Husbands whose wives complain that they game too much now have the perfect Christmas/Birthday/Valentine's Day gift: the Massage Me. Now instead of mashing the hell out of a controller, you can beat the crap out of Ryu and gun down legions of terrorist perps by giving your partner a massage thanks to this jacket.
“All you need to do is to sit or lay down in front of a video-game player,” say designers Mika Satomi and Hannah Perner-Wilson, “and you will be able to enjoy a back massage while the game lasts.” Apparently it works best for games with high degrees of button mashing, so this might just be the thing that lets you play Bayonetta in front of the missus without complaint.
NB. Not recommended for gamers with controller rage.
