OHCO M.8 massage chair may incorporate sense and sound from Esqape VR experience
BOULDER, Colo. – Luxury shiatsu massage chair resource OHCO and virtual-reality specialist Esqapes, will showcase how VR technology is changing the massage experience in a presentation at the Jan. 7-9 CES 2020 in Las Vegas.
Demonstrations occurred at the OHCO booth, space 21066, located in South Hall 1 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
During a session at the Esqapes wellness center, an Oculus VR headset and the OHCO M.8 massage chair will be paired to provide more than 10 different entrancing environments accompanied by extra-sensory components such as sound, heat, and scents, resulting in total immersive relaxation. Each component is triggered by the VR software and was designed to complement an exotic locale. For example, users feel warmth near their toes and smell clove and cinnamon as they lounge by the fireplace in the “Snowbank Cabin” environment.
“At Esqapes, our goal is to use beautiful, exotic, VR environments to transport people to another place, as they enjoy their full body massage in the luxurious M.8 massage chair,” said Micah Jackson, founder, and CEO of Esqapes. “We conducted extensive research and chose the M.8 because it’s the epitome of high-quality, and we are excited to work with OHCO at CES to showcase how VR technology and massage therapy can be paired together for the benefit of relaxation and overall wellness.”
The M.8 enhances each session at Esqapes by delivering a transcendent massage experience that is refined to feel human. Designed by Ken Okuyama, the creative mind behind the Ferrari Enzo and Maserati Birdcage, the M.8 massage chair integrates visual refinement and groundbreaking capabilities and is the only chair on the market that incorporates rear-swinging doors to deliver a new level of convenience and accessibility in massage chairs.
“From the inception to the finished product, the OHCO M.8 massage chairs were meticulously designed with the intent to set a new standard of what a luxury massage chair should be,” said Cliff Levin, founder, and CEO of OHCO. “Together with Esqapes, we are proud to be at the intersection where emerging technology and timeless traditions meet to help spearhead the future of health and wellness.”
