You have to love Japan, and not just for their crazy addiction to Hello Kitty, but for all the other weird and wacky gadgets they produce. They've just given us details of their new massager, the Auto Healther Reiz DZ-270, which sounds ever so pleasant. You lie in its murky womb-like confines, and lower the head rest to cover your eyes. The machine then pummels your whole body, hopefully to a state of bliss, but be warned - any cries will be muffled through the pink hood! The speed and pressure is adjusted depending on which areas need more work, and a built-in sensor registers different areas of tension.
It's not actually that pricey, at around 8500 Euros from Danichi, and has a built-in audio system and LCD screen. It might be just the thing to sort out my back problems once and for all, but how would I squeeze this into my little flat?
