Haptic Tub

In some Asian countries, washing feet is one kind of culture. There’re some important acupuncture points in the foot bottom.. And each one affect some specific organ in human’s body. We always immerse our two feet in hot water for long time in order to relieve fatigue. Normal tub only has the simple function of washing feet, but this new one is made of bump skin texture in the bottom, so that the feet can get interesting experience. Different shape of the bottom can also use different material, that helps making people to have fun with all kinds of haptic, and is good for health as well.
