Chinese design and innovative product platform Jiae.com recently held a competition at our co-working space The Node under the theme of “When Hardware meets the World Cup”. iMusic BodyRhythm, a song-triggered massage vest which launched crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter last year, is among a slew of interesting hardware rivals that joined the contest. The product is now available for pre-order at US$149.95.

iMusic BodyRhythm is a 5.0 pounds massage vest that can be connected to your phone via Bluetooth. iMusic BodyRhythm app can pick up the music you selected from mobile devices and generate a rhythmic drumbeat on your shoulders. Powered by a music sync algorithm, the beat is auto-synced with the rhythm of your favorite music. If you want a different beat rhythm, you can simply tap and shake your iPhone to create your own drumbeat.

The vest has five kinds of pre-programmed massage sequences and users can use them in case there are no mobile device connections. Each sequence will last 15 minutes. The app also added a screen tapping feature, which will give users pokes somewhat randomly.
