5 of the best – wearable tech
As many of us know all too well, sitting at your desk for lengthy periods of time can wreak havoc on your posture. While you could employ someone to whip you each time your posture slips into that of a moody adolescent, there is a less masochistic solution: Posture Suspenders.
Created by a student from Denmark, the Posture Suspenders will deliver a real-time vibration to remind you to straighten up when they detect slouching. They're not for sale, though. If you want in you'll have to build your own using an Arduino Pro Mini micro-controller board, a normal pair of suspenders, an XeBee wireless radio and a 3.6 volt battery. It might not improve your wardrobe, but they'll certainly improve your posture.
