: Family Inada

There are plenty of massage chairs that will vibrate energetically up and down your weary body, but the new H.9 Inada Chair from Japan puts some brains behind the brawn. When you sit in it, infrared sensors scan your body to detect some 350 acupressure points. Once oriented, the leather chair begins a customized, Shiatsu-style massage accompanied by synchronized music meant to melt your tension away. If the synthesizer music drives you nuts, you can always pop in a CD of your own.

Availability: In December, for $3,500
