LUMOback keeps your posture in check

I made a resolution at the beginning of the year to improve my posture. So far, I haven't made much progress. And like lots of folks I have a great excuse - I sped a lot of time on my computer. Have you ever tried to type on a keyboard all day while maintaining a perfectly straight back? It's really hard.

So fellow slouchers, a team of four has designed something extreme that might just correct our terrible posture. It's called LUMOback and it straps around the waist kinda like a belt. The smart sensor knows when you start to hunch over and will vibrate to remind you to sit up straight. LUMOback also pairs with your smartphone to track your movements and keep you up-to-date on how you're doing over time.

Drastic? Sure. Check out the video below — would you ever use LUMOback?
