A robotic massage chair is a chair that contains internal electronic motors and gears designed to massage the person sitting in them. Most robotic massage chairs have some form of controller to vary the type, location, or intensity of massage.

Massaging chairs most frequently resemble recliners. There are many different types and brands, including office-style chairs that operate from internal batteries. A less expensive option is a separate massaging pad that may be used with an existing chair. Some of the available brands include Fujiiryoki, Family Inada, iRest, Masse, Omega, One Life, Kyokei, Masseuse, Back Doctor, Human Touch, NEOX, Sanyo, Panasonic, SHSS, OSIM, OTO, VGO, OGAWA, Homedics, and Oregon Scientific.

Robotic massage chairs were first brought to market in 1962 by the Family Inada company. Today, Japan is the largest consumer of massage chairs with some surveys suggesting that over 20% of Japanese households actually own a massage chair. By comparison, massage chair penetration in the US market is estimated to be in the neighborhood of 1%. The current massage chair market is dominated at the top by a three dominant manufacturers: Fujiiryoki, Family Inada, and Panasonic. After the purchase of Sanyo by Panasonic, Panasonic announced plans to eliminate Sanyo as a brand for all current Sanyo consumer products.

Massaging chairs vary tremendously in price, style and intensity, from cheap "vibrate only" chairs to full intensity models for people who require as close to a real invigorating massage as possible.

The introduction of digital photo frames has a tablet computers functions. In some situations it serves the same purpose, however, digital photo frames are generally designed specifically for the stationary, display of photographs, provide a nicer-looking frame, play videos and the most important is it has power system designed for continuous use. 


Digital photo frames come in a variety of different shapes and sizes with a range of features. The most common sizes range from 7 inches (18 cm) to 20 inches (51 cm). Some digital photo frames can only display JPEG pictures. Most digital photo frames display the photos as a slideshow and usually with an adjustable time interval. They may also be able to send photos to a printer.

Digital photo frames typically allow to display the pictures directly from a camera's memory card, and may provide internal memory storage. Some allow users to upload pictures to the frame's memory via a USB connection, or wirelessly via Bluetooth technology. Others include support for wireless connections or use cellular technology to transfer and share files. Some frames allow photos to be shared from a frame to another. Certain frames provide specific application support such as loading images over the Internet from RSS feeds, photo sharing sites such as Flickr, Picasa and from e-mail. Some frames also built for playing video content with sound, and many frames also feature remote controls. As for portable use, battery-operated units are also available in the market.

Aspect Ratio

The aspect ratio of the frames can vary. Common aspect ratios include: 4:3, 3:2 and 16:9.  Depending on the model and features, images which don't exactly fit the aspect ratio of the frame may be cropped, stretched, shrunk to fit. This could result in, respectively, images that are missing content, distorted, or which have blank space around them. This can be avoided by buying a frame with an aspect ratio that exactly matches your camera, or editing photos to the target aspect ratio before transferring them to the frame.

High-Tech Swim Suit

The high-tech swim suit was pioneered by the LZR racer suit, a swimsuit manufactured by Speedo and developed in association with then Australian Institute of Sport in 2008. The suit uses scientifically advanced materials which help reduce drag in the water, allow for better oxygen flow to the muscles and holds the body in a more hydrodynamic position. The LZR was proven to be a success when 94% of all swimmers won races whilst wearing LZR suits at the Beijing Olympics. Since then many other suits have come on the market, major names include Adidas Hydrofoil, Arena X-Gilde and Jaked01.

However, critics say the suits are a form of 'doping by technology' as their polyurethane and neoprene coatings add buoyancy. The FINA decision is the latest in a long line of controversy surrounding the technology. The ability of the suits to compress the body and trap air have caused many competitor began to wear more than one suit at a time for increased effect.

At a FINA meeting in March 2009, the bureau stipulated the any suits wore by swimmers should not cover the neck and could not extend past the shoulders and ankles. At this time, many suits including the BlueSeventy Nero Comp were banned, though the famous LZR still remained. By referring to this decision, many other suits has been banned under the formulated strict rules and guidelines on the technology aspects.
