Careful what music you choose - the 1812 Overture might not give you the desired outcome
The uPixie is compatible with both Mac OS and Windows
Sadly, there are only two electrodes - four or eight would have been a much better choice
Osim's web site claims for the uPixie
There are four pre-programmed massage routines plus you can make and record your own on uPixie's 2GB external memory card.
Osim is the first to venture into this market - many more are sure to follow.
OSIM, better known for its advanced massage chairs, has begun selling a US$170 thumb-sized USB massager which uses Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS - the same technology you first witnessed in biology when your teacher made a dead frog's leg twitch using electrical current), to deliver a suite of specialized massage programs from your laptop. It's a pretty good fit of technologies because you can synch the massage to your computer’s music player and massage away stress, and tone up using the tapping, squeezing and kneading of the uPixie on specific muscle groups … while you are working. You can even write and store your own massage routines.
