This is a shiatsu hand massager for gamers

Many of us know of at least one person who plays games for hours, possibly ruining their hands in the process. To help alleviate their tired mitts, the Japanese company Bauhutte has created a handheld massager for gamers.

The MSG-01H-BK hand massager, which works on both hands, has a 15-cover airbag for each finger and a shiatsu plate for the palm. There are two main options: Shiatsu mode for the whole hand, and one that aims to stretch fingers.


There are a few severe conditions, as well as optional hand warming that is said to improve circulation. You have to slide your hand on each side to massage your thumb. The hand massager shuts off automatically after 10 minutes. Bauhutte recommends using the device before game sessions to warm your hands, when at rest and afterwards to cool down.

While some might scream at a handheld massager for gamers, it's not too silly of an idea. Many esports competitors use hand flowers between rounds to absorb moisture, keep their fingers tidy and improve circulation. Some esports agencies hire a masseuse to keep players in good shape.

Other companies have made handheld massagers, though it makes sense that Bauhutte is marketing its version to gamers. It received attention last year for its play bed, and the company sells a wide range of furniture and amenities with gamers in mind, such as a portable foot massager.

Bauhutte Handheld Massager is only available in Japan for now and costs around $ 150. Kotaku notes, the company has an English site, so it may take the device elsewhere as well.
