He cleverly conceived a design on the back of his kid's T-shirt so that he can relax while his son plays!
Work life is extremely exhausting, both physically and mentally. Sitting for long hours in one position while gawking at the screens all the time is definitely not a healthy lifestyle, but what can be done about that, right? Everyone's gotta do what they got to do, even if it means putting your body through constant back pain, muscle tension and what not! However, sometimes kids can be helpful. A genius Japanese dad came up with an amazing idea where he combined playtime for kids and a good old back massage.
He cleverly conceived a design on the back of his T-shirt, that is for his kid to play and he plays, his father will be relaxing. Ken Kawamoto is an engineer for Google, but above anything, he is a dad. A smart dad actually. Ken knows that his kid loves playing with trains and rolling them over him while he is lying down, his idea and that is when the idea bulb popped on.
Therefore, he then thought of inventing a massage-T-shirt for his back, and a playing railway track T-shirt for his son. To make sure that his son hit the right spots while rolling the train at the back of his T-shirt, he specially designed areas and named 'Right Shoulder', 'Left Shoulder', 'Spine' and 'Lower Back'.
Putting these indications of T-shirt will help the wearer to identify which area demands more attention or more vigorous rolling. Ever since this new became viral, the post has been retweeted over 30,000 times and looks like people totally love the ideation. In a video, one can see Ken's son enjoying his playtime as he drives the train at the back of Ken's T-shirt.
The “massage t-shirt” is available online and costs 2,500 YEN ($22). However, the color of the track remains the same, but there are different T-shirt colors available online.
