I started to wonder about the possibility of a tentacle massage machine. To make the setting even more bizarre, it was intended to be a mass market home appliance. The tech level should be comparable to contemporary, with somewhat better electronics and data processing.
The thing that makes me wonder: is there on this tech level any practical way of inexpensively (and safely) designing such flexible tentacles? Inflatable? Some hydraulics?
EDIT (clarification): I mostly though about tentacles in style of gigant octopus. Assuming however, that someone thinks that this size is unfeasible, unpractical or too expensive for mass market then solution for mind flayer or tiny squid are also fine.
EDIT 2: People who think its an offtopic please clarify your reasoning. The setting is intended to be original but disturbing on many levels (not a planet of hats), while still NOT being a hard line dystopia. How should I ask questions for that?
EDIT 3: I mean a machine that massages human beings by using some kind of mechanical tentacles.
