This outrageous massage chair has A.I voice control and blackout-proof power

Self-driving cars and 100-inch TVs might capture the headlines, but any tried-and-true CES veteran can tell you that the highlight of every show is the insane massage chairs that show up every year.

The destressing devices are generally more tricked out than anything that ever appeared on Pimp My Ride. And this year, you’d be hard-pressed to find one more loaded than Bodyfriend’s Quantum.

One catch: It will cost you $6,000.

Yeah, that’s a lot, but it’s just a drop in the bucket compared to the company’s LBF-750, which was made in partnership with Lamborghini. That’s one’s a $30,000 chair – which is more than you’d pay for a Ford Mustang or Chevy Camaro.

But back to the Quantum… Aside from rubbing away the aches and pains of the day, the chair comes with an integrated Bang & Olufsen sound system, A.I. voice control that lets you target sore spots without fiddling with controls, built-in heating and air systems, and an uninterruptible power source (because who wants to interrupt their me time just because of a pesky blackout?).

You’ll also have a 10.1 inch, high-definition touch display tablet that not only showcases the chair’s user interface, but also lets you watch a variety of entertainment options.

Sure, you can buy a cheaper massage chair to soothe your sore legs, aching shoulders, or throbbing back. But it probably won’t have special settings for “brain massage” and “tinnitus massage.” The Quantum does.

The chair, which won a 2021 CES Innovation Award, isn’t exactly something you can hide in the corner – or, really, move once you find a place for it. It has a 29-inch width and weighs a whopping 335 pounds.

Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly priced the Quantum at $30,ooo. We’ve corrected and updated the story and apologize for the error.

The model will be fully electric, it will share battery technology with other electric members of the General Motors family, and it will stand proud as one of the most high-tech models the carmaker has ever released.
