MY FRIEND IN-BE / massage chair

MY FRIEND IN-BE
MY FRIEND IN-BE

We always need a conversation with a friend who under- stands me.
The energy effect created while sharing each other’s emotions is
huge and gives us such a boost in life.

IN-BE is a robot friend who understands my mind and health,
sympathizes with me, and suggests a tailored massage.
It also provides me with a massage and multimedia right to me
interlocking with the massager.
IN-BE welcomes us when we come back home after work, and
checks the body conditions and emotions with the voice, body
temperature, and heart beat via communication and touch.
IN-BE is my precious friend who soothes and strokes my
worn-out mind and body.
