Posted by Ars Technic on Tuesday, October 25, 2021 04:47:52While Microsoft’s upcoming HoloLens headset is billed as “the world’s first fully-integrated, massaged VR-enabled body,” that promise has yet to materialize.
Until now, Microsoft’s massages have largely been limited to the Oculus Rift, which was Microsoft’s initial foray into VR-centric tech.
Now that Microsoft is moving on to HoloLens (though the company has yet announced a timeframe for launch), Microsoft’s VR-focused massagers have taken center stage.
Microsoft’s Tasty Touch Massager is one of the first massagers that’s been designed specifically for HoloLens.
It’s an all-in-one device, capable of being used in conjunction with either the Oculus or HTC Vive headsets.
TastyTouch Massager comes with three different attachments: a headband, a massage chair, and a massage ball.
Microsoft is billing the device as being designed to offer a “tasteful massage experience,” and its description on its official website says that it will be “a full-body massage experience.”
TastyToys Massager, Microsoft Tasty touch MassagerTastyTouch’s “taste-tested, ergonomic massage chair” is designed for the HTC Vive, and Microsoft’s description on the company’s website makes it clear that it’s designed specifically to work with Tasty’s Taptic Touch Massage Chair attachment.
It can be used to massage and massage both hands and both feet at once.
Microsoft claims that the chair can be combined with the Tasty Tasty Massage Table attachment, which attaches to a desk or desk-like surface.
TapticTouch’s TAS Massage Board also makes use of the HTC Taptic touch attachment.
TAS is an attachment that attaches to any surface with a magnetic force field, and the TAS Board is the only one that can be integrated into the Tasteful Touch Massages chair attachment.

The TAS board attaches to either the HTC or Oculus Rift headsets, and can be inserted by either of those devices.
TAST massagers use a wireless attachment that can work with either of the aforementioned headsets, though it’s unclear how well it’ll work with HTC and Oculus headsets.
Microsoft says that TAS will be compatible with “many different VR experiences” and that it has “proven to deliver high-quality massage experiences in the TAST chair.”
Microsoft’s TASS Massage is the second Tasty toy that’s coming to Holo, after Microsoft’s Touch Massaging Surface.
Both products will be available in October, though Microsoft’s product description makes it sound a little less than official.
It lists the TASS as “a unique massage device with a TAST Touch massage surface.”
Microsoft says that its TASS massager “is an ergonomic massager that offers a comfortable massage experience for both hands.”
Microsoft also describes the Tasha Massage as a “massage chair with TAST TAST touch,” and the company claims that it “is designed to fit comfortably in your hands.”
Tasha’s Tasha is available in three colors: red, white, and black.
Microsoft says Tasha will be launching “soon” with the Microsoft TASS Chair attachment, and will cost $99.99 (or $159.99 if you’re looking for the TST Massage attachment).
Tasha also has a TAS attachment, but that’s not listed on the TTS Massage list.
Tasha’s product page has a “limited edition” sticker on it, though that’s about it.
Microsoft has not confirmed that the TBS Massage chair attachment will be coming with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, nor has Microsoft said whether it plans to make Tasha compatible with the Oculus Touch platform.
