Designed by Ken Okuyama, the M.8 integrates visual refinements that deliver a great massage experience. Inspired by Okuyama’s automotive roots with Porsche, Ferrari and Maserati, the M.8 incorporates rear-swinging doors to deliver convenience in the massage chair. 

“Getting in and out of a traditional massage chair can be a challenge for older users and anyone with back issues,” says Levin. “The M.8 is the only massage chair on the market that has successfully addressed this issue.”

The M.8 boasts a number of advanced features, including:

  • DeltaWave massage engine provides robust massage capability and movements of knead, tap, pulse, and roll in a wide range of speeds, allowing simultaneous pneumatic and mechanical intensity adjustments that offer with many intensity settings.
  • Choreographed and refined to feel human, the M.8 offers a wide variety of movements like “delta knead,” and “delta tap”, which constantly changes the rate of movement to imitate the professional human hand massage experience. 
  • An ultra-slow tap creates a “pressing” sensation, while a proprietary “breathe” sequence allows users to match their rate of respiration to the breathing movements of the M.8.
  • MaxTrack seat and back massage track geometry conforms to the user’s body and offers independent adjustment of back, legs, and seat.
  • Auto-Adaptive Design and Shiatsu Point Locator personalises the massage and automatically adjusts to user height, then detects shoulder position before a massage begins. Using the scanned data, the chair focuses on the shiatsu points of the back and glutes specific to the user’s body, resulting in a customised experience.  
  • Heated DeltaWave rollers help loosen muscles and promote improved blood circulation. Additional area heat in the neck, shoulders, foot, palm, back, and seat gently warm and relax the body.
  • Proprietary rear-swinging door design allows for ease of entry and exit. 
  • Bluetooth speakers integrated into the headrest of the chair allow users to connect their devices to play music, relaxing tones, or guided meditations to enhance their experience.

CES: Unistellar eVscope telescope

At CES last week, Unistellar claimed to provide a new way of stargazing through eVscope telescope. The compact, connected telescope uses light-amplification technology that gives observers a crisp and detailed view of galaxies, nebulae, and comets through its eyepiece. Making the telescope easy to use, it frees users of the need to study constellations or polar-star alignment: instead, they just turn it on, choose the object they want to see on the Unistellar app, and let the telescope find and track the desired object.

“The eVscope is, by far, the most successful space-related crowdfunding project ever,” said Laurent Marfisi, CEO of Unistellar. “It’s vivid proof that the eVscope speaks directly to the pure sense of wonder astronomical observations inspire in human beings. And it further encouraged those of us who work at Unistellar to deliver on the expectations we’ve set, both for ourselves and for the eVscope.”

Unistellar’s story is connected to Las Vegas. Two years ago, the startup held some of the earliest demonstrations of the eVscope, then in its proof-of-concept phase, at CES. The massive interest generated during those demos, and others in the San Francisco Bay Area, New York City, Marseille, and Berlin, helped Unistellar achieve one of the most successful startup campaigns in Kickstarter history. Thanks to this success and the success of a follow-up Indiegogo InDemand campaign targeted at later backers, Unistellar has now raised more than $3-million and will receive an Indiegogo Innovation award for its successful campaign.
CES is also where Unistellar’s citizen-astronomy ambitions got an enormous boost when the company’s founders met Dr Franck Marchis, senior astronomer at the SETI Institute. Dr. Marchis has since joined the start-up as Chief Scientific Officer to develop the company’s citizen-science component. Thanks to a partnership between Unistellar and the SETI Institute, the eVscope’s users will be able to join a large community of observers who contribute to scientific discovery while witnessing special astronomical events like comets, supernovae, and asteroids.
