Make Your Own
The technology inside the jacket is really very simple. We are making buttons out of soft materials and extending their outputs with wires to a central point, the plug. The neoprene layers are not functional, they just give a good feel to the jacket and make it strong enough to withstand heavy massage. underneath the neoprene there are patches of conductive fabric stuck to either side and in between there is a layer of foam with holes in it where the buttons are so that when you push on a button you are effectively bringing two layers of conductive fabric together and thus closing the switch, thus pressing the button.
Though this technology has proved to work very well so far, we still think it can be improved. We look fwd to suggestions on how to solve things simpler and more efficient. It takes about one whole day if not two to complete all three components of Massage me, which we have made the following DIY instructions for.
