massagar is a very common thing. and so are the heating seats. This is a new concept all together. And fixing a massagar makes this look bulky unlike the sleek cover what we are designing

The product is under development stage and we have developed a few proto type samples which are being used by myself and a few other members of my developing team. We plan to launch this in market by mid MAY.

Are they fitted on the back side of the seat therefore the passenger in the rear can touch them ? Is there something in place to stop kids sitting in the back from attacking it ?

How big are the planned fans ? Are they low profile ?

Also any links to the mattresses you make ?

the fans will be in a protective cover. not exposed. so no touching business

very small fans. you can hardly feel their presence.

will provide more details at a later stage. cannot disclose more at this moment. hope you guys understand.

Thanks for all the information so far. I look forward to seeing this product only concern I would have is the efficiency of the device where these leather/pvu type covers are installed. Are you going to let a few team-bhp members test a prototype ?

i think that this is something that my whole family will be interested in, and not just that, if the product is well priced, and proven highly effective, people with multiple cars will give you a lot of repeat business...

I speak for myself when I say that I would be willing to spend between 1000-2000 rupees per seat for something like this. However I implore you to look at a power source beyond the in car power socket. Perhaps a little more complicated wiring.

Also is this thing a seat cover or something you place on your seat, but it doesn't cover much area? I only ask this because I have some really expensive leather in my cars and would hate for them not to be seen [Should be the same case with owners of any luxury cars]

This would be just the thing for me. I prefer to keep the a/c off once I am out of city limits but cannot because my back starts to feel like I have a hotplate strapped to it. I would be quite willing to spend upto Rs 5k per seat for this provided that this thing actually does its job, i.e keep my back cool without the a/c.

Would strongly recommend that you do. I volunteer my sweaty back for this.

at this point we have not come to any price decission.

we are initially plannig to launch this for front 2 seats. may be sold in sets or 2 individuals. havent really come to that decision. the covers will be launched in with 2 options, basic fabric as well as a high quality leather. (suitable for premium cars or premium fabrics.

Will surely pm you if we come to a decision of giving the proto types out for testing. and for this i dont mind sending one over to you and get some valuable feedback.

The idea of cooling /heating seems to be awesome .. especially with AIR . What the heck , I woulndt mind if there was a commercial sense to this thread . Atleast I can get hold of something which other people dont have and which seems innovative at this point of time .

And a word of caution . While testing make sure you are within the Heat limits /cold limits of a Human butt . I certainly wouldnt want to get my butt fried or frozen.. Hehe

For a double bed mattress it is 799 Pounds. So let us guess how much in Rs. for a car seat!
