Smaller than a stress ball, but a hundred times more useful, the Cardlax seems like the ultimate stress-relief tool. Be it after a strenuous workout, after a stressful day, or just when you want to relax at home and unwind, the Cardlax is a small, pocket-sized, card-shaped gizmo that simulates getting a massage. It adheres to your skin via a gel pad, and delivers short electric pulses to your muscles, causing them to contract and relax, as if a masseuse’s hands were working against your skin.
Its pocket-sized nature makes it virtually an EDC, allowing you to carry a virtual masseuse with you wherever you go, and its ability to adhere to any part of your body lets you have the comfort of getting a relaxing massage without any of the expenses, paraphernalia, or skilled technician. Its four-button interface allows you to power it on/off, change modes, and increase or decrease intensity, and that’s all it takes to get the spa experience without shelling out big bucks and heading to the parlor. Light a few scented candles and you have the aromatherapy experience too!
