Japanese company Bauhutte has just created a hand massager for gamers that helps relieve their fatigue from playing games for hours on end.
According to Engadget, the MSG-01H-BK hand massager works on both sides, has 15 layers of airbags for each finger and one plate for the palm. There are two main options, a Shiatsu mode for the whole hand and a mode that focuses on stretching the fingers.
There are several massage intensity settings as well as hand warmer options to improve circulation. The user will need to slide the hand sideways to massage the thumb. The hand massager automatically turns off after 10 minutes. Bauhutte recommends using the device before gaming to warm up your hands, during breaks, and after playing to cool down.
While some might scoff at the hand massager for gamers , it’s not a ridiculous idea. Many rival sports electronic use hands warm between half to absorb moisture, keep fingers toned and improve circulation. Some eSports organizations even hire masseuses to keep players in tip-top shape.
Other companies already make hand massagers, so it makes sense for Bauhutte to direct its hand massagers to gamers. Before that, the company also introduced a gaming bed and sold a variety of furniture and accessories for gamers, such as portable foot massagers.
Bauhutte’s hand massager is currently only available in Japan, and it costs around $150. According to Kotaku, the Japanese company also has an English website, so it can offer the device in other markets.
