The Healing Touch

The highly publicized partnership of NASA and high-end specialty retailer Sharper Image appears to have finally paid off with the introduction yesterday of the combination Mars Rover prototype and Kiddie Back and Thigh Massager. According to representatives of the joint project, reactions from children involved in initial testing of the 3-ton device ranged from "very relaxing" to "I can't feel my legs." In development for over ten years at a cost of just under $80 billion, the rover/massager is expected to hit store shelves in time for Christmas and could mean, in the words of one excited potential customer, that "the days of pretending to enjoy your girlfriend's crappy back rubs will soon be over."
