Massage chair is an equipment that provides relaxation and recovery to people. The massage chair industry has been growing steadily every year. Time Machine is one of the most advanced products in the industry and it is designed to imitate ‘human massages’. Time Machine avoids the rough and mechanical design of conventional massage chairs by making its features emulate the hugging stance of a person.
Users can enjoy various functions during their massage. For instance, a hidden display installed in Time Machine comes out during the massage session and creates a private sphere in which users can enjoy movies or listen to music. The chair can also recline 180 degrees. Moreover, users may watch the screen without turning their heads as the screen rotates to adjust to the reclined angle. Such functions can be easily controlled through the controller attached on both armrests.
